The beginning of a story - a place, time, and the creator. The exploration of various stories and eventful moments lead to collaborative creation of new experiences, new memories and emotions that therefore create a whole new story. Throughout this concert we are going to explore how old folk-inspired melodies are being created and how they came from self to life. I am going to merge the traditional music from Northern and Western Europe to contemporary interpretations and electronic instruments.
