New Oboe Music Project

I was very pleased that the New Oboe Music Project chose to feature my music recently.

“This month’s featured composer is one who has written particularly striking and beautiful music for the oboe. It was in 2007 that I heard Ellen’s piece Zosa performed by Laura Karney in Germany. I was immediately struck by how very well she had made use of multiphonics and techniques such as having the oboe play into the piano. Ellen really understood the instrument very well and has composed works that are very strong additions to the repertoire.”

Review: För levande och döda (now ‘drömseminarium’), 16 June 2007

“When the process was changed to the artistic the results became magnificent. The final piece, Romanska Bågar, was billowing and beautiful, with a free rhythmic flow, richly-coloured instrumentation, and melodies that slid in and out of each other in shimmering balance. … For the Living and the Dead will be premiered in Sweden in 2009 — an event worth the wait.
