Interspaces – my tenth album – presents 11 tracks of largely electronic instrumentals with abstracted vocals, drawing from electronic, popular, contemporary and global musics. The initial idea has been to explore a new kind of beauty and sensitivity, spatiality and intricacy in music. The album features contributions from soprano Viktoriia Vitrenko, bassist Omar Harb, and musician and Ginette player Petteri Mäkiniemi.
Influenced by diverse ecosystems and worlds between vast empty landscapes and pulsating global metropolises, the music is furthermore inspired by the idea of globality and mundialization as well as the city of Paris where the album was produced between 2020 and 2022.
A digital-only release, the album is available on all major streaming platforms as well as on Bandcamp where the release includes higher quality audio download and extended album artwork.
