The Cliché Sixten Sparre.
Hedvig Jensen is a famous ropewalker and is known to her public as Elvira Madigan.
She meets Lieutenant Sixten Sparre, a Swedish officer who is married and has two children.
Sixten and Hedvig decide to run away, but since Sixten deserted from the army, he cannot find any job and the couple encounters many hardships.
This piece is about older, married men who leaves their families to find “true happiness” in younger women.
It’s based on a true story that took place in Sweden and Denmark in the late 19th century.
I’ve given the piece a dedication to Swedish filmmaker Bo Widerberg since he directed the remake of Elvira Madigan.
And for him using the Andante from Piano Concerto No. 21 in C (K 467) by Mozart, which is now popularly known as ”Theme from Elvira Madigan”.
The Cliché Sixten Sparre has four stages:
Attraction – immediate and exploding
Love – tentative and clumsy
Anxiety – financial and spiritual
Death – .
In this piece I’ve decided to explore both musical and sound effect clichés. Using different sonic moods and the 5.0 surround format as my platform I’ve taken this sad story into the 21th century. From the “spinning metal object” to the “reversed broken glass”… From the “thunderstorm” to the final blow… And in between the clichés you will find love and… Mozart!?!

Charter – 2011
A short piece meditating over future charter flights.
Will we be “beamed” between different paradises?
If so, will we beam to another paradise if we don’t like the food or if the weather doesn’t suite us?
Or, will we just “log-on” and experience it all from home?
Listen to Charter – 2011:
Plz stay tuned for more information.
All I can say at the moment is that it will be amazing(!)
