    CREATIVE COLLISIONS I
    Kali Malone and Stephen O'Malley

    Amanda Flodin, Mikael Englund, Daniel Ralphsson, Karl Peter Eriksson, vocal ensemble

    The compositions of Kali Malone implement specific tuning systems in minimalist structure for pipe organ, choir, chamber music ensembles, and electroacoustic formats. Kali’s music is rich with harmonic texture through synthetic and acoustic instrumentation in repetitive motions and extended durations. The music emits distinct emotive and affective hues which bring forth a stunning depth of focus.

    ”Don’t Say A Word” is composed for voice and three musicians. The piece has both written instructions for specific sounds and actual words, which is unusual since GGR Betong usually don’t work with texts. This short piece can be described as a vocal drama, sort of a lullaby-gone-wr

    GYÖRGY LIGETI (1923–2006)
    Volumina (1961–62)

    It is possible to regard Ligeti’s classical work for organ as an early example of noise music. If so, it connects well with GGR Betong’s early concerts from the start in 2014, when the ensemble played nothing but transcriptions of old and new noise pieces which didn’t had any kind of scores but only existed as recordings. After building up a repertoire with music by Zbigniew
