The Silence of the Shadows – Mosaic of a Search


Program Booklet: The Silence of the Shadows

Poetry & Contemporary Music

The artwork, which have been produced in several granted Artist-in-Residencies (France, Sweden, Switzerland), has been published as Poetry book and extracts from it as a literary-musical Audio CD by publisher Baltrum Verlag Haßloch/Germany in June 2020.

In the accompanying booklet of the CD the recited poems are printed in German, as well as in Swedish and English translations.

The aim of the two artists was to give a voice to people on whom a shadow lies (emotionally/socially) – with the means of their art.
Furthermore, they would like to render tangible the connection between humans and nature. Because:
there is no life without nature. Nature gives us an external and internal sense of belonging and harbours healing powers.

Encouragement by the Swedish Royal House

The duo TonSBrief Schwedisches Königshausatz presented its ongoing project to Her Majesty and patron of the German-Swedish Society, Queen Silvia of Sweden.

In the course of this, the artists were given a great honour because they were explicitly encouraged in their undertakings.

Quote Swedish Royal House (the letter was written in German):
„Ihre Majestät ist von Ihrer Arbeit sehr beeindruckt und wünscht Ihnen weiterhin viel Erfolg.“

"Your Majesty is very impressed by your work and wishes you continued success."
