Sekundenglück 1:45

In meinem Leben hat sich seit ein paar Jahren eine Tradition eingenistet, die nicht schön ist: Gegen Jahresende häufen sich schlechte Nachrichten. Dazu gesellt sich gänzlich unromantisch der typische Vorweihnachts-Stress, den ich sonst immer so wunderbar ausblenden konnte. Und in diesem Jahr, neu, gesellte sich noch eine große Portion Krankheit dazu.
Umso schöner, wenn dann eine gute Nachricht als kleiner Lichtblick in all dem faden Schneematsch-Graubraun aufglitzert:


"Magnus Öström will soon release the first album as a leader of his career.
“Thread of Life” will get released worldwide on February 25, 2011.

After more than two years of silence Magnus went back to his favorite studio, the Atlantis Studio in Stockholm. He joined up with his old friend, sound engineer Janne Hansson, to record some brand new compositions that he had written during the period following Esbjörn Svensson´s untimely passing and the dissolution of e.s.t..

For the recording he put together a new and sparkling band, which includes Andreas Hourdakis on guitars, Gustaf Karlöf on keyboards, and Thobias Gabrielson on bass. All of them great and unique players from the music scene in Stockholm.

They first got together during the summer of 2010 to jam in Magnus´ own little studio and he immediately felt very comfortable playing with them, interpreting his compositions and complimenting his style of playing with their own strong personal sounds. Everything fell into place. In early October the band was finally ready to record and between 4 and 7 of October intense sessions took place at Atlantis Studios.

The title of the album ”Thread of Life” came quite naturally to him, as Magnus explains: ”’Thread of Life’ is the energy that keeps everything alive and also gives me the spark for my music. But, we have to be aware, that it is only a thin thread that can be cut off any minute, so we better take good care of our time here on Earth and the people around us and of course also the environment that surrounds us.”

The sound of the album immediately reminds of e.s.t.
It demonstrates how much Magnus´ drum sound has also been part of the signature sound of e.s.t.and although Magnus had not composed for e.s.t. at the time, his melodies are similarly intricate, interwoven and building towards a climax. ”In the end all the three of us always worked on the arrangements of Esbjörn´s melodies, so depending on the song mine or Dan´s input could be substantial”.

On this album you can find Magnus in nearly every chair: composer, arranger, drummer, producer. ”To show what my musical universe is all about I needed to do it that way. Also because I really love composing and to be in the studio producing. And I couldn`t have asked for a better line up to record with.” Magnus is very proud of the result."



Ich freue mich.
Wie eine Schneekönigin.
Und höre zur Feier des Tages gleich noch ein paar Mal Dan Berglunds Sailor Waltz, solange mein kleiner Mümmel-Sohnemann friedlich ratzt.
Ahoi!
