Wu Xing: Earth
Jens Hedman, and Eva Sidén
2 February 2018 - 7 February 2018
Sidén Hedman duo was founded in 2010. They are one of the most interesting ensembles in the artistic field of creating and performing new music in Sweden. The audiovisual concert installation is the third in a series of 5 works on the theme “Wu Xing - The Five Elements” in Chines philosophy. The starting point is sound and video recorded during a WAAW residence in Saint Louis, Senegal, during February 2017. The project blends traditional Senegalese music and dance with Western contemporary music. Color, shape, rhythm and motion are key building blocks.
