Sævar Jóhannsson celebrates the release of his fifth album "Where the Light Enters" with a release concert in Mengi on September 7 at 8:00 p.m.
The album contains twelve solo piano pieces inspired by the musician's speculations about wounds. The title of the album is inspired by the poet Rumi "The Wound is the place where the light enters you". Linus Orri starts the evening with a solo set.
Sævar Jóhannsson is a pianist and composer with a BA degree in composition from LHÍ. His music explores the full spectrum of human emotions and experiences; sometimes melancholic, but also playful and warm. Sævar has released five albums to date, including three albums under his former artist name, S.hel; 'LUCID' (2018), 'Disconnect' (2020) and 'RAMMI' (2021) which was a collaboration album with electronic musician Mikael Lind, and two albums under his own name, Sævar Jóhannsson; 'Whenever You're Ready' (2022) and 'Where the Light Enters' (2023). The fourth album was released by Sony and won the "you should have heard this" award from the Reykjavík Grapevine Music Awards in 2023. Along with his solo works, Sævar has composed and produced original music and accompanying soundscapes for three theater productions; Mutter Courage (2019), Skuggasveinn (2022) and Hríma (2022) as well as composing original music for the documentary 'Ég Sé Þig' ​​(2022) by Anna Hildi Hildibrandsdóttir.
