A journey under the stars:

 

A journey under the stars is a musical interpretation of a long journey, a journey built on conviction and hope. Through deserts, wilderness and mostly under a starry sky. The purpose of the journey is to find and salute a forthcoming king, born in simplicity – in a stable. A king who cares about salvation for the world. And those travellers on this journey don’t need any further presentation. The three wise men.

This album reflects a future where man has been contacted by extraterrestrials. Planet X is based on the possibility of life on other worlds.

 

An album that challenges different styles of music but still with the frame in the electronic music area. This album concerns our ancient history and its awakening. It can be seen as a Pre album to the larger "Roots and legends from the north" Which is also a production of Johan Tronestam.

This album was created in 2011

2012

Roots and legends from the north

2013

Impressions

2013

This CD is partly inspired by Arthur C. Clarke's 2010. The idea of how the extraterrestrial super-intelligence is traveling at the speed of thought. Being able to move around and admire the endless universe fireworks. " I'm Already there" - Dave Bowman

This album concerns an ancient time when man appeared and moved around in the northern areas of the world. With this album I want to connect the subject to instrumental tones based on electronic music. I've been trying to give the music a sense of mystery, folk tones and still maintain the electronic basis.

 

"Roots and legends from the north" contains 10 tracks about a time that today exists only in our minds, traditions, legends and dreams. My wish is to invite you to an inner journey, into something that caught me and inspired me to create this music.

Impressions is Johan Tronestams sixth album, this is only released digitally. It includes some of the composer's deep inspiations sources.

A journey under the stars is a musical interpretation of a long journey, a travel built on conviction and hope. Through deserts, wilderness and mostly under a starry sky.

Released 06 December 2013

 

This album started back in 2002, it was a far-reaching work that stopped up and resumed again several times. All tracks were completed January 2005. The album has remained since then with no thought of publication; the reason has been the quality of the sound. A new mastering was done in 2013 but without altering the former recording. The journey under the star is released as a free album.

The term Compunctio

Gregory the Great (ca 540–604) spoke about compunctio, the holy pain.

The grief somebody feels when faced with that which is most beautiful i

s both a reminiscence and a fore-taste of the divine world.

Originally compunctio was a medical term that described intense

physical pain, but when Gregorius used the word he spoke

about a spiritual pain.

The bittersweet experience stems from human home-lessness in an

imperfect world, human consciousness of, and, at the same time, a

desire for perfection.

This inner spiritual void becomes painfully real when faced with beauty.

There, between the lost and the desired, the holy tears are formed.

The album Roswell has been in my mind for many years, to create a music album about the incident in New Mexico 1947

The first track for the project was created in March 2014

The incident in Roswell has created echoes in the rest of the world. From a news program on the radio 1947 to a world full of ideas, witnesses, facts, documentaries, books, movies, conspiracy theories, etc.

I take no personal position, but I'm full of questions that have not received any answer despite government information and denial.

Why should witnesses, residents, military personnel and radio owners be less credible than the state?

Obviously, these were a lot of unrealistic witness stories, but aside from them persists ordinary people who experienced something different to the everyday life

My thoughts often go to the RAAF Major Jesse Marcel who had to bear an unacceptable load for life

Johan Tronestam introduces his third album at Syngate Records under the title "The Long Journey".

This album has been a work in progress for many years. I started working with the first track in 2008.

"The long journey" is influenced by the astronomer and author Peter Nilson (1937-1998), and by Harry Martinson´s space poem "Aniara".

 

”The long journey” reflects a future where man has developed the possibility to travel to other stars. But not without misstakes. The journey becomes much longer than it was supposed to. Harry Martinson´s book Aniara ends in tragedy, with a broken spaceship out into the eternity without the ability to slow down. "The long journey" is not a one-way ticket, these passengers will see the starting point of the journey again .

 

I dedicate this album to my mother who suddenly had to leave this earth in January 2016 - Thank you for everything.

Johan Tronestam

The album "Arthur went above the clouds" has been a magical journey and conceptually been formed by Arthur C. Clark's amazing books and vision of the future. Clarke has also been a great assistance in the development of technology for space missions.

 

This album contains 9 tracks that were selected out of 20 tracks created for the project, so the album might get a sequel

 

The album is dedicated to Johan Tronestams beloved Father who suddenly had to leave this earth in March 2016 - he was a dreamer and full of ideas.

 

And to the author Arthur C. Clarke

Luther

2017

This album was created in Lemland/Åland 2015-2017.

It's about space and has a connection to my previous space albums and connects everything to an entirety - Space is a source of inspiration, a mystery that will give humanity a continuousunderstanding

The idea for the album Luther started in 2015 after visiting Wartburg. It was a mighty feeling to enter the room where Martin Luther translated the New Testament from Latin to German. The translation gave citizens the opportunity to have their own relationship with God and to reflect on the written word, which was not possible before.

This album is a musical interpretation of the historical person Luther at a time when everything was changing. Martin Luther chose the monastic life because of a thunderstorm.

He promised to give his life to God if he was saved. In 1507, Martin Luther was primed and 1508 he began teaching theology at Wittenberg University. He later ended up in a serious confrontation with the Catholic church. He despised the way the church ruled the people with greed and corruption, and held them in fear of hellfire. Luther believed that people should be able to have their own relationship with God, and the right to feel safe and loved.

 

My musical interpretation is not made to offend or hurt anyone. The project is an interpretation of what is historically documented. I have for example visited the Vatican City and Wartburg. It has inspired me.

Best wishes – Johan Tronestam
