Jag ville vara en annan (2013)
(I wanted to be someone else)
choir, electric violin, electric (amplified) clarinet, 2 computers
Lyrics: Per Lagerkvist
Music: Stefan Klaverdal
Following a close collaboration with the duo Essens:1 an opportunity arised to write a number of pieces for choir and the duo. This is one of the pieces.
The music captures the overall melancholic mode in the lyrics.
ÓJag villeÉÓ is also a part of a work in progress of a selection of lyrics by Nobel laureate Per Lagerkvist for choir a capella or with instruments.
During the same project I did a few arrangements of other tunes. These are available here:
