These posts are meant to cogitate my own experiences with musician’s focal dystonia, my own thoughts about the condition as I have come to view it and my own way of dealing with it. As a fair warning, I do not hold any claims to understand Dystonia from the perspective of any academic authority nor do I believe I am fully informed about the condition. I am simply a witness, a patient with the desire to tell a story.

The project has been generously sponsored by CEMPE (Center of Excellence in Music Performance Education) at the Norwegian Academy of Music.

I wish to thank the very important people who has contributed greatly through support and guidance.

Wolfgang Plagge, Tina M. Nilssen
