The piece is based on speeches by Martin Luther King, which Wallin has subjected to frequency analysis and then converted into purely instrumental music for the quartet to perform. The end result is a powerful work that represents the extraordinary intensity of King’s speaking voice.
Wallin is also the featured composer for the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2006/2007 season. The orchestra will perform six of Wallin’s works over the season, and last May they hosted a Wallin weekend devoted to his orchestral and chamber music.
