SONaR - A celestial sonic world of harps, strings and angels. Composed and performed specially for the surround sound format.

vere meininga – concerto for harp and strings
det var mjukt – for soprano and harp
dette blanke no – concerto for harp and angels

"SONaR is a sound signal sent out to create an echo from whatever it may encounter and thus reveal the unknown. I think we all send our symbolic sonars into physical and spiritual space, in a constant search for meaning. At least I do. And my life and music represent both this child's sonars and the universe's ever-unfolding answer." - Magnar Åm

"The music is insistent, powerful and existential, bringing out the dramatic qualities of the instrument. In the cadenza the electric harp with all its effects carries on a dialogue with its acoustic counterpart, as if the new and the ancient world were melting together; a Mongolian shepherd's song winds its way between the strings." - Ellen Sejersted Bødtker
