This site is dedicated to sharing information about what I do as a musician, composer and researcher. I will happily receive any kind of feedback, especially through posting comments in any of the two blogs, either the one dedicated to music or the one more geared towards thinking (through music). The site is definitely an infinite work-in-progress but hopefully you will not experience weird behaviour and broken links. However, if you do, please feel free to send me a note about what happened and how it happened.

I will attempt to use this site, among other things, as a virtual stage posting new recordings every now and then. Please check back regularly and thank you for visiting!

Go to Hell

Go To Hell: installation and performance with The Six Tones. Choreography by Marie Fahlin. Video by Anders Elberling and Jörgen Dahlqvist. Sound and light installation by Gerhard Eckel. Music by Rolf Riehm, Henrik Frisk (all live electronics), Richard Karpen and The Six Tones. Light design by Sutoda.

Go To Hell: gesture and sound on the threshold.

Go to Hell is an installation and performance work set on the threshold between gesture and sound and between the worlds of the dead and the living. The three musicians of the Vietnamese/Swedish group The Six Tones move through the subterranean landscape of the dismantled R1 nuclear reactor like mythological after-images. Fragments from the myth of Orpheus are double-exposed with the tale of a beheaded ghost from Vietnamese Tuong theatre. Evoked by the potential danger of the location, the audience is invited to explore an interactive and open form installation that relates to ancient myth and its bearings on experimental art of today. The choreographies and video art all relate to the gestural and conceptual content of Toccata Orpheus, a composition for guitar solo by the German composer Rolf Riehm.

KU – igår, idag och i morgon

Termen Konstnärligt utvecklingsarbete härstammar från högskolereformen 1977. De konstnärliga högskolorna inlemmades i universiteten, gick från att enbart vara undervisningsinstitutioner till att också härbärgera forskning – men av vilket slag, det var frågan. Att se på konstnärliga processer som en del av det akademiska kunskapsbyggandet var inte populärt; till skillnad från “god vetenskaplig forskning”, ansågs konstnärliga projekt varken vara generella eller verifierbara utan byggda på subjektiva ställningstaganden i kontrast till den vetenskapliga metoden.
