Il Google Doodle dell’8 Settembre 2021 celebra la vita e le opere del leggendario dj, produttore e songwriter svedese AVICII (real name: Tim Bergling) oil quello che sarebbe stato il giorno del suo 32esimo compleanno. Uno dei pionieri e visionari più influenti della musica dance elettronica. Il doodle video è stato illustrato dalla Doodler Alyssa Winans ed è impostato su uno dei suoi successi globali più iconici: “Wake Me Up” con Aloe Blacc.

Tim Bergling nasce l’8 settembre 1989 a Stoccolma, in Svezia, pronto a raccogliere esperienze musicali multigenere, dal soul anni ’60 al glam-rock anni ’80. A 16 anni inizia a mixare brani nella sua camera da letto e nel 2011 pubblica la hit globale “Levels” sotto il nome “Avicii” dopo “Seek Bromance” come Tim Berg, aprendo la strada come una delle prime tracce di musica elettronica a scalare le classifiche pop e portandolo a esibirsi in 220 set in giro per il mondo dal 2011 al 2016.

Il 20 aprile 2018, dopo il ritiro dalle tournée nel 2016 a causa di problemi di salute, a causa di una prolungata lotta con stress e cattiva salute mentale per diversi anni, Tim si è suicidato all’età di 28 anni a Muscat (Oman), dove stava trascorrendo una vacanza con gli amici, con i cocci di una bottiglia di vetro di vino.
In seguito i suoi genitori ha avviato la fondazione Tim Bergling Foundation in sua memoria per sensibilizzare e affrontare lo stigma della salute mentale tra i giovani attraverso progetti e attività come “Concerto tributo a Stoccolma”, “Avicii Experience” e Avicii Arena!

Alcune parole da suo padre Klas Bergling:
“The Doodle is fantastic, my family and I feel honored and Tim would have been very proud and love it. It is a friendly and warm story of a young man fulfilling his dream to be a DJ and at the same time telling us that our journey in life is not always easy despite fame and fortune.

“When Tim was about 10-years-old, he sang the Swedish national anthem at full capacity. He really lived in the moment when doing that, and it was times like this I initially understood there was something special there.”

“Tim was such a special person, I was always proud of him for just being the person he was. In terms of his musical accomplishments, I will never forget when he played in a park called Strömparterren in Stockholm in the early days of his career. He’d told me explicitly to not come — maybe because it wasn’t very cool to have your father around at that age — but I went anyway and hid behind a tree. It was a great evening and I remember feeling surprised, amazed and very proud. When I came to find him backstage afterwards, he was so glad I came.”
