Borealis Ung Komponist 2022 started in the first week of September, and the four composers met for the first time together with the ensemble they’re creating music for, as well as their mentors both physically and on screen. The participants had four intense days together – one kick-off day to start the project and three workshop days together with the first mentor, Johan Sara Jr and TABULA RASA

Composer and santur player Mirsaeed Hosseiny Panah is one of this year’s participants. His interest in different genres has led him to study both classical and jazz music, as well as classical music from his home country Iran. Mirsaeed is a newly graduate from Norwegian Academy of Music and is starting his journey as a composer by participating in the Borealis Ung Komponist program.
