From the program:
VIND MÅNE ANDE is an attempt to combine four people and their music in three words. The immediate links to the music are woodwinds and the moon’s monologue from Blood Wedding (Federico García Lorca). For the not so immediate connections, a jogging trip is recommended in the moonlight.

Wind In My Ears

Quartet in three movements for woodwind – oboe, clarinet, bassoon, bass clarinet – 1996
1996-05-24 Christinae Church, Göteborg – first performance

The piece is built around the contrast between short and long. The first movement is short with essentially long note values; the last one is also short but with short notes. The center movement is long with a mixture of both short and long tones.
There is a theme that is varied through the piece – a kind of variation work in three movements.
The title relates to the nature of the instruments.
