A duo between Swedish guitarist Finn Loxbo (Fire! Orchestra) and bass clarinetist Erik Blennow Calalv, in a low-key, moody and tranquil album of improvisations with titles implying their unhurried approach to their dialog--"Clouds", "Moving, Dancing", and "Ryoanji"-- making a beautiful album of nearly ambient but decidedly determined music.

sample the album:
A duo between guitarist Finn Loxbo (Fire! Orchestra) and bass clarinet Erik Blennow Calälv in a low-key, elongated and at the same time surprisingly dense music. The five tracks are relative short, between 5 and 8 minutes each, but each piece creates a distinctive sound. Loxbo's guitar, like Blennow Calel's bass clarinet, is played in an unconventional way, searching and exploring and using unusual techniques and aspects of their instruments not typically intended for sound. Their work is meditative and suggestive, with titles like "Ghosts", "Clouds", "Moving, Dancing", and "Ryoanji"--known as the name of a zenbuddish temple in Kyoto, Japan--, and ending with "Ayram". Though improvised, the music has a composed aspect to it, and the stability and confidence of their playing determines the mood and placid strength of their work.
