  • Notes: Byproduct was written as a graduation piece from the Iceland Academy of the Arts. The piece is in three sections, the titles mocking and shuffling the order of the classical sonata form, all quite randomly juggling similar themes/motifs/chords. Quite neo-classical; Byproduct is a what it is, not really an intention, but a result. Premiered May 7th 2015 in Salurinn Concert Hall, Kópavogur, at the composer’s graduation concert from the Iceland Academy of the Arts, conducted by the composer.
