Page Turners and how everything is connected

Here is a blog about one of my current works in progress. Most of my compositions are inter-connected and via sports, crafts and field recordings I’ve entered a sonic universe where all ingredients are formulated to such abstraction it becomes hard to recognise their origins. I thought it might be interesting to take you onContinue reading “Page Turners and how everything is connected”

Folk Stories Native Soundscapes

Earlier this year I was in Helsinki for an M-cult commission about folk stories and their native soundscapes. It’s part of a larger project I’m working on in collaboration with several universities throughout Europe mapping this out per region. Sounds and Stories Live concert was for storytelling and manipulated fieldrecordings, performed by means of preparedContinue reading “Folk Stories Native Soundscapes”

Listen to Imagiro Largo music here

. Rugged wild landscapes with their hills and mountains read like music to me. The Icelandic use the work ‘fjallasyn’ to describe a distant view, especially in clear weather and from a point where you can see a big part of a highland area – a panorama with many peaks. There are two IMAGIRO worksContinue reading “Listen to Imagiro Largo music here”

Watch IMAGIRO LANDMANNALAUGAR here

IMAGIRO premieres were sensational!

 . Happy about how #IMAGIRO ‘Largo’ and ‘Landmannalaugar’ worked out. If I get the chance will be writing more in this line. It has been such a physical, intuitive and ungiving mathematical process, a very interesting challenge to match these contrasting qualities. Thank you so much for commissioning Egidija Medeksaite, the Lithuanian Composers Union and Sound and Music and Contemporary Music EnsembleContinue reading “IMAGIRO premieres were sensational!”

IMAGIRO #3 stages of development

‘IMAGIRO’ is a composition for ensemble and panoramic score, unfolding its music from a single landscape size movement into a sound sculpture like origami, whilst pacing the musicians through the concert space in a slow-motion ceremonial choreography of imaginary Olympian sprinters. For those interested, let me talk you through the many various stages of creating this work. I guessContinue reading “IMAGIRO #3 stages of development”

IMAGIRO #2 painting

I have been looking forward to painting my graphic landscape #panoramicscore for months! This is the first sketch, still a bit blocky. #IMAGIRO will be premiered by Ensemble Synaesthesis in Vilnius, Lithuania, on August 14. Commissioned for the DAR Residency, in collaboration with AiR Krems and Sound And Music. . .

‘IMAGIRO’ #1 doing the maths

Full of beans finishing my new piece #IMAGIRO. A #panoramicscore! So excited and full of wonder how this is going work visually. Unfolding music and players through the concert space in a time-lapse rally. In theory it works really simple… #brainworkout #Vilnius #premiere14aug #ensembleSynaesthesis . .

“Shakespeare and Hedgeshear” musique concrète vimeo
