Possible Future : I
Oskarjones' second EP (awaiting release), Possible Future : I seeks to communicate the incomparable anguish that the climate crisis, caused by our greedy and profit driven society, is inflicting upon the world.
The four pieces sonically narrate a "possible future" of our own, which is a result of the potential decision that we as a population face.
A sonic response to the artist Caroline Areskog Jones' most recent practice, which involved the collection and visual interpretation of field recordings captured whilst walking in the Sierra Maria National Park.
The entire 30 minute composition is a series a smaller overlapping 'movements' (including Dusk_3). Here the intention is not for the field recordings to be background noise, but instead to be an integral part of the musical dialogue that requires an equal level of focus to what I am playing.

The Boughs of a Soul 02/2022
Oskarjones' Debut EP is a collection of reflective, improvisatory solo piano compositions that carry profound emotion, which act as a small window into the reflective sentimentality that lies behind his compositions
Nebulous tones and muffled resonances conjure vivid spaces of reverie, moments which are separated by the ephemeral abyss of the mind.
