Lisa Montan (formerly Lisa Holmqvist) is a composer of music and sound art based in Stockholm, and the only female to have been awarded a Guldbagge for her 2015 score the film Flocken.

Fossiler, which is partly a retrospective album of Lisa´s compositions from film scores, also features all new pieces such as the otherworldly and unraveling track “Höstanemon”. Solo voice and wordless choir, minimalistic percussion, bowed saw, reeds and winds instruments wrapped around sparse string arrangements.

All of Montan’s fourteen compositions on Fossiler have out-of-time and ceremonious qualities, such as the enticing track “Guld” (from the film Guld by Abe Hassan), where a single voice introduces what could be an ancient lullaby. “Psalm 1” (from the film Euphoria by Lisa Langseth), a wind and woodwind piece shadowed by static, could easily have been composed two hundred years ago and has those entrancingly sacred qualities. “Enter Forest” (from the film Euphoria) is gorgeously warped and majestic awakening.

A big part of Fossiler came from image-related projects. She says that “in this context the music is the leading narrator. Music can stand on its own, because the listener can supply her own image.”

On February 28th, 2020 OONA Recordings is proud to present Fossiler, the debut instrumental release from this unique, talented and important voice.

“With this record, I am ready to celebrate being in my own skin, myself” says Lisa.
