Some of my thoughts behind the music
I composed the orchestral work The Secret Garden (Den Hemmelige Have) to be a part of the similarly titled art installation or “gesamtkunstwerk” – created by Maria Dubin (colors, floor design and glass), Kim Borch (light), and myself (music) for the entrance to the radiation therapy section at Rigshospitalet (The National Hospital) in Copenhagen, Denmark. This makes it a piece of music with a target audience; patients, relatives, and hospital staff.

Composing music for this particular setting and audience was a challenge, and also a great responsibility. In order to do so I first spent time in the radiation therapy section of the hospital to get a clear image of where and how the music would be experienced, and – by observing and talking with the patients and staff, a better understanding of the experience itself of waiting for the treatments.

After careful and prolonged preparations came the work of actually composing the music, and for that I drew on the observations from the hospital, and of course on my combined experience and knowledge as a composer, but also to a large degree on my personal experiences as a relative. Both my parents died from cancer after year-long battles.

JITRO IN HEAVEN, the fourth release on Navona Records from the Jitro Czech Girls Choir, balances the liturgical with the lighthearted. Propelled by the fusion of Petr Eben’s compositions, the Choir’s virtuosic ability to capture the emotional essence of the songs, and the conductor’s artful and sensitive leadership, it is an unforgettable collection of contemporary choral performances.

In this broadcast we venture to the darkside of YouTube of music videos that promise everything from re-growing your hair to changing your sex. This is the world of ClickBait, videos in which their only objective is to get you to listen to their videos countless times a day in a pursuit to improve yourself, physically.

We were intrigued by the electronic music created by ClickBait composers which can be quite exceptional.

Since this music is composed to relax you, we highly suggest that you listen to this broadcast when you are NOT driving or operating machinery of any kind!

Please note: this broadcast is strictly for entertainment purposes and listening to this music will not grow hair on your head, make you rich, give you luck while gambling, etc.

While the intent of these videos is clearly (as Sheldon Cooper would say) "Malarkey" we think the music composed is clearly worth a listen to.

TACIT-CITAT-ION
MODERN CHAMBER WORKS
REBECKA SOFIA AHVENNIEMI

Rebecka Sofia Ahvenniemi's debut TACIT-CITAT-ION is a reflection of contemporary Scandinavian composition – gestural, yet empowered by painstaking attention to detail. Where other composers' work ends, Ahvenniemi only begins. Breath sounds, glottal stops, microphone static, white noise, electronic interferences, the percussive friction of instrument bows – these byproducts of music are the backbone of TACIT-CITAT-ION, yielding a truly unique auditory experience.

FINLAND-BASED FILM COMPOSER KEPA LEHTINEN RELEASES NEW ALBUM, HELSINKI IN NOVEMBER, OF PIANO AND THEREMIN MUSIC!

Well-known Finland-based film and TV composer Kepa Lehtinen is proud to announce the release of his new album, Helsinki In November, that features original contemporary classical music written for piano, contrabass, and theremin. The theremin is an almost-century-old electronic instrument that’s played by hand gestures rather than direct contact and is seldom encountered in the classical world. Lehtinen, however, makes the instrument a cornerstone of his sound and Helsinki In November gives listeners a master class in what this unusual instrument can do.

The theremin takes the role of a violin in more typical classical duets and compliments the piano well. It also allows for sounds and techniques a violin could never equal. The combination of theremin, piano, and contrabass creates a sound full of cinematic darkness that immediately commands attention. On Helsinki In November the theremin is no longer a freak but a stand-alone lead instrument.

Kepa Lehtinen was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1971 and began studying music in childhood, eventually learning to play piano, synthesizers, theremin and drums. He went on to study Sound Design at Finland’s Aalto University and has since written music for many films, commercials, and TV productions. He routinely works as a composer, sound editor, and sound designer. His work has appeared in award-winning Finnish titles such as Kimmo (TV series), Almost 18 (feature film), and A Stone Left Unturned (short film). He released his first solo album, Playing Theremin, in 2018. The set combined Kepa’s impressive theremin playing with the sound of analog synths and was exceptionally well-received.

Finally in this album, after beautiful and sometimes melancholic athmosphere, the last track 10 print "kontula;" is a freak combination of etheric theremin and Commodore-64 sounds which will leave the listener really upset.
