Here’s a preview for you who want to hear it what it sounds like!

This is the score for Oi! written by Johannes!

New Rehearsal out-take

Hey everyone!

Today was a really really good rehearsal. Everyone was tired from work and the hundreds of other stuff we all do. Johannes was even feeling a little sick and had a headache. However, Hans had brought some candy and Johannes found half a cup of cold coffee in the kitchen. We set up our stuff and as soon as there was noise, there was peace. Johannes headache vanished like a sinesweep. We got into it good and towards the end we played one of Hans’s scores “Tonalt & Fint” that sounded like:

Rehearsal is ON

We have settled in our respective old/new homes here in Stockholm and (finally) started rehearsing at the wonderful EMS. And now, after a few weeks, it’s starting to sound really good again.

We are trying to work a bit more with different types of scores. Experimenting with what makes the best solution. So far we’ve been able to make a lot more diverse soundscapes and more deliberate form structures than before.

For your delight a first preview of what we’re working on is up, right here!
