Today I started studies in film music composition at Lillehammer Univerity College. Looking forward to score film Cues, learn the film history and watch and ”listen” to the 35 mandatory film as part of the 1 years study!
I have just finished my first Mass with the swedish title ”Mässa till Ljus från Mörker” (17 min) for soprano, choir SATB, strings and organ! The piece is commissioned by the Swedish Church (Skallsjö Församling) and will have it´s premiere at 20.october as part of the Skallsjö Church 150 years anniversary.
In this piece I decided only to use my violin as the only acoustic source and my goal was to create a musical piece with an orchestral soundworld despite the limitations of the violins range. To accomplish that I pitched, edtied and arranged the sounds in Abelton Live 9. All the sounds where recorded with Ehrlund Acoustic Microphone (seen in picture) and Avid Mbox.
