Sempre Dowland

I'ts 450 years since the composer / lutenist John Dowland's birth, I have composed a work to his honor: Song Octet (SSAATTBB) String Quintet-guitar. The work is published with the support of Norwegian Composers Compensation and Musikkhusets Forlag A/S in Oslo.

August, 2013

Sempre Dowland

Since November 1. 2012, I have worked intensively with the work "Sempre Dowland" for two sopranos - two alto- two Tenors –two basso and string quintet 1 & 2 Violin-Viola-Cello - Bass and Guitar.

The work is a tribute from me to one of Europe's most important composers - John Dowland, which in many ways set the agenda on European instrumental with his band (Concort)

Dowland was a divinely gifted lutenist at the Danish / Norwegian king Christian IV's stab. His compositions are characterized by melancholy / beauty and texts that are worthy of Shakespeare.
I have composed this in great respect of Dowland. Reconstructed (I re-arranged Shall I sue-Weep You More Fountains-Fine Knacks For Ladies and Flow Not So Fast Ye Fountains, and written two new compositions in honor of John Dowland who lived from 1563 - 1626 - (450 year anniversary this year)

The composition will be released on Musikkhusets Forlag AS in Oslo in September, where I previously published works with the guitar in focus. Musikkhuset, Odd-Arne Jacobsen
In November 2013 this project will be presented at University Of Tromsø, Faculty of Fine Arts and TIK Tromsø International Church Festival.

John Dowland project

In 2013 it`s 450 years ago lutenist / composer John Dowland was born. He worked as a musician at the royal castle in Copenhagen for Christian IV. Despite the time that lies between us and his life, he is conveniently close in time and space. Many of his songs could have been written today, with themes such as life, wonder and impermanence.

Thanks to a grant from "Komponistene Vederlagsfond", I will send a greeting to my colleague with my music with some quotes and references to his music.
Im currently working on the composition `` Sempre Dowland “ (always Dowland) on the occasion of the lutenist/composer John Downland’s 450 years anniversary. The instrumentation will be a String Quintet (two violins, a viola, a cello and an upright bass) and a song octet. ( 2sopr-2 alto -2 ten . og 2 basso ) and guitar.

    Burglary at Odd-Arnes home

    Odd-Arne has suddenly experienced what all musicians dread; to be robbed of instruments that one holds dearly. The burglars gained entrance to the cellar's storage room by forcing their way through two metal doors. Among the stolen items were his first guitar. This was a beautiful jazzguitar and a present from his mother and father in Troms¯ 1962. It is a brown Hofner with a golden G-clef engraved at the head.

    Also stolen was a Norwegian-built TELRAD guitar amp, also from the early sixties. It is red with a grey front and adorned with golden braids.

    All the stolen items were insured, and can most likely be replaced. But the mentioned Hofner guitar is impossible to find a substitute for, due to it's great sentimental value. Odd-Arne is now recovering from the experience by contemplation. And installing an alarm system.

    Below is the full list over all missing items. If you have any information that could lead to the recovery of any of these items, please contact Odd-Arne as soon as possible.

    • A TELRAD (red and grey) Norwegian made guitar amplifier from around 1962
    • A brown Hofner jazz guitar
    • An orange Rayhorn banjo (gitarbanjo)
    • A Roland GR 700 gitarsynth
    • A Roland Jazzchorus 77 guitar amp
    • A black flight case for a Supertwin Reverb Black Face
    • A Roland GR 1 guitarsynth (with expanded memory)
    • A guitar rack containing these modules: Boss Stereo Noise Supressor NS 50, Intellifex guitar processor, Boss ROD 10 fuzz & overdrive, Boss RSD 10, Boss RPW 10, two Roland Volume pedals EV-5, and six SS5l pedals

    Two Norwegian press clippings briefly recounting the incident.
