"ALCHEMIST DANCES" is an 18 minute work for solo percussion, electronic music and (optional) video. It is a playful exploration of the connections between the practices, rituals and symbols of modernist new music, and the practices, rituals and symbols of the occult, with an added third element of the potential occult uses of old technology such as reel-to-reel tape recorders and the Sinclair ZX81 computer.

The work was commissioned by Norrbottensmusiken for percussionist Daniel Saur.
