my paths of composing

Updated: Mar 13

welcome to my blog



Few days ago I had a premiere together with a young flutist from Sweden, Maria Jönsson. It was my piece for bass flute and analog synthesizer, called fantaasia "Kulunud koraal" ("A threadbare chant"). For the first time I used analog synthesizer in my composition...

It was a KORG minilogue, which I played myself. It was a total fun! I want to repeat this experience as soon as possible and can't wait to combine it with other instruments too.
