«The majority of this record was recorded in my two-bedroom apartment, in the heart of my hometown, while my downstairs neighbor was playing whatever was on the top of the charts that week. It was a challenging atmosphere to work in, to say the least!», says Skovgaard laughingly. This year he celebrates his first decade as an active musician and recording artist.
As much as the record was a creative process for Skovgaard, and a way to adapt to the current state of music, it was the rediscovering of his own singing voice that set everything in motion:
«I had to rethink everything I knew about making music in order to make this record. Up until a year ago I had associated my voice solely with rock music and I couldn’t find the link between my voice and other genres of music. Through the use of processing and harmonizers I finally found the missing link and a way to rediscover my own voice. This impacted the music in many ways, but mainly helped in shaping the arrangements. The next step in my process was to break away from the verse-chorus form, that I know backwards and forwards. I was able to move freely without any predetermined rules. Being rid of this form gave me new energy, which flows through the entire record.»
