En Liten og En Stor (eng.: A Little and a Big One) was written for musicians from the BIT20 Ensemble in Bergen. The piece explores the sound colour and timbres of the instruments, by themselves and together. Some examples of these sounds are how the vibraphone brings out the coldness of the sul ponticello in the violin, and the bass clarinet combined with rolled low marimba creates a sound best described as a warm and fuzzy woolen blanket.
