descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Norwegian-Swedish Andreas Backer is a voice artist presses, toil, creating long "sentences" of different sounds; Sometimes it sounds like Linus on the Line. It pinches to, rattles and rustles, squeezed and stretched. With this I want to say how virtuoso Backer is. Suddenly widens his voice and approaching some abstract kulning with built echoes.

The album is a close study of this strange voice. It also gives reason to think about röstimprovisationens anatomy. It is as if Backer already sounded like a classic; virtuoso chewing and stretching which we already have heard of and for the past 40 years. Then let him be agile, fast and stand for fabulous throws and condensations. Classically it. Old vanguard is like new.

However. And we have not figured out Raymond Strid percussion. That is what I love to listen to him. Percussion offer him an open field to browse on. Sometimes bumlar he was having some kind of pukan, but usually migrate strange sounds of the skins. Here are accumulating a lot of strange stuff indeed is as vocal as ever Backer.

The beauty of Battle's how he and winds around the rhythms and the consequences of evading them, he will sometimes close, I sense a possible rhythm, but he cuts off immediately and turns it into a heap småskrammel.

Backers voice has its own special sound that is himself. Battle delights in mixing it up as if it were some sort of object he went loose on. Cymbals winds as gauze around his voice sometimes, Battle tightens, suddenly released all together for a little averse vortex. And with one voice becomes a storm's calm center for respiratory and recovery, while the drums seem to be out and going for themselves in the gale.

The album is an ulcer study of one of the most distinctive sound creators of the free Impro. Combat does not seem to know the end of his tonal landscape. At something recognizable, but he seems equally fond surprised every time he rediscovers it. Therefore, this is an album beyond the conventions full of discoveries and a drum set that is constantly delighted cries whoops, javisstja and frisky embrace that elastic, virtuosic voice. The beauty of Battle is that he is so virtuous that not be a virtuoso. Healthier and fresher impro is hard to find. It feels as if the two thought they invented the art of improvisation without expecting some disciples."-Sound Of Music (translated by Google)

Artist Biographies:
"Raymond Strid (born 1956 in Stockholm, Sweden) is a Swedish drummer in the genre of free jazz and the new European improvised music.When Strid picked up drumming, he was inspired by musicians like Han Bennink, Paul Lytton, and Tony Oxley. He started his musical career relatively late. His debut concert was in September 1977, after first playing with a variety of local bands in Stockholm. In 1988 he founded the 'GUSH' trio together with saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and the pianist Sten Sandell. Since that time Strid has played in a series of bands and projects, such as in the trio Guy/Gustafsson/Strid, Marilyn Crispell/Anders Jormin/Raymond Strid and the Free Jazz trio LSB with Fredrik Ljungkvist and Johan Berthling. In 2000 he initiated 'The Electrics' with Axel Dörner, Sture Ericson and Ingebrigt Flaten. The same year Strid joined the Barry Guy New Orchestra. Strid played at numerous festivals of free improvisation in Europe and North America. He also teaches in musical improvisation."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Strid)
