Thymeshift + Amsler has been on the road for an intense week performing at different venues around Sweden. Besides playing regular concerts, we’ve been doing some really fun workshops with students at different stages in their musical development. The common theme for the workshops has been improvisation. Everybody can improvise in music, it’s no different than improvising in your everyday life. We make split second decisions all the time everyday and we can do the same in music. It doesn’t need to have anything to do with playing the “right” scales or notes. It’s a mindset! We had some really rewarding moments with the students during the week. Fun, fun, fun!
Also worth mentioning is that we’ve now completed our forthcoming album. We spent 2 days at Studio Zen in Gothenburg recording several new tunes. We’re stoked about this. It will be a great album, maybe there’s material for a double album. We’ll see!
Finally, look out for our last shows on this tour!
