On July 14, 2018, the famous Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman would have turned 100 years old. The anniversary was marked in style in Gothenburg's concert hall with a unique dream play that interwoven both music, video and light as a tribute to the well-known Swede, for whom music was such an important part of life.

The classical concert was created by an artistic team of i.a. directors, lighting designers and video technicians, and not least Stouenborg's own Kasper Stouenborg, who all contributed to the task with their respective skills. The combined creative efforts resulted in a unique experience that engulfed the entire room with projections of dream images, videos and sound clips related to Bergman, while the ubiquitous music was performed live by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. The same team is also behind three other concerts, the latest of which was held in Iceland in December 2018 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Iceland's independence and secession from Denmark.

Bergman was fascinated by music all his life, and his question "where does music come from?" formed the focal point of the symphony orchestra's tribute concert, which played itself into a whole new genre. It was more than just a concert, but rather a total experience that absorbed the entire room and created an intimate, temporary universe. All the time with the music as the center. While the classical music filled the concert hall, the audience was surrounded by videos from the filmmaker's home, nature photos from his surroundings, and along the way sound clips of, among other things, were played. interviews with the musicians from the orchestra.

The concert was a unique tribute to a unique person, and although we still don't know exactly where the music comes from, it is certain that it has the power to touch people deeply and shape our lives.
