Liminality is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a journey between what was before and what comes after. It is a time in which we soak in a state of uncertainty.
Liminalstat is a song that contemplates on the experience of isolation and silence that occurred during the national lock down in Denmark due to COVID-19, and includes field recordings from Copenhagen Central Train Station recorded in the very beginning of the danish national lock down in March 2020.
The title is a reference to the danish term ‘minimalstat’ (night-watchman state), which is a form of government where nearly all governmental functions, including the healthcare system, are privatized.

Composed in 2020
