descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Kume is the second album from the duo collaboration of bassist Anders Berg (SE) and guitarist Tellef Øgrim (NO). The 9 tracks of this release are all based on improvisations on analogue or electronic (soft) instruments.

KUME will be released at at May 17.

Anders plays acoustic and electric basses. Tellef plays fretted and unfretted (normal and baritone) guitars, the Hadron Particle synthesizer as well as other instruments.

Their background from rock, jazz and other groove oriented styles constitute the raw material for the two musicians adventures into the large and unpredictable field of free improvisation.

November was the first output from the duo collaboration between bassist Anders Berg (SE) and guitarist Tellef Øgrim (NO). With background from jazz,rock, improv and groove oriented styles the two musicians carve out their own domain from the rich soil of contemporary Scandinavian improvised music.

November was chosen as this year's ten best album for 2014 by reviewer Chris Haines at and was accepted for release by, a curated outlet for improv, noise, contemporary and beyond.

Berg and Øgrim have earlier met and played in quartet constellation with Henrik Wartel and Gunnar Backman in den Haag and Gothenburg."-Tellef Ogrim website

"...the pair have created a fine album of improvised duo pieces, which also contains a healthy amount of electronic-based music enabling them, at times, to create a much fuller sound, and work with an extended palette of colours and rhythms".-Chris Haines,
