Today I’m introducing you to the Finnish composer and musician Julia Andersson. Julia has been fascinated by music in general, and piano especially, since she was a kid and has been playing the piano since the age of nine. As many others she started out with classical music, but in her late teens she moved on to play jazz and improvised music.
The track Tilia Cordata is featured on the EP Within, without which was released on 7th February 2020.
Tell us something about your track Tilia Cordata!
This is an emotional solo piano piece with a lot of expression that aims to tell a story. “Tilia Cordata” means littleleaf linden – the track is essentially about a tree going through the four seasons, constantly changing and growing. Nature (mostly the forest) has always inspired me when I’m writing music. The recording was done on a small Schimmel upright, with microphones close to both the piano strings and also the piano keys, to get an intimate and intriguing sound, which also captures all the details in the surrounding sounds of the piano.
Thank you so much Julia for sending me this track!
