Even as he emerges onto Denmark’s new music scene as a major new voice, Matias Vestergård is a rarity on it: a composer fluent, flexible, prolific and poly-stylistic who draws on genres ranging from hymnody to cabaret while probing some of the basic theories of sound and its production. The music recorded here was written during Vestergård’s years at the Academy of Music in Copenhagen, charting a process of self-discovery described by the composer as ‘my younger self trying to deal with the serious classical music heritage I love.’
