The title especially relate to the liquid feeling of time.

Repetitions, sequences and patterns slowly changes between each other, displacement of the tempo by accelerating step by step or freezing the tempo in a nearly statical felling of time – maybe a feeling of long lost times, which lives on in our remembrance and is blending with our presence right now.

In Liquid... is dedicated to Bjarke Mogensen, and is an instrumentation of In liquid... (accordion concerto, second version) for accordion and symphony orchestra.

Titlen betyder: ”I flydende...”, og den henviser især til den flydende fornemmelse af tid.

Gentagelser, sekvenser og mønstrer ændres langsomt eller flettes ind og ud imellem hinanden. Tempoer forskydes; bliver hurtigere og hurtigere eller fryser fast i en nærmest statisk tidsfornemmelse – måske en fornemmelse af en svunden tid, som lever i vores erindring, og som blander sig med vores tilstedeværelse her og nu…

In Liquid... er dedikeret til Bjarke Mogensen og er en instrumentation af In liquid... (akkordion koncert, anden version) for akkordion og symfoniorkester.

Expert reviews

International Record Review (July-August 2012)

... I don’t recall previously hearing any music by the Hans Abrahamsen-student Martin Lohse (b.1971) – painter and poet as well as composer – but I shall certainly be keeping my ears open from now on, since his 16-minute In Liquid... is unassertively lovely...
... Lohse knows how to caress the ear and stimulate the mind at the same time: In Liquid … is all the more touching for the understatement of its emotional burden. ...

As a part of this “flow” Lohse explores poly-tempi at several places in the score, calling for the accordion to accelerate while the orchestra remains at a constant speed to thrilling effect.

In Liquid, another commission by Mogensen, is radically different. Martin Lohse's work is almost a study in slow motion. Lohse draws out every single note both from the ensemble and the soloist. The sensation is similar to trying to run underwater. And the enforced slowness of the composition makes the listener pay closer attention to the music as it passes by. An effective work, and one that completely removes the accordion from its popular roots.
