Pied Piper

Pied Piper is a song written by Tomi Christiansson. It is multiple folk song in many ways. It is written in spirit of old children's story, where pied piper is a leader or visionary of new things or dangers There is several versions of story, but in this song the pied piper ask you to join in old music; because of different tunes.

Can´t wipe things under the carpet
they are bound to surface soon
you can already see the silhouette
follow the pied pipers tune

Change it now
what was lost and what was found
do it anyhow
bet you gonna be safe and sound

Piper ´s tune is calling
you should join in
this time this time

Around the world there is a yarning
just correct me if I´m wrong
let´s do learning instead of burning
save the planet in a son

Director Biography - Ninel Grönholm

Tomi Christiansson is a self-learned guitar player from Finland and he is Matilda Mother band´s composer. The members are Ninel Grönholm and Tomi Christiansson.
His main instrument is the electric guitar and especially the melodic, feedback guitar, though most of the recordings has been made with an acoustic guitar, drums, piano, sometimes bass or slide guitar.
The name of the band comes from Pink Floyd ´s song Matilda Mother. They have published two LP vinyls: Sähkö and 700Napa-38, digital material more in bandcamp. There are two members and they do all the noise and sounds. Music influences vary a lot, but Tomi Christiansson has learned to play by ear at very early ages. He is listening and processing the harmonies in his head all the time: music is his life and he improvizeses as a method daily and processes new material for compositions constantly. As improvising is the method in this band, Ninel and Tomi have started to go towards longer pieces choosing one or two themes and varying the instruments while playing. The moment when the sound is still fresh and not overbaked for some common conception of how music should sound. Some raw but definitely their own unique sound, that´s what Matilda Mother band is made of.
