about

‘Transformation’ challenges the boundaries of human and machine, the physical and the artificial, the feasible and the impossible. The result is a thoughtful and true emotional storm where the piano forms the basis for an opposite pole between sound and playing technique. When the sound is real, it is played with inhuman technology. When played by hand, the sound moves outside the spectrum of the physical piano. What role does "lying" play for the listener?
The music was created for and was originally performed in connection with Anna Kristensson's exhibition ‘See Through’ (gallery FRANK, Malmö 2019). The fact that ‘Transformation’ is now being released on vinyl is the result of a loving collaboration between Ljudvägg, Arlövs-based Purlieu Recordings and Lamour Records (Gävle).

Ljudvägg (Wall of sound) has in recent years enchanted audiences with his unique feeling of combining technology and acoustics into an unmistakable sign. With the combination of piano and synths he creates sounds that will easily roar and then come together in a gentle harmony which lies as the foundation of his distinctive tonal expression. Behind the project we find Malmö-based Filip Forsström.
