Some notes from Nils Davidsen on his new album with FaKIRGIRaF , which reveals a new side of his artistic work :


”FaKIRGIRaF is  for me a fantasyworld.

A platform, where I can meet other sides of my musical self .

Inventing and developing stuff. Doing whatever I want to.

Working with the FaKIRGIRaF music is being the master of universes. Moving around freely and quickly.


In 2006 when I stumbled over these analog keyboards, I started recording bits.  In the beginning -yes- just for fun.

Yet what started out as a flirt between me and the machines, turned into a longerlasting relationship.

The keyboards are easy to manipulate - they are like small instant symphonyorchestras in a box.


In general terms, you can say that it’s about searching for sounds - my sounds. Our sounds. Other sounds. Sounds from the inside and sounds from the outside.  


And , at the end of the day, exposing the music to you.



So please : get lost in attractions & skeletons - enjoy!"
