Mirage (1996)

is music for an imaginary dancer. His dance is concealed in the sounds of the instruments and the reflections thrown back by the computer through the loudspeakers. A mirage for all those who on and off loose their foothold in pursuit of a solid form. Groping about, the dancer searches for a direction, a structure seemingly materialising in rhythms and leaps, only to vanish in the next moment. All that is solid……Music runs by, leaving fleeting traces in the membranes of memory. A mirage for the ear. The dancer moves towards the illusive goal of reaching the absolute balance of movement. And then to terminate, without ceasing. I catch a last glimpse of him just before the lights goes out in the hall...

It was premiered in Oslo during the Ultima Festival 1996 and has since been performed in Holland, Ireland, Norway and Sweden.Mirage was recorded by Cikada and put on their CD released in 1996.Conductor Christian Eggen & Roland Klüttig
