”Soils and trees with no snails and leaves
Snails and leaves with no past dreams  

Shores, Meadows, Mountains, Flood.
Spleens, Lungs, Livers, Glow.”

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 ring dance, lyrical field sung with peculiar beauty, scents, intoxicating colors and organ music that accumulates in the soul.

Brume de Mer fumbles for, deforms and reforms ancient and new expressions for desire, obsession, mutism, killing and intuition in an extremely physical way. The body comes out from the body and shares its power with you.

The sonant stage consist of a tremendous original organ composition made by Ville Kabrell, which has eaten alive the original idea of using Sonata no. 2 for Organ by Russian modernist 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.
