English program note

This piece has been worked out in a close collaboration with the Swedish guitarist Stefan Östersjö, for whom the piece is written. The very intention was to create a framework within which Östersjö could re-interpret the ideas behind the score in every performance. Furthermore, in this framework every performance would contain all other performances. The foundation for the piece is the interactions between the three musical identities that are sketched out in the score and mirrored in the electronics. It is precisely these interactions that the guitarist can alter in performance, according to the feedback he or she is getting from the computer part, and according to his own likings. Repetition Repeats all Other Repetitions is a perpetual work in progress.

The most recent rendering (recorded in January 2011 with Stefan Östersjö playing the guitar part) is in some regards the first true version of the piece, in that the performer is now able to easily move back and forth through the digital score. The interactive computer part is taking input from the guitar signal, but is also using information about the current score page to inform its choice of pre-prepared and processed material.

The title, as well as the piece itself, is inspired by Deleuze's thinking about the complex interrelations between difference and repetition.

Swedish program note

Repetition Repeats all other Repetitions är komponerat till, och i nära samarbete med, gitarristen Stefan Östersjö. Avsikten var att utarbeta en struktur och ett material som Stefan skulle kunna omtolka och omarbeta inför varje framförande. Styckets grund är dramaturgin och interaktionen mellan de tre musikaliska 'karaktärer' som är utmejslade i partituret och det är just denna dramturgi som Stefan kan omforma inför varje framförande. Stycket är, per definition, ett 'work in progress' och bör fortsätta att utvecklas och hitta nya former.

Stycket har en nära relation till trion 'The Six Tones' som komponerades parallellt med 'Repetition...'. En tredjedel av materialet i gitarrstycket är transkriptioner av trioimprovisationer över en tidig skiss till 'Repetition...'. 'Repetition Repeats all other Repetitions' uruppfördes i Peking, Kina den 23 oktober, 2006. Stefan har därefter uppfört det i olika versioner i Palo Alto och Seatle i USA, i Birmingham, England och i Malmö.
