Pocket Pavilions is the recording project of Daniel Högberg from Gothenburg, Sweden. The album is the first part in a three volume set of 10” mini albums from Pocket Pavilions to be released on Castles in Space. The third part will be available in a deluxe box designed to house all three volumes.

“For me, writing and recording pieces of music is a bit like building miniature worlds one can step inside. I always liked the pavilions of the mid century world fairs. Pavilions, architecture with no function other than to be experienced, seemed like a good analogy. Looking at these pavilions today, they seem like a faded echo of a future that never came to pass, a feeling of wonder and innocence – something I wanted to capture in music. I've always loved the early, pre-synthesizer years of the Radiophonic Workshop. There's something about the work process that resonates with me. Something about the creativity and craftmanship involved in overcoming the technological limitations of the time.

I like to work with self imposed artistic limitations to unlock creativity and imbue a distinct character to the music. With Pocket Pavilions, the idea was to only use the computer as a tape recorder. All effects were done outside of the computer using springs, tape manipulations and sending signals through resonating objects or unusual speakers. With some exceptions, all music was created with manipulated everyday sounds, a modular synthesizer and a few organs. I love attention to detail, painting smaller paintings within paintings and adding secret rooms within rooms. It's a slow and laborious way of working, but something I find very stimulating.” - Daniel Högberg
