Notes & Reviews:

Sveinn Ludvik Bjornsson was born in Reykjavik, and studied composition at the College of Music under Atli Heimir Sveinsson and Thorsteinn Haukssson. He also spent time in Poland studying with, among others, Witold Lutoslawski. The "Egophony" concept is this: five soloists play against polyphonic recordings of themselves playing their instruments. Therefore, the works truly represent the active and reactive thinking and responses of performers as well as the composer, a kind of "music of the id," an ultimate form of self-expression.
