Into the Deepsea of Sound...
The musical world of Gunnar Spardel: Tigerforest
There is a forest up in the arctic circle called Tigerforest. It produces more than half of the oxygen produced from trees on the planet. The forest has a very short growing cycle, just one month, and in that time it produces all of that oxygen. I was really moved by the idea that there is a forest that seems so far away, but is having a big positive affect on the planet.
Certainly music can also have such abilities in different ways. Music means much more to me than playing white and black keys together in some harmonious or disharmonious accordance and order. It's more than making impressive eclectic soundscapes or sequences with some content. Music is my life. Music is my playground of emotions and at each time the mirror of my innermost being.
The very first time I came into contact with a keyboard was already at the age of 12 when I began to take keyboard lessons. Unfortunately it took more than further 3 years till I finally came into contact with my first synthesizer. That was in late 1995. I was already very familiar with the world of electronic music for years. After nearly two years of pure "experiments" and technically not well equiped I started to compose my own music and today with a look over my shoulders, I see that was definitly the right decision for me.
Tigerforest's first CD "The Sound of Life" was released in 2006 on CDBaby and was seeing a re-release in 2008 through Amadea Records. The brandnew CD "Daybreak" will also be released through Amadea Records later this year.
