211. DJØFONI Nr. 1 (2015-16)


2222 4320 10 Strings


15 min.

The Djøphony - a new kind of piece, where several important parts of a composition is missing - conscious! New Public Management - accused by many of the "Excelification" of Danish society - is the main target - the humans in Denmark are the suffering part. No. 1 is about money saving - by excluding important parts of a former composition - in the name of saving money. The base of the composition is my 2nd Symphony from 1997 - in this Djøfophonic version 4 parts short. Perform them separately - or right after each other.

3*3*3*3* 4331 15 Strings


4 min.

The comprimation of a 90 minute symphony (Symphony No. 1 - "The Visitor" (1987, Opus 13)) to 4 minutes - with all the important moves, themes and moods intact!. This is what "The Symphony Race" (Opus 14, 1987) should have sounded if I had the time to compose it in a proper manner at that time. Composed as a "Hello and thank you very much" to Nordiska Ungdomsorkestern in Lund (Sweden) for all the fun of "The Johnny K. Fight Song" in 2005, and for "von Falkenstein - en underhållning" in 2014. We had a great time there! :-)

At least 5 min.

Start of story: I´m a Muppet Show Fanatic! The possibility to combine my & their worlds, in the Wallinsky kind of style, was obvious, when I collected a couple of artificial pig pets (the start of the Pigophone...)

After the start of the composition proces, I realized that it was a simple thing to show off the idea to any other thing possible - these here above combinations are just the composed variants (yet). Further ones to come... :-) End of story! Open in mind - partly score proceeded in the performance moment... Watch out! :-)

The composition is groundly based on the original "Space" (1984, Opus 4).
