Experience Duplication

Listen to Jazz while working through New York? Listen to Reggae while chilling out on the beach?

Sometimes we want to duplicate the experience. We want to match the soundtrack with the environment. But sometimes we want to differentiate the experience so we level out the stimulation. We may listen to Reggae while walking through New York and Jazz when relaxing on the beach.

Music is so powerful it has the ability to add to or subtract from the experience. When we remove the music we’re at the mercy of nature and man-made distractions.

“The title describes what I think is good improvisation: those moments when I manage to let loose, just let the music play itself, almost from the spine. I decided to try to make another album in the exact same way as last time, but with clearer, almost symphonic tunes. And I feel that at least some of the music in my head made it to the recording that day in Sofienberg church in February this year.” – Håkon Kornstad

Beautiful.
