What Noises Remains is an evening-length piece for percussion, electroacoustic sound, text, and video. Composer Peter V. Swendsen and percussionist Jennifer Torrence take as their starting point Shakespeare’s iconic play, The Tempest, to create a collaborative piece that is part archeological dig, part musical narrative...an expression of confinement, control, and ultimately, wonder.
What Noises Remain is commissioned by Jennifer Torrence and funded by the Arts Council Norway; Research & Development is funded by the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme and the Norwegian Academy of Music.
