THERE MIGHT BE HOPE IN THE FUTURE THAT YOU ARE UNAWARE OF (J.ABEL)
Composer and piano player Jon Balke joined Små Grå on this project in their 2nd year of Master studies at the Norwegian Music Academy. The title is taken from a poem written on a wall during lock down in Oslo, in March 2020, photographed by Jannik Abel.
Små Grå and Balke both brought compositions and ideas to a work shop in June. In august they all met again, and during 3 more days of rehearsing, the content was ready. The concert became a mixed performance with written music, improvisations and movement woven together.
Some of the compositions Små Grå made for this project also became part of the recording they did the following month.
Go to "Media" and check out some videos from the performance.
