Okänt land (eng. Land of the Unknown) is the result from a close cooperation between Micaela Hoppe and the film maker Evelyn Frankel.


Land of the Unknown is an art video installation, looping on three screens. 


The installation was partly financed by Region Värmland as an innovative project.

The film above is made later on in a version with the three video projections set up on the factory area where the film was shot. 


The music in Land of the Unknown is based on "Till klarhet" (eng. Insight) which was originally written for live preformance with three full size movie screens surrounding the orchestra.

 A cykle of five songs was premiered in Gothenburg...

"Kärlekssånger" (Love songs) is a private initiative from the lyricist Göran Hellekant. For a long time he wanted to have some of his own poetry set to music and was waiting for the right composer. When he heard music by Micaela Hoppe on the radio station P2, he contacted her right away.


The result is five songs for mezzo-soprano, baritone och and symphony orchestra. A story told in a cykle of five songs. Or five separate music pieces, if you like. 

2014:

The italian top orchestra

I Solisti Veneti premiered 

"Blue mountains shimmer in backlight"

The music (the orchestra version) was chosen by I Solisti Veneti out of 140 different contributions from all over the world.

An extraordinary piece for the ladies choire

The music "Vid randen" (At the border)  is written for the ladies choire and the text is a kind of mystery. Some people were fascinated, others thought it was incomprehensible.

Review in Norrbottens-kuriren 2010-10-11 about "In a time of mysteries":

 "The music piece and the composer was a nice acquaintanceship. With a traditional musical language she makes the music naturally flow into new ideas, one after the other. It is like the inner context of the music makes the piece stick togeteher. Fascinating!"

In the video Terra incognita to the right a part from "Insight" could be heard with Johnny Hedlund. 

Review in DalaDemokraten

2009-05-25:

"The music by Micaela Hoppe is expressive and emotionally strong. It is rare to hear new compositions with such a strong melodic line as this. The instrumentation is made in a confident way. There is a nice contrast between the orchestra repeating the sound as a kind of motor and the free soloist."

'Terra incognita' is the latin expression for 'land of the unknown'. It was written back in the days on old, hand drawn maps describing undetected areas.

"Ocean" premiered

Music written for the big

symphony orchestra

Conductor Toomas Kapten

"Hav" (Ocean) was composed by Micaela Hoppe for Bergslagen Chamber Symphonics as she was chosen composer in residence by the orchestra.

Review in Nya Ludvika Tidning

2008-07-21:

"The music piece reflects the different characters of the ocean. It is traditionally notated in the score and there is a stable pulse throughout the different parts. Some times the sound is very traditional, just to turn modern the very next second. The music piece is really interesting in many ways and I find myself thinking of how this could be marketed so that other symphony orchestras could get the opportunity to play it. 


The calm parts reflects the peacefulnes of a tranquil ocean, while the more intensive parts on the other hand are stormy and powerful. The waves seem to move fast and strong towards the rocks and the orchestra is really successful in creating the right atmosphere."
