There’s a new album on the horizon from Norwegian composer and multi-instrumentalist Kaada. Entitled Closing Statements, it follows Bacteria Cult, his collaborative album with Mike Patton released in 2016, and last year’s score for Angels Are Made of Light.
The album title refers to people’s last uttered words, with the subject of death as the central theme. Kaada explains:
“There is a mysterious aim over the final words of the dying. What does these last words reveal about life, death and consciousness? These words give a glimpse into the individual’s overall feelings and experiences. The underlying message of the album is that we have to listen to each other. In a modern world where people mostly don’t have the time or interests to get to know one another, we need to be reminded that we need to listen. At least… when somebody is about to say their last words.”
Closing Statement arrives on May 25th through Mirakel Recordings and Kaada is enticing us now with two magnificent, cinematic and striking tracks, ‘Farewell’ and ‘Unknown Destination’.
