Nils Bech. As a singer, composer and performance artist with a strong focus on voice, lyrics, interaction, and performative elements, Bech works with thematically and often site specific performance-concerts and concerts in the international art scene, either a cappella or together with various artists and musicians. Experimentation and interaction is emphasised through an incorporation of sculptural elements, movement and self composed songs; the objects turn into a prolongation of the essence of the song performed by Bech. A sculpture, a wall, a painting, a staircase will be catalysts for emotions that will be communicated.
