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!

Repetition Repeats all other Repetitions in at the Research Pavi

Repetition Repeats all other Repetitions is an open form composition for 10-stringed guitar and electronics. The piece emerged out of a collaboration between the composer Henrik Frisk and the guitarist Stefan Östersjö and developed into an artistic research project in which interaction, in the widest sense, was allowed to play a major part. This weekend it will be performed three times in the CRT Theatre in Guidecca, Venice, at 11, 15 and 17.

The second and formative meeting for the new national network for artistic research in music, NKFM, is taking place Monday-Tuesday August 22-23 in Gothenburg. This is a very exciting event in something I initiated last year as a final activity in the artistic research school: The attempt to create a subject specific network in music that could help carry on the discussions that took place in the research school.

On Monday night I am playing a concert with the fantastic pianist Sten Sandell at Artisten at the school for music and theatre in Gothenburg.

När träden sover/subtraktion och Ur askan/Unverwüstbarkeit av Eb

Det är fåfängt att drömma om en vildmark fjärran från oss själva. Någon sådan finns inte. Det är myrmarkerna i våra hjärnor och magar, naturens urkraft inom oss, som lockar fram den drömmen. Jag kan aldrig hitta en större vildmark i det ödsliga Labrador än i en vrå av Concord, dvs. än vad jag själv för med mig dit. H D Thoreaus dagbok, 30 augusti 1856
