MEMNON – Sound Portrait of Ibsen Charachters
The Ibsen museum in Oslo asked the vocal performer Ruth Wilhelmine Meyer and the jazzpianist Helge Lien to do a Ibsen based concert, and they answered the question, by making non verbal sound portraits of some of the most important of Henrik Ibsens figures. The project was recorded in 2012 and had international release in 2013. They have been touring in Norway, Sweden, Germany and India.
