Sofie talks about the work
– As a 9 year old I found Karin Boye in my mother’s bookshelf and did set music to a couple of her poems. After a resting period of thirty years, while working with other poets such as Dan Anderson, Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath, this summer lots of great reminders of Karin bumped into my face. By mistake I had my hair cut short due to language confusion in Florens. Suddenly my appearance was very like Karin Boye who had her hair this way in the twenties. Later on, in Sweden, people started to talk about her all the time…and at last the message was delivered so I decided to open her poetry book again and when I did many of the songs on the record came in an half an hour. Thank you, Karin!
The songs are recorded in Gothenburg where Karin Boye was born 1900. The Release Tour will be in her places: Gothenbourg, Huddinge (suburb to Stockholm) and in Alingsås where she died 1941 leaning towards a tree.
