Some sounds and rhythms are ancient: The auroras, the waves and the wind on the coast, even the fishermen and their catch – sea eagles soaring above. Fishermen have settled along this coastline for hundreds of years.
Think about it for a second: There were powerful rhythms and cycles in nature long before there were people here to be inspired by them. Beyond modern music, beyond the laptop, they are waiting to be rediscovered. That is, basically, what music producer Jonatan Brown is here to do.
Looking back at that night under the northern lights, Brown says: “The way that it moved was slower. When I noticed the way the light pulsed, I immediately thought: ‘Oh, okay, now I know.’ It’s almost like a tempo that I could use, that I could hear in my head”.
