Drone Music

any ensemble of at least three musicians

5-10 min and up (no max length)




Drone music is one of several pieces composed for an unspecified ensemble. Working with ensembles and musicians at the Academy of Music in Malmš I saw the need for making it possible for extremely diverse constellations of musicians to play together. More often than not it is a common interest in new music that makes musicians want to play contemporary music rather than a specific ensemble type.

I consequently composed a series of open pieces.


This piece is experimenting with the smallest possible musical element: one note. It is exploring that and expanding or zooming in on it to see what it is made up of.

First performance by Konstig Elektronisk Musik in Malmš, February 2010.




A version for chamber ensemble, in combination with another open piece, ÓDelay MusicÓ:
