A banshee is a mythical figure that heralds death, destruction and grief with a shrill scream and powerful voice. This is the starting point for the Danish saxophonist Signe Emmeluth's commissioned piece, which was premiered at Vossa jazz in 2022.

Together with a star team of Norwegian musicians, Emmeluth has created a work in which powerful and clear voices are intertwined. She herself describes Banshee as a "fearless tale of presence and moments": - The Banshee figure is not necessarily intended as something frightening and horrifying, but rather a way to come into contact with time that flies by.
