Album Description

I see this recording as a fruit of the pandemic and as proof that good can come from bad. When Kafé Hærverk in my hometown Oslo, a club that has become legendary in what must be record time, in May 2021 called to say they were opening up, albeit certain restrictions, asking if I wanted to play, my first thought was great joy from realizing that an opening-up was happening, at last. My second thought was that I had been handed a chance to do something new. Listening to the recording now, I primarily feel gratified that Per Oddvar Johansen and Ayumi Tanaka both said yes right away when I called, asking them to take their chances and play with me at the newly opened venue.
 After receiving the recording, all these sounds, whims, excavations, sketches and ramblings confirm my belief that innovation in art does not necessarily need to imply the creation of unheard methods, playing techniques or instruments. Given the right state of mind, It can be just as profound and innovative to meet on stage with a common intention to create new music. To me, this album is as close you get to collective musical painting. Tellef Øgrim
