Langnau Evi and Ruth Juon give «Artconcert» in the Reformed Church:

A small outing to paradise

Luck and dream in songs and pictures:
«Artconcert» is an original art composition of two sisters for young and old.
by Sylvia Senz

Would you like a little opera, a pinch of concert, a small lieder recital, together with an exhibition in cinema atmosphere? The sisters Ruth and Evi Juon invented something special for their «Artconcert», that takes place next Sunday in the Reformed Church in Langnau. Something that speaks to all senses and feeds the anticipated joy on the up coming holiday period: an airy, playful colour orgy for the eyes, songs and a story for the ears. It is a varied «life bow» for old and young, an outing to paradise on many ways. «It shall be a paradisical, cheerful, positive evening, but also gives food for thought», promise the two artists.

A picture book in large format

First the two sisters start with their small CD picture book «Vision of paradise» – this time in large format, projected on screen and with original singing. Soprano Ruth Juon gives the voice to the picture paradise, in which she stays. For that she composed and wrote lyrics to a 14 piece song cycle in different musical styles. Evi Juon is the «composer» of the light, floating and colourful water colour paintings, which again are composed of many individual scenes. With the pictures the audience starts off on the paradise journey. Then a story breaks the outing: The «Small picture and Speech Opera Rabeschwarz und Pinkvioletta» – set to music by Ruth Juon – is also a picture book and comes from Evi Juon, which now changes place with her sister in front of the screen and narrates the «spoken song» of Pinkvioletta and her raven. In it, it goes about a sympatic, but discontented witch, which has lost the desire of doing magic. To overcome her inner emptiness, she first has to clear out her cottage. In the beginning it comes to all kinds of magic mishaps. Under it the raven has to suffer above all, and their are greedy opponents, which set against the fulfilment of the witch dream. But here more will not be betrayed. After the witch happy end the visitors continue their paradise journey.

Two artist careers

Ruth Juon studied classical voice at the Conservatory Zürich, Switzerland and pop and jazz at Berklee College of Music in Boston (USA). Since then she works as a freelance soprano, composer and lyricist. For «Vision of paradise» she sings her own music inspired by influences of barock, classic, jazz latin and pop, depending on the spirit of the song. Evi Juon did an appreticeship in graphic design and studied visual design at the University of Art and Design Zürich. Afterwards she opened her own studio. She works for different organizations and famous publishers. 1999 the two sisters Ruth Juon and Evi Juon found the publishing company «Vision of paradise». The two artists create and produce CDs, Picture books, Aquarelle Fine Art Print Pictures, the Paradise picture wall clock as well as Art cards.

Why Paradise in Music and Pictures?
The organization «Women for peace» asked Ruth Juon to write a song against the suppression of the Indians. «I agreed immediately. During the lyric work I had difficulties because I am anyway against any kind of suppression, against the suppression of women, men, children, animals, environment and so far. If I wanted to be fair, I would have had to write a song for all of them, which is impossible. What should I do? I had the idea that I should go for it the other way round, not to say «what against», but rather «what for». Then all of a sudden it got very simple. Of course I am for Paradise on earth! «Vision of Paradise» was born. Evi Juon, my sister, joined me: what could be more fascinating for a painter than to create paradisiac pictures?

Since then we dedicated all our efforts to the subject of Paradise. We began to observe moments of luck in life, and with intuition, thinking, and fantasy, searched for the paradisical ideal which was found in the song «Vision of Paradise»: Love is Paradise!

With «Vision of Paradise» we wish to contribute to a paradisiacal, peaceful, and loving world.
