Emerging from Currents and Waves

Fri 31 August 2018,
7 p.m.
The Baltic Sea Festival

During the performance of Emerging from Currents and Waves, the roles of Martin Fröst and Esa-Pekka Salonen will be expanded through the use of Jesper Nordin’s invention, the Gestrument (Gesture Instrument), a digital composition tool and motion-based instrument. In addition to being the soloist and conductor respectively, they will control the virtual orchestra and the interactive lighting installation that is suspended above the stage. Using advanced technology and stage design, everything that happens electronically is visualized in real time.
