The Hornplayer
From The Milky Way...

The beginning...

The idea was to make a record were the music was structured in a symmetrical way. The Intro and Outro are built around the same twelve tone row and they mirror each other in the order the notes are played - with rhythm, tempo and dynamics.

The tunes on this first album are going in pretty different directions and we were dabbling around with a lot of overdubbing. Some tunes are more progressive, others are more of straight rock-songs with bluesy roots, and yet others lean towards psychedelia.  Inspiration is fed by a variety of genres like rock & roll, blues, 60-s garage, jazz of all sorts, pop, modernistic music, experimental music symphonic rock etc and out comes music which can be categorized as progressive rock, heavy rock, psychedelia or even experiment pop.

One Touch Edit studio hosted the recording sessions of this project, and musicians for the project were recruited from the Stockholm scene.

Reviews

"En smältdegel eller en sammanfattning av influenser. Kan också kallas en av 2010 års mest spännande skivor. Pocketsizes “The Hornplayer From The Milky Way…” drar iväg åt alla håll och en uppräkning av det jag hör på denna ytterst varierade och välproducerade cd (gitarrdriven italiensk progg från 70-talet, Frank Zappa, King Crimsons 70-tal, pårökt Merit Hemmingson, 60-tals psykedelika från Londons förorter, Fläsket brinner uppdaterade för 2000-talet – och så vidare) ger en fingervisning både om spelskicklighet, innovationsrikedom och stora skivsamlingar. 

 Enda smolken är ett stockholmskt uttal av de (fåtaliga) engelska texterna, men det är en detalj. Jag blir besviken om de inte får vara huvudnummer vid årets Slottsskogen goes progressive i Göteborg i augusti (tillsammans med Introduction, Koi, Gösta Berlings saga, Dynamo Bliss – det kan bli en lång kväll…) eller om inte någon klok människa för samman de här modiga männen med Janne Schaffer för att visa hur ett modern form av Hörselmat skulle kunna låta – och sätter skivan på repeat."
