From our Guest Book jesperelen
It was a very productive period in a beautiful place.
I came with a plan to try and write a new large-scale string quartet and completed it within three weeks. There seemed to be an energy within the walls of this charming historic building that released the creative urge with almost no effort. It is a place to which one immediately wants to return.
VICC has been a phenomenal experience – great place to think, write, soak in beauty and wonderful antique calm.
This has to be one of the loveliest spots on earth.
You have created the oasis for wandering souls – the composers, who come here to create, or – for peace – from various parts of the world.
Inspiration from the town and the island(s) is something simular to mental hospital, with a hard treatment.
It is really The Centre for Composers. Thanks for this wonderful time.
I came to the Centre for Composers
wondering if I was still a composer.
I leave with perhaps the best piece I have ever written.
Anyway, the piece I am happiest with. My time on Gotland has been the most unique experience
of my adult life. I hope to return one day, and not too far in the future, either.
This Centre is a miracle.

I think that every composer dreams of a place like this. Here you find all it is needed for composing: nice town,the sea, beautiful views, nice food,
all the necessary equipment to create wonderful music!
There are no words to express our gratitude to you! We were happy every moment here – in this unique place,
where ideal conditions for creation are united with the blue sky, the bright sun
and the sweetest in the world sea. We felt your love and care in everything,
even in the smallest things. And we shall never forget it.” “We wish VICC to remain
always such Paradise on Earth as it has been now!
