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 and perhaps more of an archive than a promotion, 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!

I am also writing a blog (in Swedish) which is more concerned with politics and other things than music.

Image Schema (Play into your Eye)

Music to a video created by Johan Fröst. The visual material is a processed recording of himself playing a short piano piece by Debussy. I have not used the original music as my point of departure, rather I have focused on the images and extracted the form from the changes in the image. This piece was premiered in Engelbrektskyrkan in Stockholm on Nowember 24.
