The process of the project:
In the spring of 2016 Lisbeth Simonsen sees Ulla Kobberup Brosbøl’s watercolours at an art exhibition/easter show at ”Artsociety Limfjorden”. Lisbeth, a composer of a number of songs, has a dream of releasing these, and contacts Ulla. After several meetings the project becomes a reality, it develops all the time. First of all the recording of the songs with 12 local performers. After that the historical perspective of the places, 12 local residents’ use of the localities and the translations of the info into english and german.
To cover all expenses for the extensive project with lots of participants, we contacted 150 local shops and businesses in the area. We have had a lot of support and encouragement, and at the time of writing advanced bookings of 650 calendars. Many thanks to all who have helped us one way or another.
The profit from the sale of calendars is intended to go to either a sound project or a sculpture in Struer – the town of sound. Hopefully this will be possible for the enjoyment of local people as well as residents from the rest of Denmark and abroad.
Thank you to everyone who has made this project possible.
