'Inner Sound' is the new album of an artist who is constantly evolving as a composer and producer and who passes repeatedly between musical worlds.
The album builds on Stefan Grasse's earlier successes 'Ripples' and 'Guitar Phases' and expands the warm, natural sound of his instrument with echoes and other effects.
In addition to atmospheric, shimmering and colorful solo pieces, Grasse layers several guitar voices into pulsating soundscapes in more complex compositions. He becomes a musical storyteller, describes the moods of nature or revives impressions of crossing the Alps in 'Lontano e oltre i monti'. In 'Glass Games' Grasse pays homage to Phillip Glass, a pioneer of minimal music. In the composition 'Inner Sound' he not only refers to a contemplative inner sound idea, but also to the fjord of the same name near the Island of Skye in Scotland, where he lived for one year. The metamorphosis, the transition from sea to land, symbolizes the changes in sound that Stefan Grasse produces on his instruments and compositions.
“With 'Inner Sound' I wanted to open a new chapter and picking tools and stories that touched and fascinated me so much. 'Inner Sound' is a story of transition, of the metamorphosis that life wrests from me, but also the longing to find a point of calmness in the fragile reality of life. It is an attempt to confront life, nature and transience and combines past, present and future to create my new sound.”
