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!

 

Next up: Piano Improvisation

I’m currently finishing off my next piano track which is a piece of improvisation, ”Lake Piano Impro” recorded in late december.

While still waiting for the release of the stylish remake of Without a Name, stay asure that new music will come up every few weeks from now on, so follow me and you’re not gonna miss out anything!

My minor is my major…

I now and then get the question about whether I can write a beautiful song with only major chords (since the minor’s leads to the sad soft spot I guess..). I guess my short answer is: ehm… nope!

– Why?

Well.. for me; in the sorrow lies the fragile and beautiful. That’s also where I thrive. 😉

One Step Back is a Leap Forward

Sometimes looking back is the only way to move forward; The piano song I started out with – the melancholic ”Without a Name” – has developed beyond the original recording. So I will remake this, my debut track… I started the production project yesterday and you’ll be able to hear it within merely a few weeks!

The Producer; genres are lush…

As I said in the interview, most of the music that I both have produced and released the last two years is mostly piano centered pop in the style of Coeur de Pirate, or guitar centered in the style of Coldplay. But I’m beggining now to close the gap between written and released for the huge pile of piano tracks! They will soon be moved towards the playlists, hope you’ll be able to enjoy them soon…

ALL done so far is, and in the future WILL be present on my studio playlist ”Studio Mathisson – So Far”. Follow it right away, and you’ll never miss out a new song from my studio! That’s a promise!

You didn’t know this about me…

A friend of mine, Johan at Sleepy Songs, did an interview with me recently. And here it is…
