… funny, but since the skateboards are in slow motion I want the music to be as well. Call me silly. (Most people do.)

“I always loved the skate way of life and I think it is still my mind set. Being a composer has many things in common with practicing some ollies, slides and grinds on a skateplace: Hard, sometimes painful work resulting in an ability without any obvious value. Yet, it feels like total freedom.
When I am on the “Trini”, a beautiful, urban, self-build skate place, created on the fundament of a demolished high rise building in Dresden, I feel romantically close to those free spirits.”

GONE composed by Sven Helbig
Played by Fauré Quartett, MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony conducted by Kristjan Järvi

Getting the oboe back out… not playing for a month wasn’t the best idea.
