Follow Suit Part 3 of 4 --Ruter / Diamonds

Ltd. cassette with die cut cover, 2 inserts (1x print / 1x plum) & vinyl sticker. Comes with a full suit of illustrated Ruter (Diamonds) playing cards, both housed in a custom made playing cards style box.

***

Artist statement by T. Jervell:

"The starting point for this album was the suit of Diamonds. In Norway we call this suit" ruter ". Ruter refers to the geometric shape found on the cards, but the word can also mean windows. This led to the idea that these 12 tracks should not only represent the 12 cards in the suit, but also have a narrative connected to 12 windows in my house.
Windows are also interesting in terms of the fact that they are see-through, but also able to reflect.
So, this is an album with a narrative.
Instrumental (art) music that attempts to describe a narrative musically, is often called program music. The narrative might be presented as a text (program notes), through the piece's title etc.
In light of this, I decided that this would be an album of program music.
I am sure there are people who will argue that this isn't proper program music, in regards to it not being “classical music” / art music. I could of course make an argument and discuss this, but I will not.
You just have to accept that the music you are about to hear, and the accompanying text is composed according to my interpretations of what the term program music contains. "
