Inspired by the pastoral beauty of nature and its evocative power that holds sway over him, When the Clouds very name can be left open to interpretation. When the clouds bring a storm in a summer sunset or retreat leaving behind a blue clear sky in winter these images bring an emotional significance that is described through the music. Joy or sorrow, hope or melancholy.
His main influences range from Northern European folktronic (Efterklang, Mùm) to instrumental post rock (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, Explosion in the sky) bearing in mind contemporary composers Nyman and Glass’ minimalism.
The Longed-For Season is a six track tapestry that reveals more and more of itself with each listen. Equal parts restraint, masterfully crafted tension and euphoric release that will leave listeners lost in thought.
