I’m a composer living and working in Oslo. I also play the guitar and enjoy coffee as well as reading. I want to be careful about giving any specific meaning to my music as I believe that the search for meaning is a personal act that the listener should be at liberty to do by him or herself.
That being said, there are certainly some general values I would like to uphold and which might say something about the the type of music I aim to write. Above all, I would like to write a type of music that is manifolded, with a great variety of musical characters and textures, but also clear in it's structure and intent. I see my work as a composer as someone that is exploring musical structures - how they relate to time and processes of change, and how they are intertwined and shaped into something meaningful.
