The opening concert LYD // LYS at this year's STRØM Festival is going to be quite different from anything else you have ever seen. With help from composers Jacob Eriksen and Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen and light designer Jakob Kvist Hansen, a three-storied building will be changed into one big playground for twenty-four musicians. Here the facades will come to life as the electronic beat and classical Steve Reich-inspired notes pour out of every crack and window and fill the streets with tight and powerful tones.
The music and visuals are custom made for this event and will only be performed this once. So leave everything behind on this Monday night and let yourself get carried away by an overwhelming and experimental concert. The concert will also feature an opening set by Bjørn Svin – one of the most prolific electronic producers of Denmark.
Jacob Eriksen, Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen, Jakob Kvist Hansen and more, Bjørn Svin
