This For­got­ten Land is the haunt­ing, beau­ti­ful and ethe­real new al­bum from ac­claimed Swedish film com­poser, Matti Bye. Across eleven tracks, the con­tem­po­rary pi­anist cre­ates a warm, in­tro­spec­tive world com­pletely of its own. Highly at­mo­spheric, the record is at once serene, sub­lime and eerie with plenty of emo­tion and soul. There is a dis­tinct time­less qual­ity, aided by the un­der­cur­rent of crack­ling am­bi­ence that truly al­lows the lis­tener to sink into his dream-like com­po­si­tions. Gen­tle pi­ano keys weave between soft, drift­ing melodies, warm bass, muf­fled tones and dis­tant bells. Rich in beauty and dense tex­tures, the al­bum is awash with beauty, ro­mance and hu­man emo­tion, tak­ing you on a long, me­an­der­ing jour­ney through your own mind; dreams, reflections and mem­o­ries com­ing to the fore in its al­lur­ing, heart-felt melodies. The record merges a dis­tant, oth­er­worldly feel with an in­ti­mate at­mos­phere to give This For­got­ten

Land an un­for­get­table com­plex­ion. This is a won­der­ful al­bum from a truly dis­tinc­tive and sin­gu­lar vi­sion­ary of con­tem­po­rary mu­sic.
