With upcoming album Elevation Susanna takes her artistic work and approach a huge step further. Where previous releases have consisted of various traditional collaborations with a number of musicians and artists, she is now debuting as a curator in her own project Elevation.
Baudelaire & Piano, which originally was a solo album, became a concert performance including textile scenography, music composed for and played on tape recorders, lights and video. This whole experience inspired Susanna to new ways of working, and on the follow-up to Baudelaire & Piano she has invited Stina Stjern and Delphine Dora to compose and play music in dialogue with her own Baudelaire-songs. The new album is in fact a musical interplay between Susanna, her fellow Norwegian Stina Stjern and the French Delphine Dora, curated and produced by Susanna.
Second single ‘Rose-Pale Dawn’ is composed and played by Stina Stjern, directly led out by and based on both Susanna’s and Delphine Dora’s interpretations of Baudelaire’s poetry. The title is from the poem The Spiritual Dawn.
