“My restless, mercurial soul
traverses the dark waters staggering,
sometimes skimming the surface,
sometimes touching the seabed.
It glances around lowly like a newborn birch tree.
Human figure, touch – physical or mental –
and its absence
create impressions that make us think,
make us identify,
make us draw conclusions.
A grotesque dance filled with backbeats conjures forth emotion in the musical medley of life
where I lie, longing.
To you, my love. Greetings from the no-man’s-land between love and fear.
Poem: Linda Suolahti
The programme of the concert is a depiction of estranged souls that wander in parallel through a life coloured by feelings of love and fear and by utter uncertainty. It is up to the listener to decide who these wanderers are. The moods are jarring and violent, yet the pieces also contain a deep solace, beautiful memories and stories of a shared past. These lend the strength to continue. The music is very earthy, and for all its technical complexity it is thus accessible and compelling.
