Lars Boutrup releasing his third instrumental progressive rock album
World wide release 2nd of March 2015
Small as a Ball
Small as a Ball contains 8 new instrumental compositions written by Lars Boutrup in the style of classic keyboard driven prog rock. Themes, synth and rock organ explosions along with dreaming keyboard playing make Small as a Ball a unique album you want to play again and again. Small as a Ball is mixed with the steady rhythm duo of drums and bass of Fredrik Sunesen and Niels W. Knudsen. Like its predecessor ”The Symphonic Dream” Boutrup, Sunesen & Knudsen have added a great live feel on Small as a Ball, with energy, punch and soul. On every note it´s beautiful it´s nasty and it´s clear that the boys love to play that kind of instrumental music to get their spirits high.
Like on Lars Boutrup´s first two solo efforts Fredrik Sunesen is playing the drums and percussion and this time Niels W. Knudsen is playing bass on every track and it gives Small as a Ball a unique sound of a band with energy and lots of feel.
Over the years Lars Boutrup has played and worked with worldwide bands like Simcess, Big Bang, Evil Masquerade and Supernova along with studio recording and music composing. Additionally Lars Boutrup has composed the music and played to more than 200 silent movie pictures in Denmark and Sweden.
In the Meantime
