Per Åge Pedersen

Norwegian Composer and Guitarist

P o p

Per (o) Pedersen is a Norwegian composer and musician.

I write classical music in the style of modernism. My influence is strongly founded in west European composition tradition, both Italian and French modernism and German avant-gardism. In the last two years I have also been working with other genres.

My background is from metal and rock bands in my teens and and later classical music. I began playing classiscal guitar when I was 15 and have my education in classical guitar and composition from The Norwegian Accademy of Music. I studied guitar under Geir-Otto Nilson and Sven Lundestad, and composition under Asbjørn Schaathun and Bjørn Kruse.
