Ljudbilden Boelja - Embers - LP
Release date: 14 September 2023
Behind Ljudbilden and Boelja you'll find the melodic ambient veterans Kristofer Ström and Markus Clemmedson. They've been following parallell musical paths since at least 20 years and are now finally releasing their official collaboration project with Malmö Inre.
Embers is an improvisational meeting where they explore the borderland between electronic and acoustic instrumental music. The album is a conversation where sounds and rhythms are woven together. Each piece is an expression of the interplay, from dreamy soundscapes to dynamic pulses and minimalism. Embers is a celebration of the creative process and the interplay between the musicians invites the listener to engage deeply in the musical space.
The musical exchange and collaboration between Kristofer and Markus has been going on in various forms for more than 20 years. Kristofer under the moniker Ljudbilden & Piloten and Markus as part of Vidderna, together with Niklas Tjäder. In recent years, the joint work has focused on improvisations in the studio in Bjärred, where the sound has become more stripped down and spacious. The work on the album Embers is the result of 24 hours of improvised recordings.
