New single: Game of Life
‘Game of Life' is a relaxing and inspiring new melody, symphonically built and inspired by technology combined with visualization of a mathematical world.
Listen and imagine how computertechnology can visualize a mathematical world and order through a musical expression.
Game of life is a “zero-player” game concieved by mathematician John Horton Conway (1970). The outcome of the ‘game’ is determined by its initial state, which then plays out by itself. The game is governed by a set of simple rules, which cells added on a grid must obey. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves. What makes Game of Life interesting is how even minor changes to the initial stage can change the outcome significally and accordingly rendering chaotic behavior.
Game of Life is an excellent example of the very special musical talents of Klaus Schønning – combining and visualizing a theme in a beautifully composed and played melody.

The 'Lydglimt Slideshow' from the late 70ies

In the summer of 2020 Klaus Schønning revealed in an interview, that his debut album 'Lydglimt' was only one half of the story. The other half being a series of slides that were to complement the music when it was performed live. The music was the result of Klaus' very first experiments with recordings with multi-track technique, while his photos were an attempt to create an audio/visual experience with the few technical means he had. Ever since that revelation, there has been a steady flow of requests to see those photos. Last summer Klaus searched through the archives, and found the old dusty cardboard boxes containing the photos, that no one had seen for more than 40 years. All the slides have been scanned and brought to life together with a new, shortened mix of the original 'Lydglimt' from 1979 for everyone to enjoy on YouTube.
The 'Lydglimt Slideshow' is both available as one 29 minutes long film and as individual tracks.
