Carsten Pieper Why do they have so many great musicians in Norway? But that's fine with me, of course!

Nice sounding live recording (24bit flac, btw), just the man (on guitar or accordion) and a one-woman "pocket symphony" (to qoute Modi) on cello.

To not choose Rubbles for the 3rd time as favourite track, I picked House by the Sea for this one, but the Rubbles version is great, neverthelesss ;-} The Spider song would have been another worthy candidate! Favorite track: House by the Sea.

I used to think that more is always more. For many years, my main challenge was to transform bedroom-born songs into stage-ready creatures, fit for the ears of hundreds and thousands.

Lately however, I have tried to reverse that process. I skinned off the band, removed instruments and sounds, shrank the crew and production until there was only the bare bones left: me, backed only by my pocket symphony Katrine playing the cello, and my own guitar and accordion.

What happened was magical. All of a sudden, the songs sounded like they did the moment they were born. Gone was the production and hours of studio time, adjustments and compromises. Only the lyrics, the stories and the bare melodies that sparked the ideas were left.

For a short year now, I’ve had the joy of touring like this: on top of the songs’ back. A new world to explore, and it’s right there in my hands.
