A few words by Steen Thottrup:
It's been some years since my last solo album "Sunset People". I have to admit that it took longer for this 2nd album to come to life than i first anticipated.
In short, I got diagnosed with cancer back in early 2010, and after several major operations throughout that year, I got an all clear 100%, which of course is more than anyone can ever hope for. But with serious illness and a year out of the game came an avalanche of issues, learning to prioritise different things including financial difficulty and trying to find the right psychological balance in everything again.
Therefore, I would like to say that making this album really helped me on the way and every bit of it truly came from the heart. While going through these difficult times I was always looking for the light at the end of the tunnel.
"Filmatica" for me, is a Filmic journey stretching through inner emotions to the appreciation of what beauty the world around us provides.
Big wide landscapes, mountain ranges, the ocean and not to forget ... the sunsets.
I hope you will agree.
