ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Sceneries 25" is a collection of songs and music that were composed over 25 years. It has turned out to be a collage of events and sceneries from this time. It is both a social comentary on political events, such as the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa, as well as personal reflections on love and life on three continents. Sceneries 25 consists of eight albums that are arranged into thematic clusters.

"Songs of Conscience" is the first album. All the songs were written in South Africa. However, they seem to reach beyond the South African context and are really about human rights issues in general: about the suffering of the poor and the politically oppressed. How do we deal with this suffering, and how does it confront our conscience?

The songs of the second album, "Songs of Struggle", were also born and bred mostly within the pre-democratic South Africa, but they are specific to the country and deal with the struggle so many South Africans have waged for liberation.

The third and fourth albums are about personal experiences. "Songs of Belonging" express affinity to specific places on three continents, Africa, Australia and Europe, or ponder about feelings of home and belonging. "Songs of Comfort" feature love songs and tributes to loved ones.

The fifth album, "Songs of Spaces and Walls", bears German songs. Compared to many other countries, living in Europe as compared to other places, opened up new spaces of mind and thought, but also confronted walls of rigidity.

"Snapshots in a Time Vacuum", the sixth album, is a piano contemplation with a symphonic dimension. It evolved over many evenings as an effective lullaby. Each night the piece grew a bit longer and it seemd to be snapshots of different periods. These flashbacks seemed to be locked in a time vacuum, and to create this feeling the final piece is repeated, with the beginning and end tightly intertwined.

The seventh album, "Songs of Beyond", features a range of songs that surpass the previous songs in different ways, be it in style, theme, space or time.

The last album, "Kaleidoscopes", turned out to be a 60 minute solo piano journey through all the songs of Sceneries 25, including some songs that were not included in this selection. The order of the songs is solely determined by harmonic transistions. Surprisingly, it tuned out that the songs journey through all twelve keys. "Kaleidoscopes" is also a tribute to the piano, as all songs were initially piano-voice songs. The atmospheres were changed through the arrangements and the piano became more of a background instruments, losing some of its eminence. "Kaleidoscopes" attempts to do justice to the piano's initial role by bringing it back to the foreground. It also closes the cycle of "Sceneries 25".
