Parallax (Omenas / Kolbeinsen /  Thorsrud): Live In The UK (FMR)
Label: FMR    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Parallax is one of those rare and lucky collaborations where there is a great sense of chemistry from the very beginning. Since forming the group in 2008 they have toured and recorded extensively in Europe, and present a selection of this material on their debut album Live in the UK. These musicians are musically so far inside each otherŐs heads that their improvisations seem to border on the telepathic, and have forged their own unique take on improvising that seamlessly draws on an array of influences ranging from Asian folk musics to traditional jazz and abstract soundscapes. Rustling, crackling, stealthily winding and melodic, the music moves effortlessly from a mere whisper to intensely suggestive stretches of rhythmic improvising. "-Parallax website
