It's summer and vacation time for many, which means lots of music around the country and abroad! I'm fortunate to have a couple of my newly written pieces performed by some truly fine musicians. First up is Sofia Wik, who will premiere "Summer" for marimba on July 14th at Kaga Church in Linköping. Then it's off to Finland, where the Palm Trio will premiere my new piano trio called "Reflections & Rhythms" on July 25th during the Savonlinna Music Festival. For those interested, here are the dates for all the concerts. Hope to see you there and have a great summer!

Time is flying by, and today marks the 1-year anniversary of the EP "Darkness & Light." Released on the longest day of the year, 06.21.2023, this EP captures a very special time when light and darkness blend, creating a mystical sensation that many of us, especially here in the Nordics, find so powerful.

In just a few days, we begin our journey into darkness again. The ebb and flow, much like our own emotional lives, mirrors the changing seasons.

I'm so grateful to all of you who have listened, and to Jacob who has performed all the pieces live over the past year.

Today, on 05.18.24, my grandmother Elisabet on my father's side would have turned 108. I wrote this organ piece for her funeral service in 2008. It was composed intuitively and rather quickly, and while it's not my best work, it incorporates several key ideas that feature in my current compositions:

- One single long, ever-present, sustained note symbolizing the eternal light
- Generally slow tempo
- Stepwise motion and a minimalist, ambient atmosphere
- Clear lines and sections
- Minimal musical material
- Modal rather than chromatic harmonic structure
- Sometimes melodic but without a traditional melody, focusing instead on oscillations

The music fades into the ether at the end, a poetic touch I've used many times. Unfortunately, I don't have an audio or video recording of the original piece, but I made a simple demo with a sampled organ to give you an idea of it. Please click the video to listen. ❤️
