Wolf Valley in Molde


Saturday the 23rd of July we had our world premiere with the original “cast” of Wolf Valley at Molde International Jazz Festival. The concert was a success, and some videos from the show will be announced soon!

Thanks to Daniel Herskedal for a nice picture!

Commissioned piece for Scheen Jazz Orchestra

This winter and spring I’ve received a commissioned work for a relatively new (and great!) orchestra named Scheen Jazzorkester based in my hometown Skien. The Norwegian Arts Council has supported a project where I’m writing new music for this 14-piece orchestra including myself, and we plan to premiere the music in September/October this year. Looking forward!


Denne våren har jeg mottatt oppdraget med et bestillingsverk til Skien Jazzorkester, et flott jazzensemble basert i min hjemby Skien. Norsk Kulturråd har støttet et prosjekt der jeg komponerer ny musikk for dette 14-mann/kvinnes orkesteret inkludert meg selv, og vi planlegger å urfremføre musikken i september/oktober inneværende år. Dette blir spennende!

Wolf Valley preprod and upcoming recording session

Next week I’m going in studio with my new project, Wolf Valley. I’ve been writing new music for this amazing collection of improvising musicians:

Hayden Powell – trumpet

Rob Waring – vibraphone

Gard Nilssen – drums

André Roligheten – sax

Kristoffer Kompen – trombone

Adrian Løseth Waade – violin

Per Zanussi – bass

ED – piano

The wonderful Athletic Sound in Halden was the studio of our choice, and we’re really looking forward.

Lars-Ingar Bragvin Andresen will be following the session with his camera, he also took this picture.

Pictures from trio concert

Yesterday i did my first piano trio concert since the early days as a student, it was such a joy to play with Thomas Strønen and Per Zanussi. A fully seated venue, Blåboks at Bølgen kulturhus in Larvik! Here’s some pictures from the concert.


I går spilte jeg min første pianotriokonsert siden tidlige studiedager, og det var virkelig fint å spille med Thomas Strønen og Per Zanussi for et fullsatt Blåboks på Bølgen Kulturhus i Larvik! Her er noen bilder fra konserten.
