Jan Martin Smørdal
As a former band musician, especially two topics give colour to my compositional work: the dynamics between the individual and the group, and the relationship between rhythm and pulse. Over the past couple of years, my work has been strongly inspired by swarm phenomena, flocking, and emergent behaviour.

Grønvold’s improvisation is in this piece transcribed and partly re-played by the musicians, resulting in a tension between the re-presented presence and the present performance. Through this "translation" content is lost, but at the same time something different is illuminated.
