In 2008 I made a commission work for the Trondheim Jazz Festival who asked me to do something related to skateboarding, in which I used to be very involved. I made a kind of “urban ballet” of improvisation called “Freewheeling”, based around a few themes on the relationship between movement and music. The ensemble included two improvising skateboarders in a “pool”, with a band on the ledge consisting of me on keyboards and electronics, Arve Henriksen on trumpet and electronics, Håvard Stubø on guitar, and Erik Nylander on drums, in addition to the improvising DJ Tomas Smågesjø.
