three_four_maybe (2020-2021)

3 performers: midi controllers, grand piano, solenoids & light

New piece comissioned by NEKO3 . The starting point of this piece was to extend and develop some ideas that were found on YES FOR NO , the orchestral piece which also featured NEKO3 as soloists. “three_four_maybe” focuses sonically on the grand piano, which is played remotely by the three performers using midi controllers. The piano is prepared with 24 solenoids (DC-controlled motors) that turn it into a small mechanical ensemble, featuring plucked string sounds, percussive hits and even some sort of “acoustic pulse-width synthesis", in which the sound from the motors themselves is amplified by the piano resonance. The controllers become macro-instruments which control not only the sound but also 3 LED panels that display text, a material that is used as yet another compositional parameter in the piece.

The premiere was first scheduled for December 2020, but it has been since pushed because of COVID-19 restrictions. According to the current plan it will be premiered on the 30th of May 2021 at Klang Festival in Copenhagen, with further performances in Aarhus, Bern and Basel. See the calendar for the latest updates.

Full score, recordings etc. coming soon.

2x2 (2020)

2 performers: 2 instruments, midi pedals and live electronics

Comissioned by Christian Tschening Larsen and Jason Alder. The piece takes the track “four_part_drone” from my “Refshaleøen Tapes vol. I” album as a starting point for a new work where two musicians expand the sound of their instruments with midi pedals that control the live-electronics patch. While the first version of this piece is performed on bass clarinet and trombone, it is scored for “any two instruments capable of playing a middle C with different dynamics and timbre over time”.

YES FOR NO (2019-2020)

for symphony orchestra, 3 soloists, live-electronics and light

This piece was created as a part of my post-graduate studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, in a workshop with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. I turned the invitation to write an orchestral piece into writing a “triple concerto” of sorts with NEKO3, to whom the piece is dedicated.

YES FOR NO was premiered on the 5th of March, 2020, one week before Denmark went into lockdown due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The score is available from Edition-S. 
A reduced version for large ensemble (25 musicians) instead of Symphony Orchestra is in the works and will be presented on August, 9 2021 at the UNM (Young Nordic Music) festival in Aarhus, Denmark.
