Solo was commissioned by the organization who for a period of time drew a fantastic underground studio, situated under the town square of Copenhagen – Rådhuspladsen – Connected to this studio was 15 independent loudspeakers allowing to perform all sorts of fantastic sound experiment at the square.
The loudspeakers were a part of the pavement, thus not visible for the audience, creating a fantastic space and soundscape in the night time.
Solo is built around a poem by Morten Søndergaard:

 

En solo river lydløst hul i himlen bagved hospitalet
hvor piger i hvide kjoler leger far, mor og børn
mens en hvid vild sol står ind ad vinduet på en rusten campingvogn
rammer filosoffens rejste lem

Simultaneous recordings of the soprano voice of Klaudia Kidon, is mixed in a surround environment which is not translatable into stereo, just be assured it was a fantastic square.
