Upcoming: Brand New Day – Release date February 28th, 2020
Yoga, Relax, Meditative, Chill, Positive – Piano, Acoustic
This piano piece gets you relaxed and positive, the stress will pour a away as in a summer rain shower – leaving you focused and relaxed, but not consuming any energi to listen in. It works really well during stressful work or just to wind down for a moment. I had help from a reference group to get feedback and they are looking forward to this release, using this for Yoga and work! Even the cats fall asleep and “pours” out of the chair down onto the floor when they listen to this (true story!)
This is one of the tracks from the upcoming EP Breathing Underwater, release date March 20th, 2020. If you want to pre-save this EP right now, you can do it here: https://sonderhouse.ffm.to/breathingunderwater
Inspired of the work of Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm, a few months back I got the idea- and suggested to my friend Johan aka Sleepy Songs, that since we connect deeply with the piano music, we could try to do some cooperative work.
I suggested the names Rowan and Elder as the name of the project, and soon enough the first single Rowan was finished. A little more than a week back we got it released with some help from The Sonder House, and it’s hitting the playlists by now and is gaining some attention.
This is Rowan – you will find in on your favourite streaming service. Just look for Rikard Mathisson or Sleepy Songs. Here are links to Spotify and Youtube.
Single: Rowan – Planned release date: July 5th, 2019
“Rowan and Elder” is a collaboration of Sleepy Songs (Johan Eckman) and Rikard Mathisson, with two pianos and four hands. Both pianists have over 50,000 combined streams each month. Releases together with the New York brand The Sonder House.
The single “Rowan” is part of a planned series of piano tracks in a collaboration inspired by Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnald’s work.

Releasing my first track today from my current theme “Insomnia” – “Will you join me in the night”. 🎹
Follow me into the land of dreams, to the world beyond the unkown, with this dreamy piano piece…
Upcoming release date: Thursday, May 30th, 2019.
By now, we’ve all finally had to accept the inevitable – all is coming to an end 😊 The saga of Game of Throne is finally over and forthcoming Monday nights meets an unknown destiny…
“The night” expresses many things, both in life and beyond…
However, in a few weeks, my next piano track “Will You Join Me in the Night”, completely unrelated to GoT of course but stil raises the question. Will you join me in the night – in this song? Blue eyes or not 😎
This song is a place to feel restful and in peace. The night expresses many things for us, both in life and beyond; although this song in particular captures the melancholics of suffering from insomnia, but it also relates to the question why we dream – will we meet in our dreams? And after this life, will we meet on the other side? It raises the question what is the night for you?
This song is also part of my upcoming EP “Insomnia”.

To my joy, my inspired “Lake Improvisation” was just added to this inspirational play list. Hope you’ll find the inspiration through music just like I do. All the best /Rikard
In the beginning, man knew nothing of music, although there was noise of nature. And there was silence. Probably the silence inspired to the first attempts to make music, born from the human inner being. So then there was improvisation. And then music!
My next release ”Lake” is a step back to the origin of man. Finding the music in nature itself, I spent some time by a distant lake where there was no sound but my inner flow, on a beautiful winter day.
Hence, my next song is a piano improvisation piece, created from nothing and without any editing. Being true to the inner flow, just rec and play, and it became this ambient and beautiful piano solo piece.
“Without a Name” was just featured on another perfect-match playlist, Maisonnevue Music’s atmospheric solo piano list “Peaceful Piano Melancholy”. Find yourself a restful place and enjoy!
Just got some great news – my latest piano release Without a Name just got featured on this great playlist from Karmaloft: Peaceful Piano – Beautiful Relaxing Piano Sounds!
