A sound signals an allegorical avant-courier. Running ahead as a figurative fugue. It is a wave, just so curling. Its curvature; An arched echo. It fizzles and crackles and crepitates into a cacophony of terrene tempo. This overture weaves and waves and works itself into the collective composition. A many pieced suite. A rowing movement, an arrangement of scores. Scores sounding as substance. A subtext is a passage undulating. A variation of forms in free circulation. A speculative singular body is re-worked. Re-arranged as a condition of its disembodiment. Into the collective body and form. A narrative that culminates. A swelling volume. A mass, amassed. Sounding out the composition of delicate labour. An accompaniment of gestures and postures. The composed body. Out of several movements, released in flux. A sonata. Broken up by the occasional intermezzo. As a collective, a recital. The formation of a very large body. Intermittent ambient conditions, sounds that stammers, waves of movement. A variety of forms, performed as a series of sounds, staccato. Singular somehow. But in fact a deluge, a deafening acceleration. A crescendo.
A movement is a 10 piece suite. 5 original compositions by Sanna Helena Berger and 5 interpretations by artists Ewa Awe, Hoyah, Aline Sofie Rainer, Matilda Tjäder and Berger herself. The movement grows with the corresponding videos which score the sounds with gestures and choreography by Veronica Bruce and Karoline Bakke Lund, Efva Lilja, Shade Théret, Mikhail Baryshnikov sampled and Berger herself. Attempting to connect all 10 sounds and visuals not only by text but by interpretative actions. The original 5 piece composition topically dealt with the pause. The in-between sound, the orchestral warm-up, the audible prelude to a performance. An ode to sounds which are not the "central sound", but the unsorted sounds around and in between the centre. As a movement, these are works which do not only encompass sound. This is an album which is audible, visual and textual - A movement. Something moving, changing, pitching up and down, as an audible tempo and as a physical form. Momentum building.
