Created by maverick composers Diego Minciacchi (Italy) and James Clapperton (Norway/Scotland),  Sound-Light Constructs is about extremes: the winter darkness and the midnight sun, the beauty and the cruelty of nature, and the fine line between solitude and isolation. From neurological inquiry, to diary entries by arctic concentration camp prisoners, Sound-Light Constructs illustrates life in the north like you’ve never heard before. 

Sound-Light Constructs is commissioned by AJO ensemble through the support of the Arts Council Norway. Sound-Light Constructs is presented in cooperation with GAMO Artistic Direction, Italy.
