CLASSICAL MUSIC AND SONGS
I have written 40 minutes of music with classical composer, Peter Bruun, called "Linje E".
"Linje E" - The E Line - is the name of a train line that cuts through a long - rather varied - part of Sealand, Denmark. The music is a merge between classical avantgarde and songs. Peter and I wrote it for string quartet, marimba, percussions, guitars and vocals. I am going on a tour with the music in the Fall of 2012. I will be accompanied by the lovely ladies: Karen Pedersen (violin), Benedikte Pontoppidan (violin), Eva Kock (viola) and Samira Dayyani (cello) as well as Mathias Friis Hansen on percussions. Below is a film from the first rehearsal we had last year. At that time, I was playing with the Messer Quartet.
An early rehersal of the song, "Same":
