Hvem, hvad, hvor
standstill and movement
I try to create a better version of myself in my music.
Where my person tends to be restless, babbling and have an active inner life, my music is controlled, simple and merciless in its expression.
Allan Gravgaard Madsen | composer
Danish composer based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
His works are “poetically insistant” in their exploration of the tension between standstill and movement.
The works consist of a micro world of sounds, sparse textures and limited musical material in which attention are drawn to the physical aspects of the classical instruments used in the composition.
Often you can hear noise, air, dampened sounds combined with harmonics, pitch in extreme registers, multiphonics and other extended techniques to create a subtle universe in which one can make out traces of the strict structures underpinning the sonic surface.
