Info for Trust
During his career, Anders Hagberg has proven his musical prowess as an innovative and virtuoso improviser of flutes in genres like jazz and world music. With the new album TRUST, he takes his innovative expression to a new level with cinematic vocals, suggestive grooves and enchanting melodies. He writes: The music for this album was originally created in interaction with visual artforms, such as dance, pictures, video, and sculpture... For a number of years now, I have carried out artistic research at Gothenburg University s Academy of Music and Drama. I have been looking at what you might call musical states: tonal spaces constructed by musical modes. In particular, I have focused on tone color in melody playing and the role of silence in musical expression. My work on states, sounds, and silences has informed all of the music you hear on this album.
