The Knife with Mt. Sims - Tomorrow In A Year Out Now!
The Knife, in collaboration with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock - 'Tomorrow, In A Year', is now available to buy directly from the Rabid Records store below as a download or pre-order a CD copy and receive the download instantly.
The Knife, Karin’s project with bother Olof, are to release the studio version of the opera ‘Tomorrow, In A Year’, in collaboration with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock, on the 1st March 2010
Commissioned by Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma to write the music for their opera based on Charles Darwin and his book ‘On the Origin of the Species’, The Knife decided to make this a collaborative process, working with artists Mt. Sims and Planningtorock for the first time, to capture the huge width of the Darwin and evolution theme. They extensively researched Darwin related literature and articles, with Olof attending a field recording workshop in the Amazon to find inspiration and to record sounds.
The first track from the album, called Colouring Of Pigeons, is free to download from the knife’s website here. You can also sign up for more news about The Knife there.
