Leken was my first solo-album and it was made during the winter of 2017.
It has taken forty years, almost to the second, to achieve full circle, finding myself re-seated in front of my childhood-home piano in Sweden. The intention has been to create a personal document
with the use of piano as the only sound source.
"The album echoes his cinematic background and can in part be understood as a companion to a non-existing Lindstrand documentary, as evident in the track names, practically geo-tagging key locations from his past and present life. At the same time, the album comes from a tradition of Nordic free improv, and throughout its duration Lindstrand maintains a balance of melodic structure that has been carefully loosened to avoid overtaking the listeners ́ own storyline and imagery."
