On This Planet

Morten Ryelund, Thomas Sandberg, Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen

On This Planet er en nutidig musikforestilling et sted mellem rock og opera. En ekstatisk performance, som tager beskueren med på en rejse gennem livet fra fødsel til død. Men det er ikke nogen almindelig rejse. Med On This Planet kommer vi ind i et univers, der er ligeså absurd som David Lynchs Twin Peaks og Lars von Triers Riget. Hvor alt kan ske og intet er hvad det synes at være. Musikforestillingen On This Planet er sat i tekst og musik af komponisten Anders Nordentoft. På scenen står sanger og performer Thomas Sandberg, og Martin Tulinius fra Kaleidoskop har skabt en storslået scenografi med video, computergrafik, lyd og lys hvor genrerne blandes ligesom i musikken. Dacapos DVD-produktion er den naturlige fuldbyrdelse af den originale musikforestilling, som fandt sted i Kanonhallen i 2002. Symbiosen mellem lyd, lys og billede gør On This Planet til et moderne Gesamtkunstwerk. On This Planet er et helt nyt kunstnerisk udtryk, som egner sig perfekt til DVD-mediet. On This Planet er filmet live i Kanonhallen. DVD""""""'en indeholder desuden special features i form af links, biografier på alle medvirkende og en halv times portræt af komponisten Anders Nordentoft. Dacapo Records er stolte over at præsentere Danmarks første klassiske DVD-produktion i samarbejde med ATHELAS Sinfonietta Copenhagen, Den Anden Opera og Kaleidoskop.

No limits - anything can happen!

On This Planet is a journey through life from birth to death. But it is no ordinary journey. It has been set to text and music by the composer Anders Nordentoft, it is performed by the singer and performing artist Thomas Sandberg, and Martin Tulinius has created magnificent stage design with video, computer graphics, sound and light, where the genres are mixed just like the musical genres. Anders Nordentoft's past as a rock musician is combined with his classical training in a brand new musical universe where the concept of crossover is no longer adequate as a label. On This Planet is a new kind of artistic idiom where a symbiosis of the human voice and instrumental sound is created - a tension-filled universe that is given musical backbone by Anders Nordentoft in a mixture of rock, jazz, blues and modern composition music.

In On This Planet we are in the same universe as in Twin Peaks and Kingdom Hospital, where anything can happen and nothing is what it seems. Thomas Sandberg is well known in Danish musical life as an unusual mixture of performance artist, percussionist, rock singer, clown and soundmaker. And that was exactly what Anders Nordentoft needed in the summer of 2000 when he launched the project that was to become On This Planet, written specifically for Thomas Sandberg and ATHELAS Sinfonietta Copenhagen. At that time it was just two songs with the joint title Too Much Sand. Later the number grew to six, performed in May 2001, now with the title On This Planet. By the time of the world premiere on 20th November it was 15 songs with texts by Anders Nordentoft and the Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott.

Anders Nordentoft's life-cycle narrative starts from darkness, inspired by the painter Kurt Trampedach and his interest in shamanism - ecstatic communication between this world and the supernatural world.
