URKULT 2014 – FIRE DREAMING – Aug 2014
Lee with tank men collaborators Mikael Oberg and Bjornola Lund were invited to choreograph, and design a fire ritual to open the 2014 Urkult festival in northern Sweden.
With an audience of 11 thousand, a massive sound system and a huge site it was a lot of fun/work. Over 40 performers and musicians were eventually involved and all choreography, sound design and pyrotechnic build was by Lee, Mikael and Bjornolla.
The performance involved a lot of fire, 20 school children, and many dancers/performers.
The sound design utilised many of the other sound systems on site for a truly 3 dimensional sound picture.
The sound content used many musicians as well as Lee’s tones, recordings and live sonic manipulations.
The ritual aspect of the piece invoked many fire spirits
