Recently, I was invited for lunch by my good friend, artist Bengt Berglund. After lunch Bengt showed me a new work of art in different colours and said “Daniel, what kind of music will there be for these art works?”
When I see the pictures I think of shapes that changes, like clouds in the sky. Even if you think you know how the cloud will be formed, it often takes a different and an unexpected direction. Different eyes also create its own interpretation of abstract forms – you choose what you associate the shapes with.
When I got home and saw the pictures again, I got an idea to write a piece with long chord changes, where listeners does not know what the ending will be – even if they have heard the music before. The piece has three different endings and each performer can decide his or her choice of ending. It may depend on the hall and the audience atmosphere in the hall for the performer to decide which ending they choose.
