Let There Be Light – premier

Looking forward next Thursday 22nd September 1800 for the premier of my piece <Let There Be Light> a piece about the first appearance of light in the universe, by the very excellent NyNorsk Messingkvintett at Johanneskirke, Bergen. Containing space sound and vocal samples plus visuals by Evelina Dembacke!

The concert is produced by Avgarde/Bergen Kirkeautunnale, with special thanks to Kulturrådet and Morten Eide Pedersens Minnefond.

Bergen is an oasis for artistic development and creation, the amount of resources and high quality new music it produces is amazing for its size. Special shout out to Avgarde concert series led by Sigurd Fischer Olsen, with whom I have a great relationship and initiated this project!

Return to 3 Choirs Festival

Many years ago I was a chorister under Donald Hunt at Worcester Cathedral. Being a chorister was an amazing musical education. I sang everyday at the cathedral, did 7 services a week, worked with top musicians, toured, made records.
One of the highlights was performing at the 3 Choirs Festival. This year it´s at Hereford and on Friday 29th I get to hear my own music performed by the the very excellent vocal ensemble ¨Voice¨ at the Cathedral. The last time I visited it I was singing myself, although in a higher voice than my present!! (Full circle, tick!)
Please don´t forget Voice´s other show, Hildegard Transfigured at All Saints Church 10:15pm, Thurs 28 July, including more music from myself.

Musical Harmony on Apple playlist!

My piece Musical Harmony, released by Voice this week made it onto the apple.music classical play list. Thanks to Voice for the great recording!

Workshop in Oslo
