THE KNIFE IS WRITING AN OPERA
Danish Hotel Pro Forma has invited The Knife to write music and libretto for "Tomorrow, in a Year" a Darwin opera.
"In November 2009, it is precisely 150 years since Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, a work that describes the biological and geological world, as it has come into existence and continues to do so every single day. Our view of the world has been changed for ever as a result of the theory of evolution. Tomorrow, in a year uses Darwin’s way of observing and describing the world. Change as a process and the interrelationship of all things is the basic material of the performance."
Olof Dreijer is now at a field recordning in the Amazon to record animals, fish and plants.

Premiere will be in Copenhagen September 2009.
There is still no information whether this is going to be released as an official album or it will be just a teaser. Waiting for more news from Frau Rabid.
