Inheritors is a new film installation by British/Canadian artist fimmakers Webb-Ellis. It will feature an immersive soundtrack by Sven. The installation will be shown from today in London at Siobhan Davies Studios, presented as part of the on-going Traces Commission visual arts programme. Inheritors is contemplating coexistence in the contemporary world. Set on the motorways of Britain and Europe, the film takes this ubiquitous landscape as a space from which to question deeply held myths relating to human-beings and evolution.
Today sees the premiere of Sven's recent composition for electronics and 4 celli. The work has been a commission by Lithuanian dance company Padi Dapi Fish and is a new production of the fairy tale Peter Pan for contemporary dance, choreographed by Lithuanian artist Agnija Seiko.

Sven just premiered new stage music at DNT Deutsches National Theater in Weimar: Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's Nathan the Wise is another collaboration with director Hasko Weber and stage designer Thilo Reuther.
The classic play, more relevant than ever, received enthusiastic reviews after its premiere last week.
