Die logik der Engel: Himmelsleiter

Film: "Die Logik der Engel: Himmelsleiter"

Seven contemporary composers were invited to write short vocal pieces for the project The Logic of Angels. The NOVA vocal ensemble recorded these pieces at the ORF studio, augmenting them with music from the 13th and14th centuries. These recordings constitute the sound material for the installation.

Peder Mannerfelt war einer jener Musiker/innen, die im Rahmen unseres Shape Show Case beim diesjährigen Mutek Festival aufgetreten sind.

Höhenrausch 2016 - Sujet

musikprotokoll @ Höhenrausch 2016

Angels are generally regarded as ambivalent "in-between beings" that do not really belong to any world, neither the world of ghosts and gods, nor the world of living beings. They are charged with different meanings depending on the cultural sphere - they appear as protectors as well as guards and soldiers, cosmic craftsmen and civil servants of heaven, as journey companions and messengers.
