Following “A Timeless Odyssey” and “Romantic”
Anders Miolin’s new album
Original compositions for the 12-String guitar DODEKA
When it comes to music, Anders Miolin incarnates the modern renaissance man: world-class performer, instrument developer, arranger, composer, and academic.
In this new album, Anders presents a world premiere recording of his original compositions in a new style that could be called—echoing Anders’ own words—”Imaginism”:
“Imaginism” was a Russian avant-garde poetic movement starting after the revolution of 1917 – it was known, for example, for poems without verbs that evoked a more powerful emotional impression.
The compositions included in this album were created in the second half of 2020 in symbiosis and dialogue with my unique instrument – the 12-string ΔΩΔΕΚΑ guitar, to date the only one in the world. In spite of this I always hear and think beyond the instrument, composing for an orchestra of universal sounds. Although the pieces can be described, it is important to let the poetry speak for itself – experiencing the emotional imagery rather than “understanding”.
“Visions” is Anders Miolin’s third solo album with Prima Classic.
