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!

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.

Mea Memoria (In my memory)

Today would have been my father’s birthday but he’s long gone. This song does not tell a story but rather describes a feeling, the memories of what once was and eventually will be forgotten. But as long as I’m alive, the memories of my father will never be forlorn.
