Elina Pirinen: Brume de Mer

”The forest falls in their ears and their mouths drown into colors.
They go to the wet mountains, kind gods, evil flowers.”

Brume de Mer is a corporal and vocal sonata painted by Elina Pirinen and her workgroup. It consists of the sheer volume produced by the combined abstraction of psycho-neurologically rich and emotional ring dance, a lyrical field sung in a peculiar manner, scents, intoxicating visions of duration and organ music that accumulates in the soul.

Brume de Mer fumbles for, deforms and reforms new expressions for desire, obsession, mutism, killing and intuition in an extremely physical way. The sonant stage consist of a tremendous original organ composition, which has eaten alive the Sonata no. 2 for Organ by Russian composer Viktor Suslin.

The performance is a self-standing instalment of Pirinen's series of works based on Russian compositions. For the artists of the workgroup, Brume de Mer is a delightful and novel comeback.
