Live at Modern Sound Culture, Barcelona on 13 December
Presenting his new album 'Disconnected'
Broken connections, incoherent narratives, escapes from reality. Jan Blomqvist’s new album disconnected is contradictorily set in a time of constant connection. It is about our day and age, it is about this generation. The world is becoming increasingly linked, via Email, Facebook, Instagram.
The album explores the meaning of being disconnected in 13 tracks: What does it mean if people are living in two different worlds: the real and the virtual? How do these worlds intersect? What happens when virtual connection makes you feel lost in real life? What happens if real life fades, overtaken by the glamorous instagram filter selection, if the person on the selfie is much more interesting than the one pushing the button?
The album release will also be ceremoniously ‘disconnected’ with it’s entity broken down as the tracks are released over the summer in form of three mini-albums. That fragmentation reflects the circumstances of its making: Disconnected was recorded, produced and written - in cooperation with Felix Lehmann and Ryan Mathiesen - in various locations around the globe: from Iceland to New York, through California and back to Berlin. In autumn the complete piece was released, finally connecting the disconnected narrative, visually and auditorily. Two years after his debut Remote Control, that led Jan Blomqvist and his band around the world, he now reports back with an album that stylistically falls in line with the distinct Blomqvist sound, just more grownup and forward-thinking.
Jan Blomqvist will present his album on December 13 on the occasion of Modern Sound Culture. Modern Sound Culture is the event that receives a new vision of a relaxed and precise electronic music. The highly elaborated acoustic compositions and their representation in live format and in a friendly schedule invite to a new experience in which the sounds of the artists are the protagonists. WhoMadeWho, Stavroz, Rone, Christian Löffler, Parra For Cuva and Satori & The Band From Space have already gone through this cycle that takes place in La 2 de Sala Apolo in Barcelona.
