Klaus Schönning – Subterraneans

Klaus wrote: “Experiences make an impression. Impressions inspire. Inspiration can be translated into creativity such as music, and that’s how it is for me. Nature is a great inspiration, whether you express yourself through pictures, music or other art, and natural experiences have often been an inspiration for my work with music.”

My wife and I had just such a nature experience in connection with a trip to Lanzarote, where we visited the Cueva de los Verdes, where a part of a seven km long magnificent cave deep below the earth’s surface was accessible. A very unique and inspirering scenario.

The music on “Subterraneans” is not a direct attempt at a musical underpinning and illustration for the magnificent impressions, but it is a result of the inspiration for creativity that such unique experiences with nature can provide.

Subterraneans is out March 24th 2023.
