Choice or chance

2009 May 31

I´m interested in Cage´s methods of incorporating chance in music, but whenever I want to use chance as a factor in a composition I tend to go for choice instead. Let´s say that I would have six alternatives and I am thinking of using chance. But instead of throwing a dice to get a totally random result, I would tend to choose which of the six alternatives I prefer. I think that there is something fundamentally interesting here; let me get back to this... (To be clear, Cage used both choice and chance in his compositions.)

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.
