SAMSPEL (2014)

Samspel consists of four short pieces written for kids with cerebral palsy and Blåsarsymfonikerna. It’s a piece that mixes traditional instruments, specially built instruments, and electronics. The idea: To give the kids a chance to interact and play music with professional musicians and together give a concert on a real stage. The challenge: For me (as a composer) was several. First I had to come up with an idea of how to communicate the music in a way that both the children and the musicians easily could understand and enjoy. I ended up dividing the kids into two groups that got two play two pieces each. One group was then subdivided into two smaller groups (five in each) but kept the musicians as one group through the whole piece. It acquired two conductors (one for each group) and I wrote a traditional score for the musicians and a mixed score for the kids based on different colors for each instrument. The project was Initiated by music teacher Magnus Allensten ( Jorielskolan) and commissioned by Musikaliska, Stockholm. The first concert was performed in April 2015. Foto: Chris Anderson
