Henrik Hytteballe creates an album that, while classified in the “New Age” genre, gives us (our ears and our hearts) far more than that… it is ambient joyful rocking distinct and different from anything you’ve ever listened to before…
The 6:00 “Hummingbirds” wound up being my choice for personal favorite of the ten tunes Henrik offers up… he uses an abundance of textures and swirling instruments to hold you spellbound, and coming back for more… you will hear his musical genius on this wonderful piece of music.

“Gratitude” is 10 tracks of ambient electronic music created from keyboard, synth, guitar, duduk, and cello. The music found here is exciting, and beautifully expresses and celebrates all there is to be grateful for in life. “Gratitude” is a wonderful album. If you love authentic electronica, you will love this.

Henrik Hytteballe, the Danish synthesis and composer who has been releasing his ambient and healing New Age electronic music as The Haiku Project since the mid-2010s, is one of the genre’s more fascinating personalities, creating complementary works as a visual and musical artist inspired by nature and a wide range of human emotions. Just as his paintings range from abstract compositions to partially figurative universes, his music – which culminates now in Gratitude, his latest full-length collection on myndstream – allows us to immerse deeply and bring different experiences and feelings to the moment.

This is entertaining music. I have to say the guitar adds that extra element that makes an instrumental ambient album entirely different.
I would be hesitant to put this into a sub-genre to new age but there is enough there that qualifies it. There are strong elements of rock and some jazz woven into the ten tracks offered here. In other words, to be honest, this is not music that is easily defined but I loved it.
