Der reisende Herr Nilsen

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off

Der Komponist BJ Nilsen ist ein Wiederkehrender in den  „Klanghorizonten“. Die Klänge der Natur sind für ihn ein zentrales Thema, und dass er sie vorwiegend nicht in beschaulicher Distanz aufzeichnet und verarbeitet, belegt seine Langspielplatte „Massif Trophies“, die am 26. August bei Editions Mego erscheint, als Vinyl und Download.  Derzeit weilt er noch im Urlaub in den Dolomiten, aus denen er mir beiligenden Schnappschuss schickte.

„Celebrating 27 years as a recording artist, Massif Trophies is his first solo release for Editions Mego. In 2015, he set off on a month-long hiking trip in Gran Paradiso to explore the acoustic environments in the alpine landscape. Drawn to the monotonous and physical effort that mountains and high altitudes contribute, this became one of the main inspirations for Massif Trophies, reflecting upon the perception of the landscape during several hours of physical difficulty, let alone rapid weather changes, horizontal thunderstorms, and rock avalanches. Massif Trophies is also about the scope of details and perception of the path and the myth of the mountain as the accursed or sacred place. The five pieces contain narratives based on experiences and recordings from the trip.“
