Haydé - Traveling debut album
Haydé is a singer, composer, arranger and songwriter. The "Traveling" album includes 14 tracks, from the mood of classical music to the world of elecronical music and back. The dynamics are really wide. Haydé's music is well nuanced and also good-humored; playfulness is an important part of her expression in both lyrics and arrangements. Life-like lyrics mostly tell about melancholy, thirst for life, searching for oneself, longing for love, leaving home and finding home.
String Orchestra is the most important element on the album after the vocals. Haydé didn't want to use the sound of any guitars. It was a choice she made in the very beginning when she was planning the soundscape of the album. Haydé wanted to color her own sound with strings, piano, french horn, flugelhorn and trumpet. She created electronic elements such as beats and different synthesizers in co-operation with Dennis Millner. Percussions and acoustic drums support the whole and the double bass is a strong organic force through the album. Johannes Österlund has made four arrangements on the album and he is also the orchestra conductor.
The album has been recorded and mixed by Jori Levantovskij.
The album is mastered by Henkka Niemistö / Chartmakers Oy.
