The concept of SEASONS was initiated by Stormglas and with the full quintet ensemble, comprising top of the line musicians, it has toured in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Faroe Islands for a couple of years.
In 2016 the concept was further developed into a sound installation “OFF SEASONS” (together with the stellar Finnish artist Hans Rosenström), which was included as a “Special Project” in the prestigious CHART Art Fair in Copenhagen alongside works by e.g. Brian Eno and Bjarke Ingels Group.
“OFF SEASONS” was later bought by Espoo Museum of Modern Art in Finland where it was unveiled in August 2017 at the same time as the official release of the music album ”SEASONS – contemporary music from a Nordic climate”
