New Release “For Ingar Gustavsson”

Great news!

My new album “For Ingar Gustavsson” is now out via Slaapwel Records.

I am incredibly proud about releasing this album and being a small part of the
the fantastic idea/vision of Wim Maesschalck’s that is Slaapwel.
The hard work and creativity of both Wim and of Tom ten Voorde who made the artwork and layout
has been totally inspiring and astounding to see. Thank you guys so much!

For Ingar Gustavsson by Johan G. Winther

I’ve been friends with Johan Gustavsson for a long while now – first through his music as Tsukimono (glitchy noisy drone dreamy electronics stuff that somehow stayed undiscovered by too many people) on labels such as Mechanized Mind and Komplott. Later on I organized some gigs for his instrumental rock band called Scraps of Tape. Some time ago Johan found a battered cd-r with old recordings he made for his grandmother, playing them to a couple of friends (who some of you might know: Nils Frahm & Peter Broderick) – who encouraged him to do something with those beautiful recordings. After some months of thinking and tinkering he finally sent me “For Ingar Gustavsson”. A lengthy album, humble, restrained and precise and with a lot of respect. Imagine Arvo Pärt as a bedroom musician, laptop processing his Für Alina pieces with the same understanding and confidence that he originally composed them. Stretching them out into wise, vast wintry landscapes. Embracing life/eternity like only the elderly can. You never fell asleep so calmly.

CD comes in our traditional Stumptown Arigato Pak + stitched picture, with one-of-a-kind xeroxed/screenprinted artwork by Tom ten Voorde and custom made cd slip case. Click below for pictures.

      • I’m listening again, and reading the insert–autobiographical, I assume. I glad that the battered CDr was found and recovered. This (and the sentiment connected to it) was too precious to be lost.
