Mathieu Fiset's 7th solo album, "Qi Dai" which in Chinese Mandarin, means "looking forward to", is entirely solo piano. The album was written and recorded in China, followed by a tour of many Chinese cities including Shanghai.
"Qi Dai features some of the catchiest songs I ever wrote, allowing myself to use natural chord progressions, intuitive song structures and most importantly : melodies that my ears wanted to hear, not only what my fingers wanted to play ! It still has all of my influences at the root but it certainly have a fresh feel of "pop" music which I allowed myself to like after so many years of doing weird progressive rock music...after all, why should I be ashamed of writing beautiful melodies?"
"Of course the album wouldn't be what it is without the story that inspired it: My long tour and journey in Asia where I met a wonderful Chinese lady that changed my life...! Each song is a chapter of that story and I bet you can feel my mood on every one of them. You can now relive this journey through my music and I truly believe you can get something out of it!"
