about

Alt I Stykker continues a trajectory into an expansive and
highly personal sound-world.

A remarkable series of compositions hewn from a multi-faceted mirroring of musical elements and life events. The beautiful, and at times disquieting, Alt I Stykker will be released by No Technique on June 13th.

Alt I Stykker (All in Pieces) resonates perfectly as a title of these three new works from 
Peter Jørgensen. It hints at the emotional turbulence of their genesis and their passage into being through a rich complement of approaches and collaborators.


This album furthers Jørgensen’s continuing evolution as a composer by both delving deeper into and augmenting processes explored on 2014’s full-length release Gold Beach. A key album in his oeuvre, Gold Beach represented a move away from computer-oriented sound-works in favour of acoustic 
 instrumentation and snapshots of improvisation. 

Alt I Stykker broadens this palette with the classically trained voices of Anna Caroline Olesen and Morten Grove Frandsen. The pieces are additionally unified by a conscious intention to explore 
 melody as a compositional element.
Originally scored for small ensemble, Alt I Stykker features contributions from Zelienople’s Mike Weis (drums) and fellow composer Johan Carøe (synths), alongside Nicole Hogstrand (cello), Pauline Hogstrand (viola) and Claus Højensgaard (trumpet). 

This close-knit unit of musicians allowed individual contributions to spontaneously evolve whilst in- terweaving with Jørgensen’s composition.

These works coalesced thematically through a live performance at Copenhagen’s Frederik's Church in late 2018, a tribute and lament which explored the aftermath of loss. Although a deeply personal 
 album, Alt I Stykker transcends its origins to provide succor through the emotional conviction and 
 honesty with which it is executed.
