#13.11 TOMAS RAAE : HIS NAME IS JOHN

 
His Name Is John is a collection of improvised pieces of music that, after recording, are processed and produced with atmospheric sounds and a few other instruments. The intention was to create a large and open, almost sacred, soundscape, while maintaining the clear immediate references. The album is strongly inspired by especially 2 great masters; Charlie Haden & John Coltrane.

#2.10 The Malibu Beachband ; Tougher Than The Rest

‘ To cover Bruce Springsteen is a complex task, because he is one of the biggest living songwriters. The version of “Tougher Than The Rest” from the Copenhagen-based project

The Malibu BeachBand is an interesting take on a sombre and desolate song, consumed with the difficulties of love. It deconstructs the conventional notion of masculinity. Enjoy…💥💥💥💥 ‘

#2.4.2020 Weird Times / Lots of Work

Just finished 2 records. Both are sent to mix and master now. Pheew. Feels super. They are both centered on improvisation, in an ambient environment. The one around my lovely old double bass, the other more pure and minimalist and pure in its expression – called ‘With The Dim The Darkness Came, and is published on the label Kontentum. Looking forward to release them both <3
