Breton Cassette release # 036
En Caul cassette edition by Pernille Meidell
One year ago I was invited to collaborate with visual art colleague Malin Bulow; to compose music for her upcoming dance piece En Caul at Rosendal Teater May 5 th 2023.
A warm congratulation to both Malin and Marie for the a wonderful performance at Rosendal Teater <3
The original piece for the performance is 60 minutes divided into 5 chapters. En Caul cassette edition is shortened to 45 minutes to be able to fit on the cassette format.
The compositions are slowly developed, with repetition as a basic element in the melodic chapters.
Slowly shifted movements, monotone & muted- an audible translation of fluidity and shifting weight in the dancers body are leading elements in the 5 compositions.
Thank you to both Malin and Marie for giving me the opportunity to be part of your project- and for the trust in my music.

“En Caul is like a dazzlingly lit geometric lung that breathes in time with the performer's movements. This is a performance that examines the individual body, and becomes a projection of the human psyche – an existential deep dive where muscles, tendons and skin become carriers of internal contradictions and tension”
