Bon Iver: this is the sound of my music


More than just a musician, Bon Iver is a great sound artist. His first record, For Emma, forever ago (2007) captivated many listeners not only because of his poignant songwriting, but also because of the way he arranged the layers of his charming music. When you listen to Bon Iver, Bon Iver (2011) that talent keeps offering its moments of brilliance. The skillful way in which he puts together the ingredients of his music (instruments, sounds, vocals, textures) enhances the already touching honesty among his tunes. Bon Iver's songs, especially on his last record, are like delicate, precise and beautiful works of art; nothing seems to be insufficient or excessive -it all seems to be in its right measure. If you listen attentively to this music, closing your eyes and your other senses, you will be able to find -and enjoy of- its many wonders. Bon Iver, Bon Iver is not just a musical jewel, it is a sonic masterpiece.
