12th January 2010
Strange News by Rolf Wallin has been performed to capacity audiences since its 2007 premiere as a multi-media orchestral work and subsequent chamber work . Described by the press as ‘a War Requiem for the modern day’, the work in its subject matter and format offers a number of outlets for performance. In order to help future programmers with technical requirements, background to the work, helpful contacts etc, Wallin has just launched a website, www.strange-news.info . Please visit this for a complete overview of this extraordinary and powerful work.
In Strange News, Wallin presents a graphic, gripping commentary on the use of ‘child soldiers’. Through live multi-media performance, orchestra, a young African actor, video-projection and surround sound system, this vivid work never fails to leave the audience moved and on their feet in ovation.
