Sven Wunder – Natura Morta
Natura Morta expected to ship by August 3rd.
On Natura Morta, Sven Wunder explores art as a bridge between nature and the human perspective, synthesizing the approach of his past two albums as he delivers 11, bright, vibrant compositions. He also ups the ante, pairing a chamber orchestra with a jazz ensemble, in an album at once indebted to the best “Music Library” albums of the 1970s and a commentary on them, from the viewpoint of a young, talented music producer whose all-encompassing approach to music is as informed by his love of nature as of obscure and awesome old records.
Piano Piano tell us that Natura Morta is “….a musical celebration of material pleasures that also serves as a reminder of the brevity of human life.” It’s also a reminder that, in 2021, the best and brightest making new music can also remind us that there are myriad scenes that briefly burned before flaming out, and this album will serve as jumping off point for the intrepid music fan to indulge in music they’ve not yet discovered, but must.
This album was produced with financial support from the Swedish Arts Council.
