about

Exciting music! Dark and atmospheric, emotional and melodic with a symphonic touch.

Most of the music is improvised, where the layers of sound is tunes in different pitches. This is especially used for the revelation titles, where use of different pitches transforming the sound tones to be more intense. Just small adjustment in the music can make big chances. Different layers of sound detects and bring forward hidden musical structures and add more emotional dephts in the music.

****
Sverre Knut Johansen has arrived with a new album. So fare just for downloading. Ancient Prophecies has ten tracks with titles that leads to creation, rebirth and hopes. The transition between tracks are smooth, so one can hear the album as a continuous work. Such portrays the music as well. Moving electronic textures who varies gradually. Powerful timbres, who might benefit to thin out a bit here and there to create a greater variety. But Sverre Knut Johansen holding on to his musical project. His ideas are recognizable. It's good to hear a composer who has found his musical language and who will not be misled by trends. This album is recommended.


Sverre Knut Johansen har kommet med et nytt album. Så langt kun til nedlasting. Og slik blir det vel mer av etterhvert. Ancient Prophecies har 10 spor med titler som fører tankene hen til skapelse, gjenføding og forhåpninger. Overgangen mellom sporene er glidende, så man kan oppfatte albumet som et sammenhengende verk. Slik framstiller musikken seg også. Glidende elektroniske klangflater som varieres langsomt. Mektige klanger, som kanskje kunne tjent med å tynnes litt ut her og der for å skape større variasjon. Men Sverre Knut Johansen står fast på sitt musikalske prsojekt. Hans ideer er gjenkjennelige. Det er godt å høre en komponist som har funnet sitt tonespråk og som ikke lar seg forlede av trender. Albumet anbefales.
