New brilliant commission work from Annbjørg!
People have always felt the need to go to sea, to be on their way somewhere, and to let the power of the sea float them towards familiar landscapes. Melodies and stories come with us on board. Some people never come home. The fire burns for them on land. Peace is found on the pebbled beach.
“Drifting like a bird” is a CD version of a commissioned work I composed for the North Sea Festival in Farsund in 2013, about life at sea and on land around the North Sea Basin. I am grateful to those of you who have shared your personal sailing stories with me in the late hours of the night – about openness, friendship, madness, longing and love.- Annbjørg
