for kannel or harp and string orchestra
Déjà vu (2010). To organise material, I used a programming tool, where I set and change parameters, to get more raw material, which is then processed and changed. Orchestra have several starting points: Syncopated pizzicato (later this is also played sul ponticelli) follows the 'highlights' of the kannel part, to highlight them further. This creates an accentuated pattern that recurs in certain sections. This is why the piece is also called "Déjà vu", because there are several materials that occur from time to time, but slightly changed each time. So you get that recognizable effect (but it's real, not an illusion). These "points" marked by the orchestra are orchestrated in tutti, the harmony follows the series I have used as a basic material.
