Fantastic news, my project ”Pjäxeröd två punkt noll” has been granted support from Musikverket! So much looking forward to making this real in the fall 2022!
Here you can read a recent interview which reflects on my thoughts of the last 1 1/2 years.
In Swedish only, sorry.
The musical collective of Thymeshift are now expanding the term ”big band music”. Carefully selected guests/composers are invited to join the universe of Thymeshift to create a powerful and enchanting music that reflects the times of today.
Since the start in 2010 Thymeshift has been treading the borderlands between rock/jazz/electronica.Together with Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson the group released the album ”Beyond Horizons” in 2015 and the latest release ”Dark Lights” 2021 concluded the collaboration with Danish keyboardist Katrine Amsler.
In 2019 the idea of putting together a larger band with selected favorite players came about. A ”Thymeshift United” project.
With support from Musikverket, the project became reality in October 2020 in the midst of the pandemic, but before the restrictions fully kicked in. The repertoire of the band was revitalized with a different feel.
Added to that, the new members brought their own tunes which created a dynamic and unique sound where the sum became larger than its parts.The band performed a tour in Sweden which was concluded by an intense day at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg where this actual album ”Music Outside Boxes” was recorded.
