Praise for earlier albums

annual growth rings

Mats Edén (strings)
Stefan Klaverdal (electronics)

This album had a long time coming. Almost like the slow growing of trees. In many respects, you can say that we were inspired by being close to nature, as most of the recordings and playing have been in beautiful woody surroundings in the southern parts of Sweden.

The music, sounding perhaps like an otherworldly image-rich blend of Swedish folk music, minimalism, electronic and romantic tradition, was recorded during several improvisational sessions. All music was created live on various string instruments and computer. The instruments are mostly violin and viola d'amore, and the processing was made in ableton live without any prerecorded elements whatsoever.

The magic of the foliage and mixed forest is captured precisely in breathtakingly beautiful "among opening leaves" - Hanna Höglund, Sydsvenskan

"abscission (falling of leaves") [...] this gorgeous piece wraps the listener in auburn and gold.- a closer listen

I am in a bad mood today, but have finally found something that fits my feelings: the album by Edén and Klaverdal. - Håkan Engström, Sydsvenskan



”[Klaverdal, ] one of the currently most innovative composers make a stop in the genre [New Age/Ambient] it is without any trace of irony, by using as little as possible from the toolbox yet being beautifully accessible.”
– Jan-Erik Zandersson/Universumnoll

"A rare direct communication between clear timbres and direct melodic sense. Very nice!"
- Martin Nyström, DN
