Per Dybro Sørensen has – since writing music for the theater in the 1980’s – tried to develop a personal way of writing music. These efforts resulted in the work ”Like a transient punctuation” in 2012. This work develops a technique of variation, based on the infinite row of Per Nørgård.

In 2019 his work Conversation in Spring won the 2nd price in “2nd Beethoven Composers Competition at the Buda Castle” in Budapest.
