Playing improvised music is a gift. It’s alchemy, chemistry, interlocking heartbeats and sometimes a struggle. A lot of it is about ambience. Usually Kungens Män record at home, in busy Stockholm. This session was different. ‘Trappmusik’ was recorded in the legendary Silence Studio in the deep woods of Värmland and is a perfect example of how much setting actually effects the music made. ‘Trappmusik’ is the Kungens Män chill out album. It has its peaks, but the overall vibe is calm, introspective and vibing off the fantastic recording room that has hosted so many giants (Älgarnas Trädgard, Träd, Gräs Och Stenar, Bo Hansson…). Use this music however you want. Play it loud or put it on as background music. Lie down on the floor or dance to it. The woods are singing.
