about

"Ferd" means “journey”, “travel”, and “to explore”. The album's primary focus is to honour those who travelled the world, thus expanding knowledge and facilitating cultural exchange. This aspect is highlighted through working with music in a historical sense, as most of the travelers’ instruments were brought back from far away cultures – bringing with them musical inspiration as well. The inspiration is drawn from a wide range of sounds from all over the world, particularly from North Africa, America, and the East.

Ferd started out as a collection of pieces initially composed for short movies, documentaries and plays, performed on old Norse instruments. It soon evolved far beyond that. Reworked with the help of talented fellow Nordic musicians and brought together to give life to Ferd, the songs unveil a great journey with a common focus, while still telling each their own stories. Kjell invited visual artists to illustrate each song of the album, which you can find in the extensive booklet together with their corresponding stories.

about

Kjell Braaten Bergen, Norway

I BELIEVE IN MUSIC AS A CROSS
CULTURAL GLOBAL LANUAGE

Music moves. Music speaks. Music is like a language that express things spoken words can not.
It is a multilanuage that all human beings can understand no matter what culture, religion or region you come from.
I compose for theatre, movies and live performances and I also perform on stage both solo and with other projects.
