Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the composer Øyvind Mæland's own words: “The works on this [album] were written in the period 2008-2012. Already this feels remarkably long ago- at the time I was a student at the Norwegian Academy of Music, but because I realize that these works have been important to me as a composer I have neither been able- nor wanted- to throw them to the wind. I found many elements that pointed towards more recent works… also recorded on LAWO by Stine Motland and the ensemble Aksiom. This is contemporary music scored for very traditional instrument combinations such as piano solo, duo for violin and piano, string quartet, and “Lieder”- the latter, however, with the prefix “sci-fi.” In the composer Øyvind Mæland's own words: “The works on this [album] were written in the period 2008-2012.
