Peter Schwalm Barcelona sound and music

A new album, M U S I K A I N - conceived and recorded in Barcelona - has been released by J. Peter Schwalm.

Brian Eno says, 'Sometimes you hear something and think: "Now this is how the modern world feels to me". Peter's music is like that, capturing excitement and speed and ambiguity and even wistfulness and melancholy... a complex emotional palette which feels to me like real life.'

“I wanted to have a fresh approach to voices,” says Schwalm, describing the concept for the album, “as well as a balance between instrumental and vocal pieces. The songs were intended to produce the effect of a short film on the audience”.

For implementation, the composer and percussionist found and invited outstanding young musicians in London and in his own neighbourhood in Barcelona.
