In The Elastic Track, commissioned by the Danish Broadcasting Corporation and scored for large symphony orchestra, Christensen has designed a fascinating ten-minute single-movement tableau that is informed by the manipulations of electronic music through purely acoustic means by densely layering multiple rhythms as well as through the use of microtones and extended performance techniques. After its premiere by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, no less a figure that the legendary Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, a revolutionary among 1960s European composers and now an éminence grise in Danish musical life, has declared that “One hears a new era in this piece.” (Frank J. Oteri, March 2012)
