a sound and video installation for four coloratura sopranos about voices and identities
"Intellectually stimulating and teasingly funny art of our time."
"This three-hour, precisely timed sound structure is a confusing, constantly moving deconstruction of language, voice and sound. […] The bizarre fascination that the spectacle has created will not get out of your head so quickly."
"Voice Box was full of tongue in cheek [...] that allowed the audience to fully join in."
"The avant-garde business trip to the green creates a situational border experience with a feel-good program."
"The audience […] experiences an masterfull musical performance, which is then deconstructed in an irritating sequence of events at different locations in a deliberately bizarre manner."
"Delightful and playful experimental opera from young Finnish composer"
"The most enthusiastic reception got 'ettette' by Miika Hyytiäinen"
"Genuinely avantgardistic German music theatre."
"Musically the performance is excellent."
Pierrot lunaire und drei Schattenträume
Pierrot lunaire und drei Schattenträume combines Arnold Schöberg’s modern master piece to my music. The music was directed by Jaakko Nousiainen into a one hour music theatre piece. The text was a dream diary of soprano Annika Fuhrmann who also sang the solo part. Katariina Nyberg was the produced of the Tokyo performance.
