“Atlantis, Utopia and Ulvedrømmer is a project where I play commissioned works for solo cello and my own voice, by composers Maja Ratkje, Stine Sørlie, Eirik Hegdal, Lene Grenager and Ellen Lindquist. These works explore speech and the singing voice as an extension of the instrument’s sound world and expression. The cello is the instrument that may be closest to the voice, and some works have been composed using this, but the fact that it is the cellist’s own voice used for coloring is unusual and creates an unexpected closeness in the expression. The goal is not to make the song appear as a beautiful song, but it creates its own sound in interaction with the cello and can be both singing, speaking, whistling and sounds. The project was started in connection with the Norwegian composer’s association’s 100th anniversary, and is further developed with new commissioning works, a CD recording and launch tour in the fall of 2020.” (Marianne Baudouin Lie)
