Most Magical Night

This composition, titled Most Magical Night, contains material that i've been developing for a few weeks. The piece consists of short figures which are repeated multiple times and then varied and repeated some more. Some of the figures involve a written idea and then a short space for improvisation, while others are totally written. There are also places where there is no written material.

The idea to assemble this material in this manner, as well as the idea for the title, came to me while walking late at night. The seasons are changing and this seems to create a special kind of energy in the air. It's as if all of the natural world is going somewhere; there is a sense of urgency and nothing is static. I hope this sentiment is reflected in this piece.

Tusen takk til Anja at Grünerløkka Lufthavn for letting me use the space at Galleri 69 to record this video. Lufthavn is a great place in Oslo that really helps support artists. Check them out: here!
