Afenginn shows cancelled – new Klingra trio show

Last week the restrictions were prolonged until end of February here in DK and we had to postpone three Afenginn shows that were scheduled for “Winterjazz” in week 6 around the country. I’ve been looking very much forward to playing these concerts together with the good old Afenginn crew, but hopefully we’ll get a chance […]

Music for piano and electronics

Last weekend I got the opportunity to play a house concert at a private event in Copenhagen. I did it together with Roma, who also does the sound and electronics in both Afenginn and Klingra – aaaand we share a house, so it was pretty staright forward to get this started. And it also grew […]

New band: Klingra

Based on the album “Klingra”, which is the latest album from Afenginn, I’ve decided to start a new band that will focus on the musical expression and direction from that album. The band is also called Klingra. It means “circle” in faroese. The members are all musicians that I’ve worked with before in Afenginn and […]

Then a week later we were nominated in Danish Music Awards – World for OPUS again: “Composer of the […]

Composer’s grant from Danish Arts Foundation!

I have received a grant from the Danish Arts Foundation for continuous compositional work over the next year. I am very happy and grateful for this honor and will keep doing my best and working on new music. The road as a self-employed composer/musician is uncertain most of the time, and getting a grant really […]

OPUS is out!

I haven’t been updating this site for quite a while. The last 12 months or so has been pretty turbulent as I’ve been composing and producing the new Afenginn album. It is now finally ready and released. It’s called OPUS and really turned out great, if I may say that myself. The reviews so far […]
