Info for Gravity
Italian composer and producer will finish the trilogy of his work on the theme of finding ‘home’ with the upcoming EP Gravity.
After the album Morning Hour which was a reflection on what home is, to project Grains of Gold, a more introspective and accurate description of the home, Gravity symbolizes the return to the roots and completion of Carlsen’s journey, having found his way back home.
The title alludes to what he describes as an “inevitable force – one that pulls you back to your roots, but also one that takes you on a journey to find ‘home’ within yourself through life.” It’s also a record that contemplates the loss of stability and certainty and finding our place in a world beset by anxiety and unease.
I'll tell you what, never in my life I thought I would be releasing my own music. Until 2015, when I was so amazed by the live shows of Steven Wilson and Nils Frahm and I realised that music was the way to go. I composed all songs over the summer 2015, inspired by the fairytale landscapes of Ravnholm Skov, in Denmark.
Music was my first and greatest passion; I started playing instruments when I was only 6 and I was into artists such as The Beatles and Eagles. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, exploring many genres. I've learnt the technique by studying other artists and my life was mostly about playing in cover bands.
Recently, I started teaching myself how to play the piano; this time, instead of learning through the study of other artists, I decided to follow a different approach that led me to acquire the instrument technique by composing my own songs. At the same time, I have found an interest in sound design and the creation of diegetic sounds, by listening to real life objects and understanding how they might fit into a musical composition.
I see music as an inspiring form of art, where the beauty of the imperfections and spontaneity of a performance meet the perfection of a thoroughly planned production. This is why, in 'The Journey Tapes', you will hear electronic sounds and orchestral arrangements, mixed with the cracking of the mechanical components of the piano and whatever goes on in the room during the recording.
This album contains no booklet.
