Here and Away


Here and Away takes the
viewer on a journey to the favourite places of the original members of
defunensemble: an untouched forest, the bunkers of Taivaskallio, the
open sea, the neighborhood of Kallio, and an amusement park. The
musicians were deeply involved in every part of the creative process,
giving viewers insight into their individual personalities. Spending
time together at their favourite locations was a valuable and inspiring
creative method.

The musical composition is based on the
verbal descriptions of the musicians themselves and improvisations. We
hear the wind playing the flute by the open sea, a duet with a clarinet
and a bird in a sunny forest, a harpist imitating a rollercoaster, a
pianist depicting the sounds of his neighborhood in Kallio, and an
interpretation of the cellist’s childhood memories. The journey
culminates in the musicians returning to each of these special locations
to perform a private concert for the landscape.
