This is the first post from our new co-worker on Meadowmusic, Stefan Klaverdal. He is going to write about electronica, minimalism, classical music and many other genres. Stefan is a Swedish composer and sound artist working with acoustic and electronic music, performance and interactive sound art. /Ed.
Rhythm, noise, glitch sounds, drones and bass are some the components of the sound on Codespira1’s album ”Artefact”. The music makes me associate to Ryoji Ikeda and electronic minimalism, but it’s quite dynamic and moves smoothly between different emotional states rather than punching you in the face. Some of the songs could very well fit on the dance floor and the final track, ”Artefact – On My Feet”, is like an electric guitar solo or a mystical abstract song. Music for both meditation and dancing, perhaps?
Codespira1 is Mattias Petersson’s alias as a solo artist (he’s also one half of the duo There are no more four seasons, if you missed them – look them up and listen!). ”Artifact” is his first release on the Dutch label Moving Furniture.
