Per Boysen is one of Sweden's leading live-looping musicians. The marriage between real-time interactive electronics and traditional musician performing skills is his burning interest. Honouring the improvisational approach by playing the live-looping meta instrument made up by electronics, electric guitar, tenor saxophone and self-made electromechanical devices.
"With improvisational performance and experimental music PBoy has a background highly suitable for bringing out the orchestrations implied by David Cowley's animated spoken word performance" (Noden Inspiration).
David's work covers areas such as strategic management, organisational cultures and change, personal development and leadership. He is now progamme Director for the Ashridge Diploma in General Management. www.ashridge.com
Acting as the Curator, Swedish organisation Noden initiated this unique collaboration. World class speaker David Cowley teaming up with experimental live-looping musician Per Boysen. This collaboration may seem to merge worlds widely apart, such as the strict organisational theorist's world and the seemingly floating world of the bohemian musician. But on a closer look you will find that they share many essential elements. As David and Pboy experienced, you have to rely on the very same human qualities such as intuition and dramatic techniques. It doesn't really matter if your performance aims at creating music in front of an audience or taking action as a leader in a modern business organisation, they both require similar skills and approaches. This can sometimes appear paradoxical, for example being focused on what you are trying to do and at the same time being open to what is happening around you.
