Title: Kanske det är nat hos dig
Instrument/genre: chamber, song
Komponeret: 25.02.2018
Score: Kanske Det är Nat Hos Dig

A simple tune is dressed in Soprano, violin and organ dresses.
The beautiful poem by Bo Setterlind is mesmerising in its longing.
The piece was commissioned by Cecilia Lindwall for her Maria – concert serie.





Bo Setterlind (1923-1991) 1961,

Kanske det er är natt hos dig

kanske det är natt hos dig, kanske stjärnor glimma över svarta djup hos dig
i din sista timma.

Kanske världen denna natt liknar evigheten:
Lejon vandra där med lamm över smärtans beten.

Kanske det är natt hos dig, Betlehem till minne
natt som på Herodes' tid,

och din stund är inne. Kanske på ditt hjärtas port som en fattig broder
Josef klappar och du ser framför dig Guds moder.

Kanske det är natt hos dig,
kanske stjärnor glimma,
då Guds moder ser på dig i sin födslot timma. Kan du neka henne rum,
som i sådan smärta
bär Guds evangelium
till ett mänskohjärta!

Kanske det är natt hos dig...

Title: Det är Vackrast när det skymmer
Instrument/genre: Song
Komponeret: 2017
Score: Det är vackrast

Text Pär Lagerkvist (1919)
”Det âr Vackrast när det Skymmer” is a commision from soprano Cecilia Lindwall.
One of Cecilia Lindwall’s favorit poem’s is” Det er vackrast”.
I was very caught by the beauty of the poem by Pär Lagerkvist and this song appeared.
The piece is for Soprano and Piano.



Det är Vackrast när det Skymmer

Det är vackrast när det skymmer All den kärlek himlen rymmer Ligger samlad i ett dunkelt ljus Över jorden,

Över markens hus

Allt är ömhet

Allt är smekt av händer

Herren själv utplånar fjärran stränder

Allt är nära, allt är långt ifrån

Allt är givet människan som lån

Allt är mitt och allt ska tagas ifrån mig Inom kort ska allt tagas ifrån mig Träden, molnen, marken där jag går

Jag skall vandra - ensam utan spår


Pär Lagerkvist, 1919

73. Sekvenser (Sugar Theatre)

Sekvenser (Sugar Theatre)
Instrument/genre: opera
Komponeret: 2016

Part of Exhibition in PANUM, exhibited a full year at Panum-institute Copenhagen.

The Exhibition is called “Sugar Chorus” by Morten Soendergaard whose poetry an exhibit is commenting on sugar and metabolism.

My contribution is:
8 Opera singers recorded separately an exhibited each one in 8 body sized monitors.

The piece is a double quartet,
The first group of singers S1, A1, T1, B1 sings sentences from glucose text. The second quartet of singers S2, A2, T2, B2 sings material from metabolism. The amount of music and time is equal for both quartets.

I ‘ve used the following sentences for my work SEKVENSER:

Glucose: S1, A1, T1, B1, Sequence 1:
- N-acetylgalactosamine, - Galactose,

- N-acetylneuraminic acid,

- Mannose,
- Fucose
Sequence 2:
-Enzymatic process where sugars are added to proteins and lipids. -Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats.

-Zinc finger nucleases, glycosyltransferases, enzymes that build sugars. -Macromolecules with high density of sugar found in body fluids. Sequence 3:
-Type of protein, type of protein found on mycein...

-more than two-hundred glycosyltransferases enzymes are found in man and these orchestrate the synthesis of enormous diversity in glycan structures on proteins and lipids.

Sequence 4:
-The Major allogenic difference and barrier for for blood transfusion and organ transplantation in man is the blood group ABO system, - the ABH antigens that cause immunological reactions if unmatched are simple sugar structures consisting of...

The main host cell for production of recombinant glycoprotein therapeutics,

... such as antibodies, coagulation factors and enzymes for replacement therapy...

Sequence 5:
-We have developed the simple cell strategy in which glycosylation is genetically simplified in Cells to enable efficient enrichment of defined glycoprotein’s and characterization of glycoproteomes by.... Mass spectrometry

-Complex glycans represent the third language of life after DNA and proteins.

Metabolism S2, A2, T2, B2

Sequence 1:
-AMP-activated protein kinase regulates nicotinamide phosphoribosyl transferase expression in skeletal muscle.

Sequence 2:
-signaling in vitro is associated with robust incretin secretagogue action ex vivo and in vivo

Sequence 3:
-The gastrointestinal tract plays a major role in the regulation of postprandial glucose profiles.

Sequence 4:
-It is widely accepted that obesity and associated metabolic diseases.... are intimately linked to diet

Sequence 5:
-Metabolites are not just fuel and building blocks, key metabolites are signaling molecules just like hormones and neurotransmitters

Poem (in Danish):

Pludselig var den der,

den der soleklare


af det mørke

der venter mig.

Jeg vidste det godt

havde længet kunnet fortælle andre

hvad der ventede dem

men der var lang tid til for mig

Det er der ikke længere

Og det er på sin egen underlige måde

både helt i orden og helt forfærdeligt…

Score: Quirky dance for 6 feets and 4 hands

The piece is a commission from Trio Ophicleide (octopus) who has specialized in playing three persons at one organ.
The share amount of hands and feets makes it a spectacle to watch. They perform with a camera attached for the public to see at the floor.
The piece is a funky short “bon mot” of a dance, performed at the instrument, old and quirky, but beautiful to watch.
