Periferi (2016) for guitar and live electronics was commissioned with sup­port from the Danish Arts Foundation and was given its first performance by Jakob Bangsø in October 2016 in Berlin. The work was created with and around direct communication between the guitar and a computer. Constant signal processing, looping and recordings from nature mixed with the guitar’s actual sound are controlled by midi-mapping on a computer keyboard where the guitarist creates the musical building blocks. As a result of this, the work can be built up individually for each performance. The result is a composition where the delicate tones of the guitar become ‘larger than life’ and occupy the space both in the purely physical sense around the listener, but very much also the inner space where the listener is moved by the intimacy and range of the guitar.
