In september 2015 I announced together
with Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center and GIBCA, the
Gothenburg Biennial that I was looking for stories to turn
into songs. A large amount of stories were submitted and I
chose 11 in Cincinnati and 5 in Gothenburg. After
interviewing each participant I finally locked myself in a
room with two other musicians to write and record the
songs. This is the result.
The Gothenburg songs can be found hereThe cover art was made by Malin Nordström.
Thanks to Göteborg Kulturstöd Pronto for financial help in Gothenburg and Konstnärsnämnden for financial help in Cincinnati, to GIBCA and CAC for taking on this project and helping me with the logistics. And especially to the brave participants for sharing their lives and stories!
