Énouement

Énouement - n. the bittersweetness of having arrived here in the future, where you can finally get the answers to how things turn out in the real world... as if there was some part of you who had volunteered to stay behind, who was still stationed at a forgotten outpost somewhere in the past, still eagerly awaiting news from the front - Sourced from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

Opia

Premiere of new work 'Opia' by the Esbjerg Ensemble at the Royal Danish Academy of Music for Pulsar Festival.

Opia - n. the ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable—their pupils glittering, bottomless and opaque—as if you were peering through a hole in the door of a house, able to tell that there’s someone standing there, but unable to tell if you’re looking in or looking out. - The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.

Sleepless Eremite

Premiere performance by the Music Confucius Instituttet in tandem with Pulsar Festival. Scored for Chinese flutes, yangqin, pipa, cello and piano. This work is set to 'Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art' by John Keats. Wordless, the rhythms and imagery is interlocked into the composition of music and form. 

Bright star! would I were steadfast as thou art—
   Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night,
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
   Like Nature’s patient sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
   Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,

Excerpt of 'Bright Star' by John Keats.

We Are Only Breathing

Scored for solo percussionist performing setup of marimba and 10 Thai gongs. Premiering by Kalle Hakosalo at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in tandem with Pulsar Festival.

My place is placeless,
a trace of the traceless.

Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved,
have seen the two worlds as one
and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.

- An excerpt of 'Only Breath' by Rumi

Canthus

Canthus - n. the outer or inner corner of the eye, where the upper and lower lids meet.

This work is an exploration of phasing and stretching of time with no two elements being exactly symmetrical. It draws its basis of form upon both Gothic architecture and Renaissance music theoretical/applied conventions to create a work which is both percussive in nature while using time relations of form to further alter one's perception of temporal interplay. 

Premiere performance by guitarists Jesper Sivebaek and Per Paalsson in tandem with Pulsar Festival at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen.

Vol

Premiere in Łazienki Palace, Poland, by Andrzej Karałow and Pablo Sánchez-Escariche Gasch.

Vol is the word for both flight and theft when translated from French. Here taken out of context, the meaning of the word becomes ambiguous and in being so allows for an analysis of time following the Russian Revolution of 1917 when thousands of families fled the country they had once known as home, many to never return. A century later the history of displacement remains largely untold and unexplored.
