The creators of the documentary opera monologue SPLIT have just released another film from the process. Again Jürgen Diemer has produced a short film based on the material he filmed at the four-day workshop at Kvindemuseet in Århus in February 2011.
This time, the film is based on a love poem written to composer and performer Line Tjørnhøj at sea by her first husband, a fellow sailor. On the last day of their time at Kvindemuseet, Tjørnhøj handed cello virtiuoso and voice performer Zoë Martlew the poem and a simple bass line and asked Martlew to improvise a simple sea song. This resulted in the Sailor Song, which became a part of their performance the same evening.
