Spotted: Ola Jacobsen – Celeste
Today I’m presenting you with the track Celeste by the Norwegian composer and piano player Ola Jacobsen, based in Barcelona. Ola found his passion for playing the piano at the age of six and thought himself how to play.
The track Celeste was released as a single on the 14th of April, 2023.
Tell us something about your track Celeste!
Celeste is a delicate, reflective, and somehow compassionate piece. It is a hopeful one too, and it conveys a message for everyone: ‘No matter what’s going on in your life, everything fades. It will be alright in the end’. The compositional process started with a simple motive, and then Ola’s natural melodic optimism took it from there. The B section is an attempt to create some contrast and surprise, and introduce some conflict into the composition, which will be resolved in the re-exposition at the end.
Thank you very much for this Ola!
