    More about Asle Karstad

    Eirik Hegdal, Asle Karstad and Trondheim Voices won The Hedda Award 2014 in the best audiovisual design category for their music and sound design for Hundre Hemmeligheter* (One Hundred Secrets) by Anne Marit Sæther, directed by Kjersti Haugen and Anne Marit Sæther, produced by Cirka Teater, Trøndelag Theatre, The Norwegian Touring Theatre and Trondheim Voices/the jazz centre Midtnorsk Jazzsenter.

    The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

    "In a performance in which the special emphasis is on the sensuous, musical and experience-rich, it is obvious that music, sound and the performance of songs are to play on the same team as the narrative and visual and to contribute to a totality. But it is not often that we get to experience such an innovative and at the same time as successful solution as represented by this year's award winner.

    Newly written music performed by five singers who almost become part of the stage design, and who with their voices and individual sound controls improvise and manipulate a musical backdrop in real time, contribute to making this performance a sensuous experience among the rarest.

    This year's best audiovisual design award goes to Eirik Hegdal, Asle Karstad and Trondheim Voices."

    The same production won The Hedda Award 2014 in the best production for children and youth category.
