About ROOMS & RITUALS:
Norways leading sound designer Asle Karstad has exclusively developed and designed the effect controller ”Maccatrol” for the ensemble: a small wireless box carried on the body, enabling each singer to move freely, individually processing themselves in the room, using effects and loops. The singers perform within a surround setup, sharing space with the audience and breaking down the barrier of the conventional stage setting. This gives the audience a unique listening experience.
Trondheim Voices´ newest album “Rooms & Rituals» – is just released world wide to stunning international reviews. All the music is improvised and recorded live with no overdubs. The voices are the only sound source – with live electronic processing through our exclusively designed effect controllers «Maccatrols” by Asle Karstad. The album is a clear example of how Trondheim Voices+Asle Karstad sounds live in concert.
