More Info:

In an album of world-premiere recordings, accordionist Bjarke Mogensen performs Martin Lohse's extraordinary Echoes off Cliffs - 'a symphony in rural surroundings'. Mogensen had long imagined performing among the dramatic cliffs of Bornholm, a Danish island in the Baltic Sea. Inspired by this concept, Lohse wrote Echoes off Cliffs for accordion, electroacoustics and six speakers, conjuring up the atmospheric reverberations of this unique landscape. Mogensen is also joined by guitarist Mikkel Egelund Nielsen for Lohse's beautiful Sort sol / Black Sun: Starling murmurations - fast moving patterns in the sky, a work commissioned by and dedicated to these artists and based on the phenomenon of starling murmurations creating sweeping masses that move in ever-changing patterns across the sky, blocking the light of the sun.
