Revered Swedish musician and contemporary classical composer Henrik Lindstrand returns with a captivating new video for Søndermarken, taken from his recently released sophomore album Nattresan.
For his second album, Nattresan, Henrik has returned to his roots, embracing the instrument he’s played since the age of just three – the piano. Created during the midnight hours, the record communicates tranquility and peace the artist no doubt experienced within the suburban surroundings of his Klanglandet studios in Copenhagen, where he is now based.
The ten compositions on Nattresan, many of which came to be by way of hour-long, meditative improv sessions, are united in celebrating a sense of calm and quiet, and the people, places and moments that hold this scarce currency for Lindstrand.
“The album title means ‘night travel’ or ‘night journey’. I wanted to take the listener through the night, beginning with a lullaby and then going into various modes, in the borderland between an awake and dreaming state. Most of the album is written at night and contains a nocturnal spirit” said Lindstrand.
Utilising sounds generated by only a grand piano and an upright piano (some sounds manipulated digitally, some by hand and many left untouched), the album sits in contrast to its childhood-revisiting older sibling Leken. Uncovering pivotal memories and super-8 glimpses from days gone by, Nattresan offers a set of acutely close-range observations of ‘the now’, crafted within a delicate framework, designed with great care to not spook the moment.
