(Per Boysen & Costas Andreou, 2008). This album is the first fruit of
a long distance collaboration between Per Boysen (Sweden) and Costas Andreou
(Greece). Defying the physical distance, the duo's music has its space
and time delimited by human interaction in a dynamic musical meeting.
Filters become notes and notes become filters, as two brushes drip colors
over a 3D canvas. We like this album so much that we gave it a dedicated
web site with full pre listening clips and cover art display: http://www.stockholm-athens.com/
Civitas Urbanus (2007, boysen musik
media internet). 2007 is an important year. For the first time in human
history more people are living in cities, compared to living in other
areas on the planet's surface. I let this amazing fact inspire me during
the difficult task of cutting down one year of musical exploration to
less than one hour. This is the second album I'm releasing under
a Creative Commons license and it's available online as donationware,
as paid download and as CD
(2006). This album's sub title Abstract Experimental Yet Catchy does well
catch the music and concept. Thirteen solo pieces for tenor sax, alto
traverse flute or the electric guitar. Interactive electronics played
by feet while the physical instrument is played by hand and mouth. Voilà
- instant freeform electronic Da-Da! This is the first album I'm releasing
under a Creative Commons license and it's instantly available online as
