My next album is scheduled for release early next year. I will post more details closer to the release date. It's been a very quiet year (hence the long stretches between updates), but I've been busy painting and recording as always, trying my best to tune-out the madness of this increasingly unbalanced and turbulent world.
I've added a few more recent paintings to the Gallery: Quiet Room #4, Recluse #3, The Other Room #1, The Other Room #2.
There is little to report at the moment, so I've kept the older news (below) until it is time to announce my next album. Happy Autumn to all.
Tor Lundvall “Come North With Me” (Painting In Progress)
My 3rd box set entitled "Nature Laughs As Time Slips By" charted at #7 on Brainwashed's Boxed Sets of the Year list for 2016 and #9 at Hyperallergic. There are two in-depth and insightful reviews posted at Santa Sangre and Teutonkhamat. My latest interview is posted on the CLRVYNT website.
"Nature Laughs As Time Slips By" is available from Dais Records. For more details, please download the press release by clicking here. There is also a nice article and some sound samples here. The oil studies for the art edition, entitled "Portraits From The Violet-Blue House", can be viewed here: Group 1 / Group 2 / Group 3. Copies of the art edition sold directly from me also included a special handmade art card. The complete edition of 50 cards can be viewed here. The art edition is now sold out. Below is my video for the track "Garden Path" from the album "The Violet-Blue House":
Dais has also manufactured an enamel pin of my diamond Moon/Tree logo (limited to 100), as well as a limited edition T-shirt featuring my standard "flowing branches" Moon/Tree logo. I am not selling these items directly, so if you are interested in obtaining them, please click here and here.
My thoughts and condolences to the friends and family of Ania Mehring, who sadly lost her battle with cancer earlier this year. Ania was the wife of Maciej Mehring, founder of the excellent Zoharum label based in Poland. Last year, I was invited to contribute an exclusive track to a special compilation benefitting Ania entitled "Where Words Fail, Music Speaks". I am proud to be among the many caring musicians who provided such beautiful music for her cause. Please visit the Bandcamp page here.
