Solo percussion and tape.

‘Self-portrait 1984’ for solo percussion and tape was commissioned by the Swedish Concert Institute for a solo tour Samkopf made in Sweden in 1984. The work is composed for a percussion instrumentarium and a tape of modern everyday sounds from the house where Samkopf was living in 1984. In addition to noises made by the freezer, refrigerator, toaster, the opening and closing of doors and traffic in the street outside, the instrumentarium has been expanded to include cups, saucers, bottles and a desk lamp. Everything is strictly ordered in acccordance with numbers taken from the date of Samkopf’s birth and the year 1984. ‘Self-portrait 1984’ was given its first performance at Lundåker School in Gislaved, Sweden, on 5 April 1984, with Samkopf playing percussion and Gunnar Berg-Nielsen as sound engineer.
