New project with NUS.

This winter I will be doing a project together with Norrbottens Ungdomssymfoniker which is a youth orchestra that I used to play with in my teens. The project revolves around ideas and impressions on playing in the orchestra that the members have and will eventually result in a new piece that I will compose based on the ideas of the youths. This project will be funded by Norrbottens Läns Landsting and Föreningen Svenska Tonsättare.

‘Lento’ for 24-tone chromatic instruments and Microtonal Workshop

I’ve composed a piece for MikroEnsemble as part of a workshop on microtonal music that I will attend in early October. The piece i called ‘Lento’ and is written for 24-tone chromatic instruments (flute, clarinet, guitar, piano, acoordion) and regular violin and cello. The workshop will be held in Kuopio, Finland at this years International PASImusic Festival.

If you happen to be around, ‘Lento’ will be played on Oct. 4th at 15.00 in the Chamber Music Hall at the Kuopio Music Centre.

My participation in this event is kindly funded by Konstnärsnämnden.

More on Tetraphonia and Kompfest

The Kompfest festival got some nice reviews (although quite brief) by both national and regional newpapers. Contemporary music magazine Nutida musik wrote a more substantial review and commentary on the festival, in which Tetraphonia got a short but sweet mention.

Tetraphonia also got played at a concert in Härnösand, hosted by contemporary music society Nymus, on May the 12th. That concert also got a nice review.

 

Kompfest 2015

I’ve recently co-written a piece called ‘Tetraphonia’ together with Lisa Stenberg for the RANK Composition Festival, Kompfest (link here) that will take place in Malmö, April 17-18th. The piece is for Soprano Recorder, Bb Clarinet, Viola and Electronics and will be performed by Katarina Widell, Robert Ek, Johanna Persson and Lisa Stenberg. The festival will also be recorded by the Swedish Radio for those who can’t attend.
