Chapter four: Dösjö / by Sergio Díaz De Rojas

Dösjö is and old Swedish word I came across with while reading Wilhelm Moberg’s book series The Emigrants. Literally, it translates to “Dead Sea” and is poetically described as “remains of old storms that haven’t found peace”. I have used the actual shipping forecast throughout the song, a sound that instantly takes me back to childhood memories of being out at sea. Putting it in this context makes it much less nostalgic and much more ominous, though.
