Trondheim Voices and Asle Karstad – ROOMS & RITUALS

Norways leading sound designer Asle Karstad has exclusively developed and designed the effect controller ”Maccatrol” for the ensemble: a small wireless box carried on the body, enabling each singer to move freely, individually processing themselves in the room, using effects and loops. The singers perform within a surround setup, sharing space with the audience and breaking down the barrier of the conventional stage setting. This gives the audience a unique listening experience.

A triumph of true originality. Jazzinorge, NO

 

Filled with mystique and mystery, borrowing aspects from hypermodern theatre and abstract opera, bringing on multilayered non-vocalisms, slow electronica pulses, modular twists and other unusual proceedings which all fall into place .. like no album you ever heard. Nitestylez.de, DE

 

Dramatic, theatrical, daring. Skug.at, DE

Extremely good listeners discover ways to new worlds. This is high level vocal art.  Morgenbladet, NO

Collectively and cumulatively, these pieces move and unsettle the listener, bringing a sense of dislocation, and disorientation. This is art.Auralaggravation.com, GB

Sends chills up your spine.  New Sounds/NPR.org, USA
