DRENGEBLå / SANGE FRA I DAG
Aske Zidore, Anders Lauge Meldgaard / Denmark / 2022 / 30 min / World Premiere
‘Drengeblå / Sange fra i dag’ is an installation and song cycle by Aske Zidore and Anders Lauge Meldgaard revolving around the theme of economy as a life form and language.
In the installation ‘Drengeblå’ (‘Boyishblue’), the audience can sit down on a realtered church bench and listen to the song cycle ’Sange fra I dag’ (‘Songs from today’). Composed by Aske Zidore and Anders Lauge Meldgaard on a set of rules and logics between the two composers, the songs appear in an ever changing form. The lyrics, written by Ida Zidore, poetically deals with economy as a universal language in an attempt to merge the human experience with the world of finance. The nonlinear songs are presented through a custom designed music player and performed by singers from The Danish Boys’ Choir.Writer: Ida Zidore
