Reflections is the new album by Swedish composer Christoffer Franzén, now available on all major streaming services through Deep Elm Records.
“The songs on Reflections are all based around atmospheres, emotional electric guitars and piano. I wanted to create something that sounded beautifully cohesive, something that you could put on and listen to from start to finish, something to help relieve feelings of anxiety or difficulties sleeping, something to help you drift off. There are 13 tracks in total, but really it’s one single piece of music (37 minutes long) that stays within the same space,” says Franzen.
Franzen continues, “The majority of the music on this album is grounded firmly on earth, in contrast with my Lights & Motion catalogue which tends to have an ascending feel to it, constantly reaching upwards. I wanted it to feel like a warm and safe space, like the soundscapes are hugging you, abstractly speaking. My hope is that people will put on the first track, and then listen through to the very end in one sitting. Not thinking about what song is playing, just get lost in the music and the sonic textures. I think we need to shut the world out every now and again, and this will help you do that.”
