After providing the music to films such as the 2017 Cannes-nominee ”Push it” and the Guldbagge-awarded/ Prix Europa-nominated ”Skörheten” (Fragility), Stockholm-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Jakob Lindhagen releases solo album ”Paces”. Placing itself in the modern classical field, the music is centered around the piano with the addition of a string trio, occasionally unexpected instruments (the musical saw, zither), as well as both voluntary and involuntary sound experimentation.
”I was recording with equipment that wasn’t always functioning properly. For example, one microphone occasionally started to pick up radio frequencies. At times it was really faint and turned out to be a detail just adding to the overall impression, so I decided to keep it. Other times it was really ”in your face” and it inspired me to incorporate it into the composition”, Lindhagen says.
Deciding to record at home (and at the occasional weird hour), also resulted in some unexpected sounds, like singing birds, to make it into the final takes. ”Paces” is mastered by renowned sound designer Taylor Deupree and released digitally through 1631 Recordings (Nils Frahm, Library Tapes) and in a limited vinyl edition through Feeder Recordings (Tired Tape Machine, Tvärvägen) on September 22nd, 2017. In support of the album, Lindhagen and artistic collaborator Sofia ”Vargkvint” Nystrand will embark on a tour through Europe.
