New music added to the mixed tape playlist on the front page. From the old album ‘Tusmørkedyr’ with the trio Sammensurium feat. Michael Blake. On drums it is Søren Mehlsen and on bass Jesper Smalbro. Still holds up, I think ;-)

More music has been added to the website, among them also some older compositions. You can find an excerpt from Trigger Me!? for sinfonietta and a recording of the bigband composition Tophemmelige Planer in the large ensemble section. Hope you enjoy!

The Story Of A Building: Vandtårnet

Watch a short video about this project, which I made in collaboration with dancer Pernille Malou Konzack Sørensen in the old water tower at Randersvej in Aarhus.

It was a performance of sound and dance exploring the rooms and history of the iconic building.
