Terje Isungset: Sildrande.


About the work Sildrande:

The meaning of the word ‘Sildrandre’ is trickling.

Sildrandre might take form as water that never stops trickling, moving like the flow of energy through the creation of art and music. Always changing directions and always developing - Sildrandre energy that merges art and music into nature itself.

Musical energy may have deeper meaning too, like Sildrandre slowing with a lack of water, stalled in polluted water or flowing too with too much water. Across millennia, this planet has always retained the same water, it should be cherished and treated carefully.

We do need nature. Nature does not need us.
