Ørjan Matre

There’s a young composer in Norway whose pieces are already being performed in his own country and abroad: his name is Ørjan Matre. A recording of his “Four Miniatures for Orchestra” has been uploaded on Youtube, and I’ve included it in a playlist, but he has composed quite a bit more over the last several years – for instance, “Logitech® Noise” or “Händel Mixtapes,” which is quite inventive musically. As the titles may suggest, he is interested in the instrumental use of technology.

On his website he has posted audio recordings of some of his works: the following pieces are drawn from it.

Logitech® Noise.

A Leaf Falls in Loneliness.

Händel Mixtapes.
