After a summer filled of music festivals and courses including Montpellier, Bayreuth and Darmstadt(!), I started composing again in Stockholm, only making an exception for a late-summer creation residency at Obras in Portugal in October.

Here’s a pic from my artist talk; have a look at the map I drew for my colleagues on the wall behind me: it pictures the developments of my composition plans and adventures, showing why music theatre is what I’ve come to in the past few years, as much as how I had been aiming for it from the start.
