This is a studio version of the piece with slight differences and variations from the performed opera. In the current performed version all vocals are sung by mezzo soprano Kristina Wahlin Momme, actress Laerke Winther and pop singer Jonathan Johanson.
Originally The Knife were commissioned to make the music, but to try out a more collaborative way of working they invited Mt. Sims and Planningtorock . Not only to have a more fun and interesting process but also to capture the huge width of the theme Darwin and evolution. What we found most interesting about Darwin was his way of describing evolution in a non hierarchical way. Never using the word evolution, he instead chose to write about “variation” or “descent with modification”. Another fascinating thing when reading his journals is how necessary it was for him to not only question everything around him, but also himself in order to formulate his theories.
