2021-06-16As the first recipient of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s Grand Music Award of SEK 300,000, the agency has chosen to notice the arranger, composer and conductor Hans Ek from Uppsala, with the motivation: “… for his music art – a passionate melting pot of unexpected encounters, historic resonance and unique soundscapes. Hans is a musical bridge-builder who creates new, solid pathways internationally and artistically.”
In the film portrait, he talks about his driving forces and the choices that have led to the art he creates, through the music and in the meeting with the audience.
