October 28, birthday of Agnes Caroline Thaarup Obel (b. 1980)

Agnes Caroline Thaarup Obel is a Berlin-based Danish singer/songwriter. Since Wikipedia doesn’t list many women composers, I also search it for singer-songwriters on any given day. Agnes grew up in a musical household. Her mother played Bartok and Chopin and she learned to play piano at a very early age. Her piano teacher told her to only play things she liked, which is probably why she stayed with it. This piece is nice and atmospheric, which is usually what I listen for first in any new piece of music. I found two versions of it on Youtube, one really trippy and the other a bit more poppy. I like them both. How about you?

    beautiful, Kurt

    the first video seemed to me more ethereal, metaphysical, mystical, the second more narrative, emotional, but that’s probably because of the visuals

    I’ll listen again with my eyes closed

    I’ll keep you posted

    Mournful, Scandi-noir. We’re in ‘The Bridge’ territory.

    I like both versions, too. Richibi does have a good idea to listen again with eyes closed.
