Auf seinem Album „Stitches“ schließt Nils-Petter Molvær Frieden mit sich selbst

Since his 1997 debut album "Khmer", Norwegian sound painter Nils-Petter Molvær has fought just as many inner battles in numerous editions of his music. With sometimes painful directness, he revealed the contrast between his gentle and his aggressive side, which often clashed abruptly. This personal conflict was expressed differently on each album, sometimes subliminally, sometimes offensively. On his new CD "Stitches" the trumpeter seems to have made peace with himself. Sure, there are moments here, too, in which things get mighty, but these are peacefully embedded in a continuous maelstrom that gets by without harsh breaks.
