ALBUMS AND PROJECTS

ECHOES OF NORTH

DEBUT ALBUM RELEASES ON THE 7TH OF JUNE 2024

PRE-ORDER ALBUM HERE: https://christinekammerer.bandcamp.com/album/echoes-of-north

“Echoes of North” is the debut album of Danish-Bavarian singer and composer Christine Kammerer, currently residing in Scotland on a Global Talent Visa for Music. The album will be released on the 7th of June 2024. A symphonic fusion of Nordic & Celtic Folk Music arranged in collaboration with award-winning musicians from Scotland, Denmark and Norway. At its essence, the project embodies a profound quest to rediscover and re-establish the shared cultural heritage and roots between Scotland and Scandinavia.

Furthermore, two singles, ”Carry Me Home” and the Danish ”Jeg Kender Et Danmark” (“I Know of a Denmark”), will be released on the 3rd of May and 31st of May.

Featuring 10 tracks, sung in Danish, English, and Gaelic, these compositions have been crafted over nearly a decade. While firmly rooted in folk traditions, the album showcases Kammerer’s remarkable musical evolution spanning 25 years. Drawing from her background in classical music, musical theatre, and symphonic heavy metal, her symphonic and cinematic arrangements offer a fresh perspective to the folk genre. The album has been masterfully brought to life by musicians who have weaved together history and modernity, employing a range of ancient and contemporary instruments.

PRESS AND REVIEWS

RAVEN BRINGS RUNES (2022)

This is an Nordic Animism inspired music project based on a collaboration between the musicians Kjell Braaten ,Christine Kammerer, HC Molbech, the illustrator Sara Bøgh and Rune Hjarnø Rasmussen.

The track can be found on this linktree: https://hypeddit.com/ravenferd/ravenbringsrunes

Read more about the concept and idea behind the project here

The objective of the project is to affect cultural transformation by communicating the recovery of Nordic traditional knowledge of kinship with the other-than-human community of beings, an Animist knowledge that lies in our shared cultural heritage.

The music video shows the global retaking of the Raven symbol. It aims at conveying how this symbol connects people across cultures and countries. Hence the project aims at building a bridge between cutting edge cultural research and popular culture.

BETHESDA NORDIC COLLABORATION (2021)

In honour of the 10 years anniversary of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I created a cover of the famous song from the game: “The Dragonborn Comes” (originally written by Jeremy Soule and sung by Malukah) in collaboration with Bethesda Nordic and Anna Erlandsson.
