Burning Bright depicts a unique gathering of musicians from the Swedish contemporary and creative music scene, and their common voyage through a torched winter landscape. Fire! Orchestra is a collective voice of which the vocal chords are plucked individually by the members. The notes, the words, and the images are torn down to be built up again. We exit to be able to enter, as if the titles of the praised records spoke to us: first came "Exit", then "Enter". But how far inside can we go before we find ourselves exiting again?
