Rolf Enström

Rolf Enström

Rolf Enström (1951, Sweden) has studied in Göteborg and Stockholm, concentrating on music studies and theoretical philosophy. He has also studied electroacoustic music at Eelectronic Music Studio (EMS). Enström has also taught composition at among other places Biskops Arnö Junior College and EMS.

Enström’s work comes for the most part from his ability to combine playfulness with a strict, stubborn exploration of timbres. Though his compositions are often base on ideas sprung from literature, news and philosophy, timbre is also a great focus. Through the years he has fought for electroacoustic music as a means of expression. The combination of instruments and tape forms another important direction in his development as a composer.
