On commission from the Norwegian choir Ensemble Dali and conductor Eirik Sørborg, the composer, Bjørn Morten Christophersen, is composing a large-scaled work for two soloists, choir, orchestra and electro acoustics. It will be premiered 2. and 3. November 2013 in Kristiansund and Ålesund. The project is supported by Arts Council Norway.
The work is in fact based on Charles Darwin: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859). For a long time the composer has filtered a number of passages that he find both beautiful and important to the understanding of evolution. The core of this work is the beauty of human knowledge through natural science.
