'The Ballad of Agnete and The Merman' is based on a supernatural Scandinavian folk ballad. It was originally commissioned by the Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017, under its "ReThink" theme. Software controlled sound, light and live choreographic performance reframed scenes from the old ballad, as a modern, immersive and immediate music experience. The staged version used a 24 channel system of Funktion-1 speakers and ran for four nights and was well received by all who attended.

A parallel film project was shot on the set and edited by Canadian AV artists Tanya Goehring and Trevor Jacobson aka The Automatic Message. The cinematic version aims to mediate the experience of the immersive staging for a wider audience.

The music score of the film (available here) is an adaptation of the original live score, recomposed and mixed entirely in High Order Ambisonics at Notam Studio Sirius in Oslo.

The ambisonic mixdown process has generated an exceptionally deep spatial sound stage in normal stereo.

An immersive Binaural 3D version for headphone listening is also available.
