Music for The Shapeshifter was made as a permanent installation with the paintings exhibition by Anya Janssen. In collaboration with writer Marjolijn van Heemstra videomaker Anneke Savert and me as a composer, Janssen creates a synergistic Gesamtkunstwerk inspired by Ivy: a twelve year old girl that lives partly detached from civilization, together with her mother.
In a small red mobile home she coexists with her animals and nature on the fringe of Dutch urbanity. The stories this girl told Janssen inspired her to create an installation piece, focusing on Ivy's way of shifting personalities between civilization and her own private universe.
The electronic music consists of the following tracks:
Nymphs of the Woods
Days Without Nights
