Her debut is impressive, not least because Nanna had never composed music until she began making her debut album Fauna. And yet she has programmed and arranged all elements on the album herself. With international names such as Thomas Knak, Kasper Bjørke, Peder and Ormen all playing a vital part of the record. All this has made world famous DJ Kjeld Tolstrup praise her obvious talents on national radio and several articles and blogs have named her "the one to watch" on the Danish music scene. About Oh Land When Nanna in 2004, then aged 19, finished her education at the Stockholm Ballet School a back injury put an abrupt end to her promising career as a ballerina. After having dedicated all her life to dancing Nanna now had to find a new goal in life. And her ear turned its attention towards music. Nanna grew up in a home filled with music – her mother was an opera singer associated to the Danish Royal Theatre and her father is an organist – so Nanna had a solid base to build her musical ambitions on. It is nonetheless awe inspiring that Nanna not only sings on Fauna, but also programmes her own beats, plays the piano, guitar and violin and samples everything from pots and pans to buzzing flies and her own voice. In this fashion, Nanna’s personal imprint is solidly embedded in all aspects of her ambitious soundscapes. About Fauna Nanna put her demos on Myspace under the name Oh Land and it didn’t take the professional music world long to find her. Kasper Bjørke (producer and DJ, eg. in Filur) contacted Oh Land and quickly signed her to the up-and-coming feinschmecker indie label Fake Diamond Records. And since then Nanna has worked on her debut with some of the most established Danish producers; Thomas Knak (People Press Play, System and Björk among others), Peder (award winning producer), Anders "Ormen" Christophersen (Melk) – and Kasper Bjørke himself. Furthermore, very prominent international guest musicians appear on Fauna: BenMo from the lauded Coco Rosie, the noted theramin player Dorit Chrysler and classical violinist and composer Davide Rossi (who has worked with names such as Brian Eno, The Verve, Goldfrapp and Coldplay) along with Nanna’s own mother, Bodil Øland. During the making of Fauna Oh Land has developed a striking visual live expression, containing elements such as owl costumes, choreography with umbrellas, a flowerfilled scenography and visuals made by successful Danish artist Eske Kath. 簡單翻譯: Danish Oh Land, 23歲, 首張專輯令人印象深刻在於: 不僅她在制作這張專輯前從來沒有寫過音樂, 而且這張專輯音樂元素的編程與編曲都由她親自完成. ryan說:完美的出道作品,2009年最大的驚喜. 期待cd的出版.
