Felicia Konrad Cosmic Wash Over is the name of the album and the live constellation and a song on this album!

Starting as my solo project it quickly changed into a collaboration in my name, so it is Felicia Konrad Cosmic Wash Over together with Caroline Leander: composer, pianist, singer, Mats Persson: electronica, soundart, recordings, David Carlsson: bassist, sounds and the master, Robin Knutsson drummer and Peter Tegnér, guitarist. Two other fantastic musicians have contributed, Amit Sen, cello on the song Cosmic Wash Over and Petter Lindgård, trumpet on the song Falling right through.

The whole process started when I, Mats and Caroline met the fist time and tested some of my sketches of coming material, and we recorded this first improvised session. The song Growing in Heart happened and shaped instantly in this session, and this very first take is on the album. This spontaneous, direct way of creating music became a guideline for our working process with the recording and mixing in the great place with a fantastic atmosphere, Gula Studion in Malmö, Sweden.

During these recordings the wonderful filmmaker Peggy Eklöf has filmed two music videos, In the days of foam, and Falling right through. The video In the days of foam is containing parts of the short film Mayte’s Magic Circus, made by the under water photographer, Zena Holloway, with the butohdancer Mayte Vaos. The video Falling right through is containing parts of the modern dance piece created by Memory Wax, Miguel Azcue and Johanna Jonasson.

From my heart, I thank you Caroline, without you this music would never happen. Mats, your ears and ideas are sharp! David, your magnetic bass and your ways of playing is remarkable. Robin, you are a brilliant drummer! Peter, thank you for coming in and letting us finally land in a full expression! All of you so rich and filled with magic, it is a pleasure to create music together with you! I also want to thank my dear friend Amit Sen, always a carismatic and astonishing cellist, and Petter Lindgård, trumpet, bringing the song Falling right through home with his soft and inventive way of playing. And to the filmmaker Peggy Eklöf, a very special thank you, you are a wonderful filmmaker!

And of course I thank my family, my husband. painter Johan Haugen and our son, the songbird Noak Haugen Konrad, and my mother Liss-Monica and my niece, Kajsa Lindberg Konrad, a young talented singer for sweet support and love. I also thank my friends who have listen to my first song sketches and supported me since. At last I thank my mentor and friend, Karin Boucher who helped me develop in such ways I can not describe, it goes way beyond.

And I am really greatful for the grants I recieved from the Swedish Artists Grants Comitté 2010.

I hope that this music will touch you!
