CONCERTO GROTTO 

 

As a musician and composer, Kristian Blak has featured on a variety of jazz releases.

 

During the last few years, Birgir Enni, skipper of the vessel "Norðlýsid," and Kristian Blak have arranged trips with musicians and audiences to caves, into which - weather permitting - one can enter in smaller boats, utilizing the natural sounds and unique acoustics of the caves as integral parts of the music.

 

These concerts have taken place in collaboration with the festival Summartónar, which brings visiting musicians in additional to local performes into these unique Faroese concert halls.

Anybody Home?

"Anybody Home?" by John Tchicai, released in 2001. John Tchicai composed "Hulemusik" – translated: "Cave Music" – for a concert in the cave of Klæmintsgjógv. In addition to this suite, additional works were created for this concert on June 26th, 2000, recorded here.
