Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"You may label the music recorded in Ticket! as free jazz, but nothing here conforms with what you usually hear with that identity. Why? Because alto saxophonist Mia Dyberg, double bassist Asger Thomsen and drummer Dag Magnus Narvesen transpose to music the processes used by William S. Burroughs in his poetry, and not only the cut-up techniques of that Beat Generation icon: there's much of the playfulness, the pulse and the "silver smoke of dreams" which define Burroughs' writing.

The music is energetic and full of groove, sometimes melodic, others with a hint of the bluesy AACM influence, the group improvisations never hiding the individual contributions of these three Scandinavian musicians.

Dyberg is a Danish saxophonist, improviser and composer based in Berlin and one of the new exciting voices on the European jazz scene, crossing sound experimentation and the characteristic Swedish melancholy in collaborations with improvisers like Herb Robertson, Clayton Thomas, Tristan Honsinger and Axel Dorner.

Thomsen is a constant presence in the Copenhagen scene, be it alternative rock, creative jazz or avant-garde music, and Narvesen is becoming a percussionist of first choice for many improvising European and American luminaries.

Together, they're either explosive and impressionistic, wild and lyrical."-Clean Feed

"I discovered free improvised music at the age of 16. As a drummer who was quite fed up with just filling the "time-keeping-role", the first encounter with musicians as Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman and Peter Brötzmann altered my musical course quite considerably. The intense musical energy and the immense presence of the musicians simply blew my young brain away.

Since then, I have been fortunate enough to be able to expand my musical perception through playing with truly great musicians (to whom I can never be thankful enough), listening to a tiny bit of the music available in this world (some of it introduced to me by friends to whom I also owe thanks) and through composing music on my own, some of which you can find under SOUNDS in the menu to the left."
