raison d’être – collected works – CD is now available in my webshop:
From the press release:
As the title suggests ‘Collected Works’ is not an album with new
material of raison d’être (Peter Andersson). It is a collection of
tracks from between 1999 and 2010 that has appeared on various
compilations or other external projects. Suprisingly, despite the
collection fact, these tracks form together a unity like if they were
material for a conceptual album and presents a memorandum of a past.
Death, decay, melancholia and sadness is the common attributes and this
is also beautifully rendered in the images by Martin Bladh (Irm, Skin
Area) used for the artwork. His premature death masks sequence is based
on different aging faces of Peter Andersson and works as the perfect
facade for this kind of soundwise journey and exposure.
