|Catalog ek145: The Earthquake
The Earthquake (1994). The theme for the melody came to me in Bergen, Norway during a three day accordion course I had for young people. In a break came a blackbird near to me and sang so beautifully.
On the flight back to Stockholm I began to write the composition. Back home at Norrtullsgatan 10 when I same day went out on the terrace facing
the courtyard sat the bird on a television mast and sang to me.
After a week, the earthquake was written down and this bird disappeared.
