Karl Aage Rasmussen
Born 13 December 1947, Kolding, Denmark

Karl Aage Rasmussen studied at the Aarhus Academy of Music. Many of his works use pre-existing material woven into a dense musical montage. While his early works focussed on the individual detail of these montages, he became increasingly concerned with a sense of momentum and in exploring our experience of time and movement: this is demonstrated in the chamber symphony Movements on a Moving Line, in which the texture is created out of different instruments playing the same music in different times. Psychological and dramatic dimensions have assumed a growing importance in works written since the 1990s.
