Tuomo Haapala and the Ultimate Angels

I particularly enjoy using electronically manipulated theremin and voice—and occasional balloon—for live improvisation. A further example of this is Tuomo Haapala's piece De yttersta änglarna (The Ultimate Angels). Tuomo Haapala on percussion, the Uppsala Academic Choir led by Stefan Parkman and I performed this piece twice, in Sigtuna and in Uppsala in November 2002, along with a lot of other material. To quote one reviewer: "With the help of a theremin, a type of electronic instrument brilliantly played by Girilal Baars, they created soundscapes which transported the listener to a magical world."
