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.

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.

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!
