Hildegard Sequence: O fire of the spirit

For Chamber choir & Electronics. 

Durata: C. 12'20''

Hildegard Sequence is a work that reflects on composer Hildegard Von Bingen's way of depicting nature in her composition "O ignis spiritus paracliti"(O fire of the spirit).
My goal in this piece was to take a pre-existing work by Hildegard and transform it into a modern setting. Combining the old and the new with live electronics as my main instrument.

 

The piece was composed in the summer of 2018 for Gustaf Sjökvists chamber choir, and had it's first performance on the 7th of October in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then the work has been performed at multiple festival and concerts across Scandinavia.
And during the fall of 2020 the piece was included in "Allmänna Sångens" upcoming Compilation Album.
