Info zu Zeitreisen
Sweden's Henrik Meierkord's main instrument is the cello, though he incorporates other stringed instruments and effect pedals to create his modern minimalistic ambience. ZEITREISEN is understated and graceful. The beautiful and mysterious string-fused soundscapes find emotional stimuli and tension within a melancholic soul. Meierkord has 9 solo albums and 13 collaborations including performances on Black Tape For A Blue Girl's THE CLEFT SERPENT (2021) and Aarktica's PAEANS (2023).
Swedish composer Henrik Meierkord‘s main instrument is the cello, though he incorporates other stringed instruments and effect pedals to create the modern minimalistic ambient pieces within the musical cycle of Zeitreisen (German for “time travel.”) The tracks are interwoven with a restrained Scandinavian melodic mixture of baroque medieval harmonies and neoclassic atmospherics as if pulled from a region that defines sorrow. The mood is long and sacred, understated and graceful, painting an impression of yesteryear to support a bleak folklore filled with life. The tranquility of the modest aural tapestries form dream-like compositions, elegant improvisations, and emotionally charged fragments building with gradual change and evolution. These beautiful and mysterious textures conjure up the concept of “time,” both modern and archaic. Meierkord‘s tonal romanticizing of string-fused soundscapes finds emotional stimuli and tension within a deep rootedness to the Swede’s melancholic soul.
Based in Stockholm, Henrik Meierkord‘s cello is his main instrument, though he also masters viola, double bass, & guitar. Bringing a neoclassical approach to his stringed instruments and effects, he has released 9 solo albums and 13 collaborations since 2018. Zeitreisen is Meierkord‘s first release for Portland’s Projekt Records, following his performances on Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s The Cleft Serpent (2021) and Aarktica’s Paeans (2023).
