Behind the project, artist name and pseudonym 'Between Interval' is me - Stefan Strand - musician, producer and composer from Southern Sweden. Born in 1982, my childhood was imprinted by 8-bit video game music and eurodance. My father's Pink Floyd LP records from the 70's gave an early introduction to ambient soundscapes, teaching me that music can be something deeper and more atmospheric than just a catchy melody. I started experimenting and composing music on my own late 1996, at that time heavily influenced by techno, trance & house music as well as the slightly more geeky world of the demo- and trackerscene. A few years later I found my way - or perhaps returned - to the vast ambient genre inspired by artists like Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Aphex Twin and japanese soundtrack composer Kenji Kawai. Between Interval as a music act was founded somewhere around 2003, somewhat as a counter-move to escape the strict 4/4 bassdrums and confining rules surrounding the club music genres. Ambient music became my freedom to create whatever I felt like. That is also what the name 'Between Interval' implies - although consciously ambiguous - it's the space or void between the intervals of the so often narrow regular everyday life.
In the year 2008 I legally changed my last name from Jönsson to Strand which is an old family name. Hence my releases before 2008 credit Stefan Jönsson and the ones after that Stefan Strand.
