This year’s SPOR Festival in Aarhus has begun.

Part of the programme – which focuses on reality and everyday life – is a concert Friday night with the ensemble SCENATET. The ensemble will perform Christian Winther Christensen’s new work Chorale, a piece inspired by Christensen’s 2008 composition Knocking out of Heaven’s Door. SCENATET premiered Chorale a few weeks ago at New York’s MATA Festival.

Chorale blurs the lines between real sound and synthetic reproduction. It presents a conversation between an acoustic guitar and an electric guitar, interrupted at times by ghostly quotes of Bach, making for a surreal experience for the audience at Godsbanen in Aarhus.
