On the track “The fundamental tone that connects us” I added the poems “Fattig Ynskje” and “Når du er borte” by Tor Jonsson. Here are some links to his poems, some translated to english:

About Tor Jonsson:


Var eg ein Gud,
ville eg skapa
ei stillare verd.
Der skulle alle elske.

Var eg ein Gud
ville eg skapa
kjærleik og død,
berre kjærleik og død.

Were I a God
I would create
a peaceful world.
There, everyone would treasure love.

Were I a God
I would create
love and death,
only love and death.
