A Song Inspired by The Pendulum
by Adolphson & Falk
On 27 January 1945 Allied forces liberated Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. What they discovered there and in other camps that were subsequently liberated will forever remain the heart of darkness. The question that is left to us is how do we transform our knowledge of this, both the facts and their emotional imprint, into a force powerful enough to take us toward the heart of light?
Following their reading of The Pendulum performing artists Anders Falk and Tomas Adolphson composed a moving song to help us consider this question. Lyrics in Swedish.
