PALLE WINDFELDT AND SILLE GRØNBERG, artists-in-residence
Our project was to create, compose and record a
CD with sounds, music and atmosphere of Bali in a mix with our own
Being artists-in-residence at Purnati was the most inspiring beginning
for the project, as the spirit of the place and the environment
invited us to go deeper into the early process of making music.
Everywhere we experienced beautiful spaces and open-minded people,
and all of the Purnati staff was very kind and happy to help connect
us with the right local musicians. Being able to wake up early morning
and be in a paradise, surrounded by butterflies and birds singing,
were simply the best gift creative artists can receive. The Balinese
ways of making art and performance is quite different from our ideas
and that in itself was continually inspiring.
Other very fruitful meetings were with the other artists who stayed
at Punati. We spent long hours in conversations about philosophy,
art and networking. In a very concrete way we met Jan Tyniec, who
will now make the photographs and cover art for our new CD. While
back in our Copenhagen studio we will finalize our recordings and
hope to release our CD next year.
We are certain to return, sooner or later, to Purnati and to Bali.
