Composer and avant-garde performance artist Rolf Wallin has established a reputation as one of the leading Scandinavian composers of his generation. Much of Wallin’s music combines an intuitive freedom with a rigorous mathematical approach, such as use of fractal algorithms to construct melody and harmony, resulting in a music that often hints at the influence of Ligeti, Xenakis and Berio. But far from being abstract, Wallin’s music often connects directly with the world around him, most notably in later works such as
(2004), a celebration of the power of cooperation,
(2006), based on speech patterns from Martin Luther King, and
(2007), which tells the story of the rehabilitation of child soldiers in Africa.
