Refshaleøen Tapes vol. I

Album. 16 tracks. 67'
Released: March 2020
Composed: 2018-2020

Denmark, like most european countries, is currently on lockdown because of the COVID-19 pandemic. All this time indoors brought me to check into some archive recordings. Mostly, live-recordings and improvisations from my home studio in Refshaleøen, Copenhagen. The recordings span from early 2018 until a few days ago and most of them were never meant to be "pieces" or "tracks". Yet there is something appealing about them, just because of that. Here, you will find some possible ideas for future tracks, "live-remixes" of previously released tracks, improvisations and some bleep bloop just-testing stuff. Listening back to all this music, I can't honestly remember how I did half of it. It almost feels like someone else's music. I like that.

I hope you like it too.
