I detta soloprojekt tar Landæus konceptet från sitt hyllade album till livescenen. En suggestiv berg och dalbana genom melankoliska klanger, kantig jazz, klubbiga beats och atmosfäriska ljudlandskap. Varje konsert blir en unik upplevelse där alla ljud ursprungligen kommer från scenens flygel och bearbetas på plats.

"From the Piano är inget annat än ett mästerverk. Med all önskvärd tydlighet slår den fast att Landæus är en av Sveriges mest intressanta musiker. Dess 39 minuter rymmer både lekfullhet och bråddjup kontemplation, både skir skörhet och elektrisk kraft. Att ta del av den är som att träda in i ett alternativt, snillrikt och godsinnat universum där allting är möjligt." ORKESTER JOURNALEN
In English: One man. One grand piano. A laptop and some electronics. One rule: every waveform must be derived from the piano on stage. With the piano as his only sound source Mathias Landæus creates atmospheric soundscapes, clubby beats, fat bass and monstrous wails. Each concert is a unique improvised roller coaster through deep contemplation, electric power and hard grooves, all woven together with Landæus’ unmistakably distinctive piano playing: at once melodic, profound and full of humor.

Mathias Landæus is an influential Swedish jazz pianist, well known for his adventurous attitude and excellent musicianship. He has released 15 well-received albums with various constellations since his debut in 1996.

Parallell to his jazz career, Landæus has been involved with electronic music for 20 years. The concept album FROM THE PIANO received overwhelming reviews in Scandinavia, earning the highest score in the major Swedish newspapers, including selection as 2016’s “Jazz Album of the Year.”

On the album Landæus explores the sonic possibilities of the piano using a wide range of playing techniques and processing methods. Critics have made references to Thelonious Monk, Arvo Pärt, Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Bugge Wesseltoft, Aphex Twin and Super Mario!

“FROM THE PIANO is none other than a masterpiece. It establishes without a doubt that Landæus is one of the most interesting musicians in Sweden. These 39 minutes contain both playfulness and vast contemplation, both delicate frailty and electric power. To take part in it is like entering a brilliant and benign alternate universe, where everything is possible.” Orkester Journalen
