 Title: Polska for six percussions
 Alternative title: - a young persons guide to percussion
 Year: 1990-1991
 Duration: 6
 Setting: for six percussionists
 Comments: Yet another piece that suffers from practical implications. We had a workshop with Kroumata at the academy where we were supposed to write percussion music for children. I imagined a sort of "young persons guide to percussion" and wrote variantions on a swedish folksong for wood, skin and metal.

But the number of instruments used were enormous. I suggested that it could be used as an encore. A member of Kroumata said: "Then we have to ask the audience to come back in an hour."
 First performed: Not performed - played on a workshop with Kroumata
