First I thought I'd make this available as a free download. Then I thought it would be nice to make a 7-inch single from it. I couldnt choose so I decided to do both. Not the smartest move, business-wise, but so be it. So enjoy it for zero money, or spend some money on a sympathetic little slab of vinyl.
The first track of this single is an edited version of the music for the 10-minute dance piece 'as much as it is worth' by Marta Alstadsæter & Kim-Jomi Fischer. They asked me to do it (after some extra last-minute funding) a week before the première, so time was super short... but it worked out quite nicely, if I may say so. And, especially for my standards, it's a mildly euphoric track!
The second track is a further developed sketch of an alternative proposal for the score. It's bit less cheerful, with some noise thrown in for good measure.

I go to sleep listening to this song, and I wake up in a beautiful dream state in the morning. It also helps me focus while I write and work. I was heartbroken when this song disappeared on Spotify, so the hunt began. I must say, this song was very difficult to find, but all the more rewarding when I found it. Jonathan Tilley
