“You are welcome! Entre sans frapper….as they say in France”. That’s how my e-mail conversation with Christian Kjellvander ended a few days before we meet in his house, near Ystad in Skåne, in the southern part of Sweden.
It’s mid-June and days are longer than ever in the year.
I’m in a beautiful cottage close to the sea where Christian is about to build a recording studio to make his new album this summer. While I’m shooting him in this green field, his choice just seems obvious to me :
Silence. Infinite landscape. And the ocean breeze. Time can definitely stops here.
After the shooting, while having a coffee, I notice a luminous Earth globe standing on a wood beam on the very center of the house : “When you work here, alone, during the long cold winter nights, having a look to this blue ball sparkling in the night make every composing or recording problem becomes more relative.”
Chrisitan Kjellvander’s new album is out on November 10th!
