Eivind Opsvik: Overseas V

Read "Overseas V" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Like his first four Overseas albums, Eivind Opsvik's Overseas V defies conventional descriptions. The New York resident, of Norwegian roots, has developed a peculiar style that marries experimental avant-garde with the folkloric traditions of the North Country.

Il meglio del 2016 secondo Luca Vitali

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Luca Vitali" reviewed by Luca Vitali

Un 2016 iniziato sotto la stella nera di Bowie e la sua dipartita inimmaginabile e, verrebbe da dire, teatrale... come sempre. Blackstar per mille ragioni è il mio disco dell'anno, ma l'uomo che cadde sulla Terra è tornato su Marte e ci guarda da una diversa prospettiva...

Nils Økland: Kjølvatn

Read "Kjølvatn" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The significance of the Hardanger Fiddle--a homespun Norwegian variation of the violin--is that while it is played on four strings, as a similar string instrument would be, it has four or five additional strings under the fingerboard which vibrate during playing. Though its use has been limited in modern music, Nils Økland has not only mastered ...

Mette Henriette Martedatter Rølvåg: Mette Henriette
