Program Notes
Skuggaljós (Shadowlights) was written for Caput Ensemble in 2019/2020. The piece consists of six short movements, were the interplay between lights and shadows is protrayed in different ways. The movements are: I. Bjartir skuggar (Bright shadows) II. Ljósbrot (Refractions) III. Næturljóð (Nocturne) IV. Inn og út um skuggann (In and out of the shadow) V. Regnljós (Rainlight) VI. Svefnljós (Sleeplight) The soundworld of the piece is varied. Some of the sounds are pure and bright (like beams of lights), while others are rough and gloomy (like shadows). And then there are these inscrutable sounds that dance so intruigingly on the border between light and shadow; some sort of shadowlights.
