Ensemble Allegria: Premiere of new commission

The chamber orchestra Ensemble Allegria will premiere a new piece by me during their concert series NÅ (NOW). Also on the program is 2 of J. S. Bach’s keyboard concertos, with the great Ingrid Andsnes as soloist.

Working title on the piece is “warm. Swarm” - and will continue my investigation of “musical flocking”.

OsloBiennalen: Opening of OSV (Jan Freuchen, Jonas Major & Sigurd Tenningen)

OsloBiennalen: Opening of OSV (Jan Freuchen, Jonas Major & Sigurd Tenningen)

I was asked to create music for the opening of a specially curated sculpture park, consisting of art pieces from Oslo County’s collection. The sculptures where all animal related, which was in some sense reflected in music. I played electronics, and conducted 3 trumpet players by sound cues. The performers were Eivind Lønning, Torstein Lavik Larsen and Thomas Johansson.

OsloBiennalen: Pre-premiere of "Kraftbalanse" ("Power Balance") at the City Hall

Øystein Wyller Oddens sound art piece, “Kraftbalanse”, has a pre-premiere at the opening reception of the first OsloBiennale. I’ve been working quite a lot with Øystein on this, composing a piece for 5 or 8 strings, and resonating piano. Very happy to be part of this, which - beside being recorded - will have it’s real premiere during the Ultima Festival in September. The performers are from the great chamber orchestra Allegria.

I will also work with the whole ensemble on a commissioned work later this year.
