Concert

Concert: Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard

Vacuum-packed Folk High School songbooks and NemID on recorder flute. It is both contemporary and poetic when sound artist and composer Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard presents a number of his works at Copenhagen Contemporary.

 

Sing along! (you are either with us or against us)

During the corona crisis, the act of singing together has been very popular, and we have experienced how community singing on DR has been conveyed as a non-political and neutral point of view – for someone a saturated bubble of community. For others, a claustrophobic vacuum.

In that spirit, Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard will plastic-vacuum a number of folk high school songbooks, and you are invited to bring your own folk high school songbook, which Løkkegaard will vacuum in plastic. A kind of community-creating civic service.

 

Personally sensitive music (2019)

NemID is a condition to which all citizens of Denmark are subjected. Through a number of works, Løkkegaard examines the NemID key card, which on the one hand appears alienating, and on the other is one of the most personal things we carry around. Once a NemID card has been used, the key card remains as a sober testimony of actions ranging from access to parental entry, divorce to home purchase – an instrumental summary of life actions over time. Personally sensitive music is a series of works in which Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard accesses the NemID card as a score – to subsequently translate it into music in order to better understand this term.

 

The following NemID key cards will be played on recorder flutes:
Personally sensitive music – No. 1/Z074-193-875
Personally sensitive music – No. 2/Y983-173-472
Personally sensitive music – No. 3/P855-196-711
