Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Neoclassic, Contemporary Piano, Ambient Piano


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Rikard Mathisson:
I took piano lessons from when I was seven years old, and continued doing this until I graduated from high school. In the teenage I had the usual "play in a band" dream, and it never really grew on me, but unfortunately it made me put the piano aside and focus on the keyboard for many years. I even played in a fairly successful country band for a few years but finally laid of the keyboard carreer as a broke musician. However, my mid-life crisis woke me up and at the age of 40 I suddenly realized I needed to become the pianist I've always been. So out of the blue I started write piano music, to my own surprise, and there you go!


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Rikard Mathisson:
As a small kid, we had an old black upright piano with candlesticks and chipped keys at home. I started playing on that broken piano around the age of four and the connection was strong and real. My mother bougt a cheap polish built from particleboard which was my main instruments for twenty years. A little more than ten years ago from today I got hold of a beautiful grand old upright Zimmermann piano from 1906, which have taken the place in my heart where the piano of my childhood once belonged.


Nagamag:
What is most important with music for you?

Rikard Mathisson:
I believe strongly in connectling to peoples emotions, which makes the music have a value of it's own. I've once said that touching one heart would be sufficient for me, but now when I have reached out to ten thousands of hearts, I've realized that there are no such limitations. I want my music to reach out to people, that is the most important to me.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?
