“The combination of music and art somehow meld together here to produce an eloquently simple album of gorgeous atmospheres and lush soundscapes.”
Hytteballe was an 80’s rocker and made a career on the concert scene, but a life altering change occurred and he literally changed his tune. The results are exemplary
First album HAIKU is about finding inner resources after a big change in life - coming back and taking part in life.
Second album MONDO is played by a complete rock band. It is both poetic and dramatic;
A Danish Newspaper gave mondo a 5 star review and described the album this way: “Definitely a fabulously sounding album, which you can only go into raptures about.“
Third album FLOW is “One of the most calming and reflective sonic experiences you could have, Haiku’s Flow is 21st century mood music at its finest.” (Mwe3.com)
Along with the release, Real world has made a beautiful video for the track Eternity:
In 2014 haiku released the 4th album Vagabond. It is electronic music with male vocal on each song with lyrics in Danish. Vagabond describes the restlessness of our modern society, which transforms us into vagabonds in our own lives.

January 2016 saw the release of Glimpses in the name of The haiku Project. Steve Sheppard One World Music Radio wrote: !Glimpses is a clever title, Henrik Hytteballe is in a class all of his own and has created via The Haiku Project, one of the most stunningly beautiful albums that you will have heard for a long time. He has manifested a release that is deeply meaningful and so musically blissful, that you will never want the experience to end."
