Ratkje, Maja S.K. / Jon Wesseltoft / Camille Norment / Per Gisle Galaen: Celadon (Important Records)

Label: Important Records    
Released in: USA    

"A work of slowly evolving beauty that gradually unravels its meditative design. Recorded in 2013 in the mausoleum of Norwegian sculptor and painter Emanuel Vigeland (1875-1948) in Oslo, a recording space that is famous for its acoustics and its long and full-sounding reverb. These three tracks utilize both the delicacy and the power of acoustic instruments and human voice in relation to the unique recording space. Otherworldly and eerie but also with a great primal expressive force. Performed by four artists from different backgrounds coming together to create a singular set of music."-Important
