Espen Sommer Eide – artist/composer

Structural metaphors of western thought recited in the Vedic style



Voice artist Trine Hylander Friis interpretation of a composition by Espen Sommer Eide. The melodic structure is based on the indian Vedic recital tradition. The list of metaphors used as a “libretto” in the piece, is a system of conceptual metaphors based on Lakoff and Johnsons book "Metaphors we live by" (1980). Some would even go as far as to say they are a universal system of the way we think.
