Programme Note
Per Nørgård Musaic (1969),
MUSAIC (1969) - for brass ensemble and electronics

Among my compositions for brass band three (“Backlight”, “Massifs” - crystals - cascades”, “Musaic”) all belong to a three-dimensional space. Thus “Massifs - crystals - cascades” was proclaimed from a mountainside towards the audience in the Norwegian town Tromsø, and “Backlight” to the special room of the new concert hall at The Music Conservatory of Jutland, Denmark.
“Musaic” was composed in 1969 for the inauguration of Edition Wilhelm Hansen’s new branch in Århus, Jutland. Short movements for brass were intermittently heard on the street. In the concert hall all the movements were however heard - also the ones already played; by means of a continuous tape individual fragments of the ´street music´ were gradually collected into one concluding, uninterrupted piece lasting all in all 10 minutes, a mus(a)ic/muza(i)k…
A synthesis can be heard on a CD from 2007 (by the Brass Ensemble of The Royal Danish Conservatory, Jutland), with the note that the work might be much longer when performed live.
