With bare materials, often only one note at the time, Olof Cornéer tries to capture what he thinks is the essence, defying notions of what is simple or complex.
”White noise contains all music ever written. In a way it’s very complex. But if you listen to it, it’s simply noise. When something simple becomes complex enough it becomes simple again. I want to make music that is simple, like an indivisible point floating freely in a chaotic world”, he says.
Olof Cornéer creates electronic music – under the name Night Gestalt – using similar ideas.
