‘Medieval Dreams’ composed by Lubomir Grzelak is a collection of thirteen pieces transcribed from anonymous neumatic notation into hardcore digital instrumentation. The material is intended for performances in castles, palaces, and other venues of this sort. Artificial sounds breathe fresh air (pneuma) into olden signs (neuma) – we can hear references to club music, period instruments, and computer-generated vocals.

What can ‘Medieval Dreams’ become in the Humboldt Forum? It only seems natural to draw inspiration from the work of one of its patrons, Alexander. His travel diaries contain vivid descriptions of the soundscapes of non-human nature and a world completely alien to him, the cultures of South American Indigenous people as they were being altered, we can easily hear how colonialism was changing the sounds of the world.
