In 1998, Norwegian Composer and Producer Christian Welde released "Fairytales," his first solo album. Drawing inspiration from Pink Floyd and Vangelis, his soundtracks include dreamy New Age, Ambient and Pop genres. This talented composer's music has been featured on Norwegian national TV channels NRK and TV2, along with airplay on BBC Radio. Several Norwegian artists, including icon Jan Toft (formerly with Vamp), have recorded his music, and Christian often plays piano and keyboards for various artists and projects. His corporate clients include Ekornes and others.
One of Christian Welde's most beautiful tracks, Carpet Ride, from his "Skywatching" album, features famous Norwegian singer Jan Toft, former singer of Vamp, one of Norway's most successful bands. In addition, Norvalt Hitsoy plays an elegant flute solo in another track from Christian's "Fairytales" CD.
Christian resides on a lonely stretch on the coast of Norway, and in his last album, "Storytime" each song was composed and improvised in his studio. The soft rain that was falling during the day's recording can sometimes can be heard as a touching backdrop to the music.
Shimmering sounds from outer space. Key of C minor, long sustained chord with intense shimmer. Great for nature films with great scenery. Has elements of danger and suspense. Instrumental, Electronic, Ambient (pending)
Warm and soft synthesizer sounds with a simple and melodic theme. Minimalist drums. Great for scenes of longing for love, looking back, rainy day. City streets. Two chords only. Instrumental, Electronic, Chill-out
A very beautiful instrumental featuring a very melodic flute solo. Warm and wonderful synthesizers and piano creates the musical backing. Great for nature scenes, fairytales, childrens programs. A wonderful climax in the ending with strings. Instrumental, New Age, New Age Acoustic
A powerful, symphonic, typical hollywood soundtrack piece. Fast paced arpeggios, majestetic brass, bells and more. Ends in a climax with pipeorgan. Flying scenes, nature. Instrumental, Soundalikes, Vangelis
