Greetings Earthlings, I come in peace
« on: May 05, 2016, 12:20:16 PM »
Hi

My name is Lennart Östman and I'm from Sweden (actually an obscure part of Earth). I have my background in progressive rock and Swedish folk music and have been at this game for about 36 years. In recent years I have gotten more and more into orchestral music and have found that it's not as strange as I have thought. The real turn around came when I orchestrated movement from a Mozart symphony with familliar synth sounds. Hearing that music with sounds I was very familiar with made me see that this was something I could do. If I can do it good is another question.

Here's a sample of my music: https://soundcloud.com/lennartostman/clearing-the-dust

An oddly instrumented piece for string orchestra and clarinet

Looking forward to being a part here.

Hi Lennart. Welcome to the group. Looking forward to your contributions...

The perceived object...is not a sum of elements to be distinguished from each other and analyzed discretely, but a pattern, that is to say a form, a structure: the element's existence does not precede the existence of the whole, it comes neither before nor after it, for the parts do not determine the pattern, but the pattern determines the parts: knowledge of the pattern and of its laws, of the set and its structure, could not possibly be derived from discrete knowledge of the elements that compose it.

That means that you can look at a piece of a puzzle for three whole days, you can believe that you know all there is to know about its colouring and its shape, and be no further ahead than when you started. The only thing that counts is the ability to link this piece to other pieces...

Hi Lennart, and welcome to the forum!

My wife and I spent some time in Stockholm and Gothenburg last year. Sweden is now officially one of our favorite places!
