Absorb, Alter and Dissolve

2011 October 01

Jazz trio I. On Archaic ground II. New and inherited patterns III. Deconstruction The three sections are based on three different approaches to the interplay between art music and jazz. But the idea was also to put this into a larger context. I am interested in how different cultural traditions in general can change. And I think I have found three important ways: 1) one tradition can change by absorbing features from a different tradition, 2) it can change with very careful and deliberate alteration, and 3) it can be changed by more radical dissolution of the structures that defines the culture. I would like to point out that I have no real intention to change the jazz tradition as the jazztrio stands for, but instead explore these ideas in an overall sound collage-like composition.

Peter Bjuhr Composer

Here I publish information of the music I've written. I also blog about my projects and thoughts about music in general.

I am a contemporary classical composer and compose music for classical musicians, but as you can see from my worklist I've also done other things - including live electronics, electroacoustic music (eam) and music for other types of ensembles (e.g. a jazz trio).

My works have been performed globally, including Europe, Asia and North America.
