Brand New Day – Feb, 28

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

Rowan, Two Souls – Four Hands

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.

Enjoy the first four handed from Rikard Mathisson and Sleepy Songs joint venture project!

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.

Before Music – Improvisation!

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.

Released Today: Without a Name!

Hooray!! As of today, you can listen to this new song! The first of many solo piano releases , I’m reaching out to you with this soft piano song that soothes the soul, teeling a sad story within the music.

Currently only available on Spotify but yet many more to come!

The saddening look of an old abandoned piano, once loved but now forgotten – the image lingers in your mind; Seeing this will leave few untouched. This song is about a piano’s soul, waiting to go home. It has no name, the label have fallen off and noone knows where it came from. Hence, the song is named “Without a Name”, just as the story the music tells.

Rikard Mathisson writes piano music similar to : Yann Tiersen, Michael Nyman, Nils Frahm, Béatrice Martin and other soft piano music creators. Follow this blog for latest news!
