Magnus Sjöquist: Bergslagen
Magnus Sjöquist is known for his exquisite work on the U-Bass, but his latest release is a totally different beast. He won the 2020 International Bass Competition by the Uppsala Guitar Festival, which had the first prize of a .strandberg Boden Bass.
The combination of the bass and his home in Sweden led him to write this beautiful, dark piece of music.
“‘Bergslagen’ is the first song composed on and featuring the Boden bass. Inspired by my surrounding nature, I believe this composition has some nordic melancholy vibes,” Sjöquist shares. “I hope you enjoy my part of the world the way I describe it through Music!”
The song is available for download through iTunes and Amazon MP3 as well as streaming services.
