Steen-Andersen:

Black Box Music

Run Time Error #1+2


Oslo Sinfonietta, Hakon Stene

The Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen’s audio-visual work Black Box Music is a surprising, energetic, noisy and yet profoundly entertaining deconstruction of traditional musical drama. The starting point is the classical setting of a conductor in front of an orchestra – but quickly the scenery explodes in musical and choreographic energy ad absurdum, bending the conductor’s role through puppet theatre, hand choreography and eventually a musical performance involving tuning forks, finger snaps, rubber bands and the construction of a musical machine within the black box.

The DVD also includes Steen-Andersen’s signature work Run Time Error, filmed at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, as well as a short documentary, and thus offers a fascinating meeting with one of Nordic Music’s most visionary voices today.

Since its conception in 2012, Black Box Music has been performed 15 times in 9 different countries. The work was nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2014.

Study for Alto Saxophone and Percussion


Duo KAPOW!

This collection of works for saxophone and percussion by five Danish composers challenge standard ideas of melody, sonority and harmony. Some of the works are typified by great desperation and pent-up emotions, others by melancholy and reflection. The music snorts, groans, snarls and shouts – or fizzles, whispers and chafes – and is a remarkable display of the almost infinite expressive possibilities of this unusual combination of instruments.

String Quartet No. 1


String quartet meets electronica – in a fruitful clash of traditions and new possibilities.

Five young Danish composers lead the string quartet genre into the future, and the five are linked by electronic remixes of their works, so that the CD forms a “composition of compositions”.

asamisimasa Ensemble

The microphones are right up against the instruments in Simon Steen-Andersen’s five pieces on this CD, so that all the small sounds and noises one normally tries to suppress take on a central role in the music.

Simon Steen-Andersen belongs to the youngest generation of Danish composers, but he has already made his mark both on the Danish scene and abroad. In recent years the young Danish composer has made his name internationally with totally surprising ways of thinking and a great talent for transforming these ideas into original music that is both different and innovative, but at the same time poetic and overwhelming…
