Spotted: Frerick den Haan – The Academic Narrative

Today I’m presenting you with the track The Academic Narrative by the dutch composer and piano player Frerick den Haas. I have written about both Frerick and his music before, so please check out this Behind the piano post to get to know Frerick better!

The track The Academic Narrative was released on Frericks latest album, which is released today (on the 7th of April, 2023).

Tell us something about your track The Academic Narrative!
The track is literally the opening track as it paves the way for the rest of album. It depicts the opening setting (the narrative) of an academic life on a dark academia college somewhere in England. However, I am not running the entire movie for the listeners, but like to share some fragments with them of how it could look like through various settings that comply with a typical college setting. Think of boat races, libraries, illuminated groups, books and more. Funny anecdote, I found out a couple of months ago that a lot of my listeners are very font of dark academia subjects. I concluded that without knowing at first that I also belong to this group of like minded people. Therefore this album is dedicated to those self-proclaimed dark academist that see the world a little differently than anyone else. 

Thanks for sharing with us once again Frerick!
