This album is breathtaking. I love every one of these pieces. Perhaps also because they evoke some early childhood and sense memories from a time when I was obsessed with movies like Bröderna Lejonhjärta from 1977, or the Czech/Polish fairy tale and kids shows they had on German tv in the 70s/early 80s :) I don't know why, the music has nothing to do with these, it's may mostly be an internal reflection.
There is a moment, four minutes into K1, where the dense haze breaks and you're granted a delicate, beautiful respite. It lasts half a minute, and then you never hear this again. Moments like these, and the weight they hold, makes this simultaneously the most gorgeous and harrowing album I have ever heard. contrapaasso
