Bio:

The drama production has won a number of awards internationally, and is directed by Eva Staaf, with whom Andreas has worked in several contexts. The music is released and licensed in collaboration with Astrid Lindgren AB.

When Andreas was commissioned to compose the music, he had just finished building a daxophone (an instrument invented by the German improvisational guitarist Hans Reichel). The lamenting murmur of the instrument quickly became a central component in the portrayal of the evil tyrant Tengil, and also expressed the presence of the dragon Katla.

Amanda de Frumerie has illustrated the bustling tranquil landscape that makes up the album cover.

This is Andreas Söderström’s second full-length album on Flora & Fauna. “Om solen väl går upp” was released in 2016. He also was a part of Sjöarna and released an album together with Rickard Jäverling called Adelsö.

“Söderström rör sig gärna nära berättelsens mörka grundackord. De mollbetonade melodierna är vemodigt vackra och byggs upp av plockande spel på ruan, dova kontrabastoner och smäktande stråkar och gnistrande pianoarpeggion.

I avslutande ”Då var jag inte längre rädd” skapas en sakral stämning med änglalika röster. Vacker musik till berättelsens slutord: ”Jag ser ljuset Jonatan”.

Tobias Magnusson, HYMN.se, betyg: 7/10
