This year marks Hallströms workshops 100 years, and it should be celebrated with music. A custom metal concert to be precise.
The percussionist Petter Berndalen has been commissioned to write a work for the company’s Fall Jubilee. The instruments will consist of products and materials available in the workshop. Ventilation ducts, fittings and pieces of sheet metal, in various sizes, thicknesses and dimensions.
– On September 13, I and four workers from Hallströms convey concert together on a stage in the workshop. It will be great! says Petter Berndalen, which is used to going outside the musical framework and explore alternative instruments.
In his work, Northern Lights, he created such an amazing sound by making use of 21 handmade lights from the Kingdom of Crystal in Småland. Concert first performed at Småland Culture two years ago.
– Rhythm is something original and therefore percussion music usually genrelös. It’s so awesome, says Petter Berndalen.
