Nature and landscapes with all it´s myriad of sounds and expressions, has always played an important part in Twice a Man´s creative process. They enter deeply into textures of natural sounds and music to paint an ambience where they look for a spiritual quality in music, a kind of "otherness". Music can transcend you, purify you and open doors to the imagination. The performance and music interact with lights and projections that creates a virtual scenography, a window that deepens the experience. There are certain atmospheres that could be described as "Nordic", perhaps generated from long winters, darkness, melancholia, the desolate Scandinavian landscapes. There is a nostalgia or longing for something that is lost, like we are butterflies wihout wings, searching for beauty to find truth and something to believe in.

 

I´ve been chasing this dream as long as i remember

these graceful moments, these states of mind,

when time slows down and I become one

with all that surrounds me, all fear left behind
