"I wanted to do something spontaneous and immediate, with just piano and vocals.", Gustaf Lundh (Fiktion) explains. "For the last two years, old liturgical music has been a great inspiration for me. Silence has become a more important element in my work."
There is a beautiful simplicity to Forma, where Fiktion's introverted side is channeled through accessible melodies.
"Särskilja" sets the tone with a meditation in Swedish on independence and belonging. "BWV 934" is a unique interpretation of Bach, with a touch of impressionism and a thoughtful hesitance absent from traditional interpretations.
Title track "Forma" starts with a droning piano and features a poem sung in latin, but in the end its solemnity is relieved by rippling ornaments. "Rum 212", finally, is an interpretation of a song by Swedish band Sällskapet, with a melody evocative of Swedish folk music.
In these four songs, you’ll find solemnity, tranquility, self-reflection and hope.
