Born from the synthesis of Swedish folk melodies and ritual ambient, Linnea Hjertén's debut album “Nio systrar” (‘Nine sisters’) is a wordless invocation of primordial energy – a psychoacoustic gateway to altered states of consciousness.
Each of the nine tracks brings us deeper into the cycle of spiritual death and rebirth, stripping away the old to make way for the new. With a musical maturity far beyond her years, Hjertén channels the ethereal beauty of Dead Can Dance, the spellbinding chants of Kari Rueslåtten, and the minimalist Nordic atmosphere of Forndom.
“Nio systrar” will be released by Nordvis on CD and digital format on January 12, 2024. It was recorded, produced, and mixed by Linnea Hjertén. Samples and additional recordings by Ludvig Swärd (Forndom). Mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio.
As a natural extension of her spiritual practices, Linnea Hjertén reached a point where her melodies had to break the confines of her private sanctuary. The compositions had initially served a wide range of purposes: as grounding forces, as enhancements of energies, and as manifestations of intent to release that which no longer served her.
With an expansive love for diverse genres – from ambient to folk, from jazz to various forms of metal – Linnea's music is less about the style and more about a different quality, sound, or purpose. Trained in music production, she relishes the creative journey from inner melody to the final mix, unearthing the exact tools needed to craft the perfect musical space.
