Helge Lien grew up right in the very middle of these two traditions, American and Scandinavian. Building bridges between different cultures and working with contrasts has always been at the heart of his approach. The former is expansive, ornamental and melodic. It impresses with its technical virtuosity; the richness of forms it is capable of evoking; the wide scope of its influences and inspirations; its link to modern life. The latter is introspective, minimal and rhythmic. It excels by means of its hypnotic qualities; the concentration and constraint it is capable of maintaining; the depth of its moods and ambiances; its roots in tradition.
