Art music today

2008 November 11

As a representative for C-Y contemporary I was recently asked to describe the status of artmusic today; a task I find very stimulating. I think that we in C-Y have a very clear picture of what we are doing so the question wasn´t difficult to answer: First, and perhaps most importantly we have an integration of art and music under the concept of sound art. Secondly we have influences from other genres, were free jazz and electronica are perhaps those most closely related. But we have also now more references to older forms of art music. Artmusic is today more eclectic than ever before. In both characteristics above electronic music in different forms play an important role. These two are as I see the most recent trends. But naturally ideals from the two major movements of the twentieth century, modernism and minimalism, still lives on in our century.

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.
