Peer Gynt: Utfor Stupet AlbumPurchased

Amidst mighty mountains and roaring waterfalls, the spectacular dance performance PEER GYNT: UTFOR STUPET was performed in 2012, during the annual Peer Gynt festival in Gudbrandsdalen, Norway. Based on Henrik Ibsen’s original text and a new script by director Svein Sturla Hungnes, choreographers André Danielsen and Stian Danielsen created a stunning new visual take on Peer Gynt. They were joined by composer Eirik Myhr who made the music for the hour long performance. This is the soundtrack album with Myhr’s music from the project. The soundtrack of PEER GYNT: UTFOR STUPET is quite a blend, with its symphonic foundation, melodic percussion, folkloristic aesthetics, electronic beats and avant-garde noise. The young jazz musician Magnus Bakken, whose improvisations on the saxophone and goat horn were an essential part of the play itself, also contributes on the album. All these elements somehow manage to come together as a whole, and the result is an album which knows nothing of the word «compromise». Ethereal and beautiful in one moment - offensive and ugly the next. Composer Eirik Myhr also composed the score for the play PEER GYNT: SELVETS KEISER (2013), as well as the internationally acclaimed Norwegian family films RAFIKI (2009) and THE TOUGH GUYS (2013). For the latter, Myhr was awarded the NOPA Music Award 2013, as well as film music website Reel Music’s "Best Comedy Score" award the same year. Myhr has also created theme music for numerous Norwegian television series, and played the role of a weird music producer in the Norwegian children’s series JUBALONG (2006-2008). In 2014 he is composing the music for comedian Bård Tufte Johansen’s huge standup success MANN (44), and a stunning new production of Astrid Lindgren’s timeless classic novel THE BROTHERS LIONHEART for The Norwegian Theatre.
