Toxic Skies Orchestra
Music performed with the Athana trio, plus guest Werner Cee from Frankfürt, who´s playing the most intriguing selfmade instrument, based on a chinese ancient stringed piece of wood, heavily processed. After a month in Stavanger, working on new material, this will be performed.
Werner is also to be heard on Athana´s latest album “Paviljon”, and Athana is contributing on the German release “Wetterlauten” this autumn, plus in special radioprograms made by Werner, for the German radio.
After working with Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and Stewart Copeland spring 2013, this is the next project, before we start a new round next year (2015) with Copeland.
Fredrik is doing some special visuals, with his dark trademark, to understate the music going on…(his work is now all over the shortfilm festivals, from US to Estland..)
Werner has funding from the Goethe Institute covering the stay in Stavanger.
