Jacob Kirkegaard CROSSFIRE video

Jacob Kirkegaard shares his thoughts behind his work CROSSFIRE with us in a short behind-the-scenes video.

“Can I capture the energy of war and record its mechanics? Its tactility? The sound of a projectile leaving the barrel of a machine gun?”

In this video we get an insight into the ideas and process behind Jacob Kirkegaard’s orchestral work KRYDSILD / CROSS FIRE.

The work is created from sound recordings of firearms and artillery that are transcribed for orchestra.

Band of the Royal Danish Life Guards performed the world premiere of KRYDSILD in September 2022 in Copenhagen at KLANG Festival.
