I'd like to extend a big thank you to all the fantastic musicians and the wonderful staff in and around Norrbotten Big Band for a great year working with them as Composer in Residence. It was fruitful, fun, exciting, productive, challenging at times for all of us, and it brought many new relations professional and personal that I hope we can continue into the future. We are setting up new concerts for July 2017 in Denmark, Sweden adn Germany; stay tuned to find out where we will be. 

 

 

 

Composer in Residence Concert w/Norrbotten Big Band

The weekend of Nov 12 & 13 I am concluding my year as 'Composer in Residence' for Norrbotten Big Band with a concert and live recording by Swedish Radio in Luleå (Nov 12 7pm) and an additional recording of the music on Nov 13. It has been a really great experience working with the band and composing the music; music that has been tailored directly for Norrbotten Big Band, utilizing the exsisting strengths of the band, but also attempting to push them into new challenges.

Composing for Norrbotten Big Band

 Read more...

 Throughout 2016 I have the good fortune of writing new music for Norrbotten Big Band (S). Four times this year I am visiting them in Luleå; rehearsing ideas, rehearsing parts and sections of the new music, trying out  sounds and approaches, and receiving inputs from all the great musicians in the band. Then I go home and write more music, develop the ideas I like and give free flow to the inspiration and new ideas that comes around. On November 12, we end this project with a concert and live-transmission on Swedish National Radio with 80 minutes of new music written specifically for - and with - Norrbotten Big Band. 

Currently being half ways through I testify that I love this process, and I am really thankful to get the opportunity to work with this amazing band, in exactly this way. It is a wonderful puzzle I am solving; finding the right balance between my musical visons and ambitions for the project and the strengths and capabilities of the band AND the individual indentities of the outstanding musicians in the band.

And now: - back to writing:)
