new song: bakom brus

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Since I moved to Sweden, I engaged in composition a lot. Therefore, I like to share one piece of mine with you. “bakom brus” (swedish, “behind noise”) is a piece for noise generator and friends, which I wrote for my composition class with Johan Samskog (Stockholm). Tack för kritiken och synpunkter.  Hope you enjoy it.

Here comes the third and last song of the last session. It is probably the first love song with a “Hazelnut Tree” as the main character. I don’t want to spent to much words on the song or the lyrics. Listen!

PS: Und wieder erfüllt sich ein klischee. Grüne sind “baumknutscher.”

talking plane home delay blues

Alright. Here comes the next song of our last recording session. It is called “talking plane home delay blues” and was written on the WOMAD songwriting workshop in Bath by Mike Hembury and me.

As I already noted, it contains some common lines with one of Andy White’s new songs.

The amazing voice in the beginning belongs to Hikmat Al-Sabty of the fantastic ensemble Ourud Elmahabbe. Thanks to him and all the other musicians involved.
