“Introspection” is an album inspired by an inward, emotional, gaze, conveying feelings which are often difficult to translate into words.
Introspection revolves around a look inward to observe our own varying selves and how these creations overlap with each other. It’s Nærø‘s first album on 7K! – the follow-up to the self produced debut ‘By Heart’ – and includes the hypnotic lead single ‘Waves’ which was released in December last year. Nærø’s piano composition converts complexity and skill into minimalistic patterns which have great effect. It is important to Nærø to refine and reduce his compositions down, resulting in soundscapes that are concentrated and powerful in their communication and emotive potency.
Born in Oslo in 2000, Nærø moved to Ålesund at five years old where he began studying piano, starting with classics such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff, and at the age of nine discovering the forefathers of minimalism such as Philip Glass and Arvo Part. These are the influences that created Vetle Nærø’s philosophy and goal to convey feelings and thoughts through his music, to perform and compose emotionally spontaneous music directly from the heart, which is simple and can be understood by anyone.
