Since 2018 I have been researching the sound world of stones, mainly sandstone and limestone from my childhood shores at the island Öland in south of Sweden, but also slate from the French Pyrenees.
At a Master Clinic and residence at CAMP in Aulus-les-bains in spring 2018 I collected slate by the Pyrenees rivers and composed my first pieces for slate. In 2019 I composed the suite;
Öländsk Svit (limestone and sandstone) and Les Pyrénées (slate and electronics) for the performative percussion duo HIDDEN MOTHER, a commission by Samtida Musik.
It was premiered at Bredäng Church in Stockholm and has since then also been performed at Kulturtemplet, Göteborg, in a production by Levande Musik.
Öländsk Svit ( dur. 30 min) for sandstone and limestone consists of the pieces
The suite was recorded by Hidden Mother @EMS in februari 2019 and will be mixed during autumn 2019.
