Harvest (2009) For Terrafon, Traditional Music Ensemble and Cropland

Harvest by Alunda Kyrkokör (2009) On Vimeo

In this performance Alunda Church Choir, conducted by Cantor Jan Hällgren, plays the soil of northern Uppland (in Sweden). Harvest by Alunda Kyrkokör was exhibited at the Volt Festival in Uppsala the 6th of June 2009. Terrafon is large agricultural version of the horn gramophone, amplifying the sounds in the track it ploughs.

There is more to come. There are still many croplands still untouched by terrafon. The only thing needed is a powerful local musical ensemble that can sweat it out. This is indeed a demanding piece.


The idea is to record new performances – with new ensembles and local cropland – when we show the piece in the future.
