Im memoriam – Eva Erbenius

The Great Learning Orchestra is a network of over 100 musicians from different genres, cities and countries meeting to explore music at the center of listening. GLO has its base in Stockholm but collaborates with composers and musicians from around the world.

In 1980, the LP came “Miniatures (A Sequence Of Fifty One Tiny Masterpieces Edited By Morgan-Fisher)” with oneminute songs by artists such as The Residents, Robert Wyatt, Fred Frith and Maggie Nicols. Last year, The Great Learning Orchestra released the double-LP “Miniatures” – equally sharing a tribute as a theft of the original concept!

6. Basklarinettsolo – Christer Bothén
Bassclarinet piece containing circular breathing and some extended technique. Solo is an important part of my work! If music includes communication, you must also be in communication with yourself. Both music and myself is still a mystery to me. Recorded in Studio Fred Hell 15/1 2016.

The piece is based on two recordings of my A4-text-piece “Love”, one from the premiere (?) 2004 and the other from Marabouparken 2014, filmed by an unknown person and shared on youtube.
More about these here:
The performers are respective versions of GLO, but the individual participants on each occasion are mostly unknown to me, although I was in it myself the second time. A special tribute to the unknown trombonist who plays the stylish and atmospheric closing notes (2004).

10. B20 – David Linnros

11. Torbjörn Bellind – december (epilog)
For morin khuur (Mongolian horse head fiddle) and electro-acoustic modular synthesiser.
Through piezo microphones, the modular amplifies movements of hand and bow. In turn, these ingoing signals are voltage controlling timbral aspects of a sampling (chimes).
Performed by Torbjörn Bellind.
Recorded in 19 December 2015, live in home studio.
This is a short solo improvisation on a longer piece with the same name. It marks a boundary between the past and the present; a closure for the year that past, with hopes for a brighter future.

Biography: Gustaf Lundh is an artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. He has been working with audio composition and film of different kinds since 2006. The artistic and technical field include music composition, audio design, supervising, film directing and cutting, visual art, graphic design and poetry. In his early era Gustaf worked instrumentally with electronic experimental sampling with help from sequencers, hard- and softwares of different kind. Last five years though his musical work has been simplified and changed direction in two. Great inspiration has been taken from late midieval and high-renaissance counterpoint language from the christian choir and organ tradition. Alongside this a foundation of electroacoustic perspectives has been a big part with the view on music as nothing but sound and frequencies in order of time.
