Ambient Piano


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

Rikard Mathisson:
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:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Rikard Mathisson:
Queen "Bohemian Rhapsody"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Rikard Mathisson:
William Ogmundsen "Blithe and Bonny"
