Microclimates III-VI was originally four sound installations spatialised in 3rd-order ambisonics and later remixed for concert performance. Each movement attempts to capture the total-senses experience of four Western Norway locations during a field trip in April 2007.


Microclimates III-VI was realized in 2007 at the composer’s studio and premiered on September 1st, 2007 during the Sleppet project in Bergen (Norway). The piece was commissioned by the organisation Grieg-07 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Grieg’s death. The work was first released in 2009 on the disc Sleppet, +3DB (3DB 006).
