Percussion album release february 2022 on boomslang records

I began writing this music in the winter of 2019 with the quiet urge to find a more honest way of expression. 
This new music includes many layers of feelings and thoughts which I had previously felt unable to release. To be able to express these I needed to start working consistently with the wonderful musicians and my longtime friends Roger and Leif. Both are insanely committed and willing to put a lot of time into rehearsing, talking and playing. After several months of intense work with the ensemble, a general trust began to grow between us – exactly what I was looking for the whole time. The compositions are very complex, leaving a lot of questions unanswered for the three of us, which made us learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I want the music to be an invitation to try not to expect anything from anyone: it is an invitation for you, the listener as well as for us, the musicians. Through this absence of expectations I hope we can get closer together by accepting more diversity in the arts and in human relationships.
