This track is about looking out from airplane windows and seeing the top of the clouds as far as your eye can see.
Piano creates a perfect harmonic carpet, mixed with a cello... and the celestial choir that underlines the melody, makes it perfect for being in the sky.
Lars Jakob Rudjord is a Norwegian pianist and composer, based on the windswept Lista peninsula on the Southwest coast of Norway. With a haunting and icy sound that is truly Nordic, he is one of the foremost artist within the Norwegian neoclassical/modern classical scene.
Through his songs, he tells stories about the endless maintenance of old, one-cylindered boat engines, looking out on the top of the clouds from airplane windows, growing up watching his father painting landscapes, and everything in-between.
His latest album, Indiepiano, was recorded in Studio G Brooklyn, New York with producer Joel Hamilton, who holds multiple Grammy Awards and nominations, and features string players Hannah Eppersonand Katrine Schiøtt. His debut album, Clockwork, was described by the media as ”a musical journey that few, if anyone, has experienced before”, and The Vinyl Anachronist (US) stated that ”this is the best thing I’ve heard this year”.
