The physical aspects of music are the most intriguing for me. Some music can make you jump out of your seat in the concert hall. Some music can make you feel depressed, happy or even sexually aroused. Music can also create space, or the feeling of it. Sometimes only with its acoustic properties, but sometimes the physical feeling you get from your auditive experience creates the feeling of being inside the music. For many composers the creating of music must also, for the most part, be intellectually stimulating. In my work I actively try to explore the physical and intellectual aspects of music, and accidentally I often put some Jazz in the mix.
My musical background is that of a choir-singer, dedicated heavy-metal fan and former jazz-percussionist. I decided to study composition at Gotlands Tonsättarskola in 2010, and at Kungliga Musikhögskolan in 2012. My main composition teachers where Per Mårtensson, Henrik Strindberg and Pär Lindgren. My compositional niche have been contemporary choir and rhythmical ensemble music. I have always been interested in exploring different rhythmical elements in a “classical” frame, such as metrical modulations and – superpositioning.
