Iiris Viljanen: Doing The Dishes 2017
This year I have mostly listened to music while doing the dishes. The moments of that everyday work has been my moments of quality time alone and time for self reflection.
So I made this playlist of songs that have been on repeat in my headphones while dish washing in 2017.
What the tracks have in common is the Nordic melancholy. I also find a lot of strength, inspiration and a feeling of being free when listening to these pieces.
Iiris Viljanen has received wide spread acclaim in her adopted Sweden after releasing two albums in 2016, the instrumental Kiss me, stupid & 7 more solo piano pieces followed later that year by Mercedes.
Iiris makes a rare live performance in Helsinki at Korjaamo Vintti this Saturday, 2nd December.
