Next in the quiet details series we have something very special - an incredible interpretation from the musician and visual artist, øjeRum. 

Loved for his music as much as his stunning collages, øjeRum has a deep back-catalogue of releases spanning labels such as Room40, Opal Tapes, Fluid Audio and many more - all exploring his unique minimal and deeply textural style. 

With En Sten for Solen (A Stone To The Sun, translated from his native Danish) we find an album which builds on his already finely-honed sensibilities and creates an emotive and introspective journey through his refined creativity. 

Beginning with what feels like rhythmic footsteps into the immersive worlds he’s so adept at conjuring, you quickly fall deeper into these mesmerising and all-encompassing narcotic soundscapes. 

Gaseous clouds mix with disintegrating melodic phrases, beautifully designed auditory illusions come in and out of focus - all perfectly paced and subtly shifting as time goes on and the music draws you further in. 

This music, like his artwork, has an almost mystical feeling, verging on the supernatural - it’s timeless and has a way of speaking to people regardless of background or culture - it’s purely human and moving beyond words. 

The production is as we’ve come to expect from øjeRum - dense yet soft, with bright rays of light beaming through the nebulous mist. 

Living up to his reputation as an artist that traverses media with great skill, along with the album he wrote these poetic words: 

I hold a stone to the sun / so I cannot see 
the sun for the stone / but only its outline 
that vibrates and shapes / the stone bigger and smaller 
organic and graceful as / an angel in the snow 
until the point where / the stone seems to disappear 
too real to be / real and / now I hold the sun 
the sun for the stone / and the angel in the snow 
is dancing with the sun / in the stone 

Huge thanks to øjeRum for everything, a truly complete and wonderful addition to the series. 

The artwork was made as always influenced by the music and idea behind the album - this time it was very special as øjeRum is so well-know for his visual art - he gave me the honour of using one of his original collages to use as the basis of the piece - which was then captured with analogue photography and processed here at quiet details studios. 
We’re both very happy with the results and so pleased to share it with you.
