For Harald Solberg (2019)

A modular composition for 14 musicians and three adjacent gallery rooms.


Between 2011 and 2018 LEMUR curated the concert series PB1898 at Bomuldsfabriken Kunsthall in Arendal. For the final concert Bomuldsfabriken commissioned a new work to be performed with an ensemble of musicians that have performed in the series. The result was For Harald Solberg, a modular work for 14 musicians and three adjacent gallery spaces. Moving between three different stations, both audience and musicians engage under different conditions. The title of the work is an homage to Bomuldsfabriken’s artistic director, but also points to Morten Feldman’s pieces from the 1970s and -80s, where textile arts are frequently referenced. The link to Bomuldsfabrikens history is thus an important connection (Bomuldsfabriken literally translates to the Cotton Factory).
