A little voice makes its way through silence
A SONG CYCLE is a group of art songs all by the same poet and composer and having a unifying subject or storyline. Carman Moore and Lotte Arnsbjerg began improvising songs together. What they recorded astounded them both. During a period of a year 50 totally-improvised pieces of first-rate quality was the result, all seemingly called into being by the voice of a little girl, who as an adult wants to tell a story that had been hidden througout many years. Words and music have magically not been changed since the period of improvisations. Written down and with evocative visual background projections and solo dance added, the full form of GIRL OF DIAMOND MOUNTAIN emerged as an innovation of the song-cycle form ready to be performed around the world.
