Dear Professors,

Ben Richmond here, frikonst graduate from 2013-2014. "Delirium," a violin and electronics work I wrote for Ljudvågor, recently was reproduced by a team of dancers and performers from the New York City Ballet. I am honored by the experience of watching this music come to life again.

A string player in the NYC Ballet found "Delirium" from a video of the piece I posted on Youtube seven years ago. This movie and performance from seven years ago was made possible by the expert guidance of the faculty and staff at Gotlands Tonsättarskola. I am very thankful to all of you for helping make this happen.

I think often about my time at tonis and it brings back good memories of studies and friendships. You have changed my life in many ways and I am grateful for it. Thank you.

Here is the video, which was recently shared by the NYC Ballet Facebook page:
