    Musical Temporalities and Complex Rhythm as Ways of Coexistence with Nature in John Luther Adams’s Inuksuit2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the major global issues of our time is undeniably the ongoing war on nature and the environmental damage continuously encouraged by modern society. This paper investigates the potential in contemporary art music not only to raise awareness of environmental issues, but also to incite listeners to experience an ethical principle of nature through music by tuning in to nature’s rhythmic temporalities.

    American composer John Luther Adams’s work Inuksuit (2009) for nine to ninety-nine percussionists is generally regarded as a political environmental piece. It is to be performed in the outdoors, and one of its incitements is to question what it means for humans to immerse themselves in the sounds of nature through music. At a first listening, though, the music encourages a sense of great violence and destruction, which goes against an intuitive understanding of coexistence. The music gradually shuts out all natural sounds, and with an increasing rhythmic complexity it builds toward a complete cacophony of sound – has man, yet again, taken control over nature? However, through closer attention to rhythmic details and the insides of the musical structure a way of coexistence is made evident. Through Deleuzo-Guattarian notions of time, rhythm and nature, the music reveals a recognition of nature’s smooth, non-pulsed temporalities, as such envisaging a way of coexistence with nature by tuning in to its multiplicity of complex rhythms.

    Writing Composer Biographies in the project Swedish Musical Heritage2016In: Danish Musicology Online, ISSN 1904-237X, Vol. 6, p. 43-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish Musical Heritage is a six-year-long project whose purpose is to make music, that is rarely played, more accessible so that it might gain a new audience. The project is funded by the Swedish Royal Academy of Music. Biographical texts on more than 300 Swedish composers, mainly unknown even for specialists in Swedish music history, provide a background for the use of the musical works, whether for performance or for research. The writing of these biographical texts is the topic of this article – the subject of which more precisely contains discussions around this rather old-fashioned task. The authors of this article are involved in this work in various ways and write from their respective starting points. The conclusion we have reached collectively is that the writing of biographies is of great value; the image of Swedish music history is deepened, female composers have become more visible, the musical life outside of Stockholm is described, and the great variety of roles a composer could have becomes clear.
