Ultima festival 2015
Concerts in James Turrell's light installations

Exclusive opportunity to experience sunset concerts with Elisabeth Vatn in James Turrell's light installations at Ekebergparken.

The Color Beneath by musician and composer Elisabeth Vatn was conceived in James Turrell's wonderful light installations in the old water reservoir on Ekeberg. On September 10 - 13 the work will be performed by Vatn (harmonium, meråker clarinet, Swedish bagpipes) and musician Anders Røine (langeleik, mouth harp, fiddle).

Contemporary artist James Turrell works with perception, color, light and space. The two location-specific works Ganzfeld: Double Vision and Skyspace: The Color Beneath were both created for the old water reservoir in 2013. While Ganzfeld explores the way colors affect our senses, Skyspace makes use of the chromatic interaction between the «concert space» and the sky at dawn and dusk.

In The Color Beneath the composer and the performer their encounter with the installation into music, in part following the composition and partly through improvisation. Consequently, none of the concerts performed in this unique setting will be identical.

The concerts are produced in collaboration with Ultima, Ekebergparken and Grappa Musikkforlag. The album The Color Beneath was recorded during fall of 2014 and is released during the Ultima festival 2015. Supported by Fond for Utøvende Kunstnere.
