Revered Swedish pianist Henrik Lindstrand has released his brand new video for ‘Dungen’ directed by Daniel Buchwald, via One Little Independent, communicating emotions through a soothing and intimate universe that seamlessly blends genres into his own ecosystem of sounds from the piano.
Speaking about ‘Dungen’ Lindstrand explains “this piece was initially a commissioned composition for the health and meditation app AIO. I wanted to write a minimalistic piece with lots of space and time for reflection and focus. The inspiration came from a small grove (Dungen means grove in Swedish) nearby my house as a child where I could hang out on my own when I needed to find some peace.”
Lindstrand’s career is littered with accolades that make up an impressive and eclectic resume. A keen musician from a young age, he graduated from the Rhythmic Conservatory in Copenhagen where he became engrossed in the local musical culture and lent his skills to a multitude of acts as a studio musician, live player and string arranger. This lead to him being “adopted” into Danish rock band Kashmir, one of Scandinavia‘s most prominent and acclaimed bands with whom he toured the world extensively as their keyboard player and guitarist.
During his tenure in Kashmir and until the band’s hiatus, Henrik worked with seminal profiles such as Tony Visconti, Andy Wallace, David Bowie and Lou Reed, whilst building a career alongside as a highly regarded composer for television and cinema. Recent accomplishments include the score for the ITV Nordic-noir series Greyzone, the soundtrack for the hugely successful and award winning Lego game, Builder´s Journey and a film score to Undtagelsen (The Exception) to be released this summer. Recent noteable solo performances include sold out concerts in Copenhagen, The Heartland Festival (DK) Silent Green in Berlin, Soho House London, Union Chapel London and Pianeo Festival Munster (D).
