Event has already taken place. Long brush-strokes as Gunnel Wåhlstrand’s images are projected on the wall and set to music by Britta Byström. A beautiful and dreamlike experience for both eyes and ears with Malin Broman and a chamber ensemble.
How do you capture an image in music, light and paper? The artist Gunnel Wåhlstrand works in a water-based ink technique that has inspired the composer Britta Byström for the incomparable piece Ink-wash on Paper. Each movement in the composition is linked to a specific image that is projected on the stage while the music is played. A beautiful and dreamlike experience for both eyes and ears with Malin Broman and a chamber ensemble. The work had its premiere at the Baltic Sea Festival in 2021.
This evening we also get to experience the premiere of Britta Byström’s newly written By the Window. The piece is written for viola, double bass and prepared piano and was inspired by Gunnel Wåhlstrand’s artwork of the same name.
Malin Broman, First Concertmaster of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, has also made a video together with Britta Byström and director Andy Staples. The video work is entitled A Room of One’s Own and is based on Virginia Woolf’s essay of the same name. It is an important early feminist work, and Malin Broman plays all the instruments herself. The video went viral and had an enormous impact when it was released, and it also features on this evening’s programme.
During the evening, the artists Gunnel Wåhlstrand, Malin Broman and Brita Byström also talk about their work and the interaction between the different art forms. The ticket price includes a bound book with Gunnel Wåhlstrand’s paintings, which can be picked up in the foyer in connection with the concert.
