Music by Jens Hedman & Paulina Sundin.
I often see my music as combinations of colour and form. The structure of the sounds, their movements in space and the inherent symbolism that sounds carry in our environment, inspire me to stage new musical sound worlds. Working together with other creative people has been a central feature throughout my artistic life. Combining my music with poetry, video art, dance, and installations or, as here, composing music together is very rewarding for me.
Jens Hedman composes both instrumental and electro-acoustic music. His music is frequently performed at festivals and in radio broadcasts throughout the world. Jens music has also been awarded international prizes and awards.
For me, it is most often a sound that gets my imagination going ahead of a new composition. From the character conveyed by the sound, I then weave together a story or sound world in which I want the sound to develop. Exchanging ideas and collaborating with other artists, such as choreographers, video artists, architects, etc is fun and exciting. And to work together with another composer, as on this CD, not only makes it less lonely in the studio but is particularly fun, creative and educating.
Paulina Sundin is one of the few female composers to devote herself purely to electro-acoustic composing. Her music has been played and broadcast all over the world. She has received many awards throughout her career and in 1999 she was chosen by the Rotary Foundation to be their goodwill ambassador to England.
