Studio Acusticum residence 2023
Siri Karlsson has been granted residency at Studio Acusticum in Piteå 2023 by the Swedish Arts Grant Committee. We look forward to collaborating with Dans i Nord.
Aurora Sirialis is a new piece by Siri Karlsson that departs from the search and experience of Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis. In 2022 Siri Karlsson visited STF Abisko Turiststation and Aurora Sky Station, said to be the best places on earth to experience Northern Lights due to its unusual geographic location exceptionally high frequency of cloud-free nights. They visited the Swedish Institute of Space Physics outside Kiruna to learn about Norther Lights, infra sound and the JUICE expedition to Jupiter’s moons. They went down into the LKAB mine to get deeper into planet Earth. Thereafter Siri Karlsson started composing. Siri Karlsson often works with imaginary images in their creation processes. This time the experience and images came first. The music has developed organically, allowing for associations of the experiences of the field trip. The work has extended over almost one year, in periods, and has finally been arranged for a setting that was pre-determined.
