Flowmatic Nights was composed to the poem written for this project by the prize-winning Danish-Iranian author Shadi Angelina Bazeghis. Besides me there were three composers who wrote a new work for this project: English-Lebanese Bushra El-turk, Iranian Farzia Fallah and Danish Josefine Opsahl. The text was translated into the mother tongues of the four composers. Tarmo Haarala translated the poem into Finnish.
The four new commissioned works are programmed together at concerts and performed by the Amazone Quartet, who's performance contributes with an additional dimension to the four new works.
In collaboration with a choreographer, the music's movements and inherent gestures are emphasized and the staging of the concert is further completed by the designer Tatiana Andersen Camre, who creates sensational clothes that tie the music together visually.
The premiere is in 8the of June 2023 in Copenhagen at KLANG Copenhagen Avantgarde Music Festival.
