CELSIUS I-III contains the three pieces specially composed for the ecumenical worship service held at the Cathedral of Copenhagen the 13th of december during the climate conference COP15. It was the first performance of the pieces.
CELSIUS I was performed to the psalm reading of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.
The theme for this piece is water. You can hear the sound of gentle sea waves, sealife and freshwater sounds.
CELSIUS II was performed to the reading of Sr. Anna Mirijam Kaschner.
The theme for this piece is the wind. You can hear the arctic wind and the gentle wind in a cornfield. I chose the wind as a symbol of what connects all human beings on this earth - the air we all breathe.
CELSIUS III was performed after the sermon by The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams.
The theme for this piece is earth, ice and stone. You can hear sounds of greenlandic stones, crackling ice, wood cracking and parts of icebergs falling into the water.
The purpose of this track was for me to give a sense of the beauty of what we have - and that the earth is suffering under our behavior. How close we are to loose it all - if we do not take action now.
