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 (

"Guitarist Mattias Windemo was born in Sandviken in the north of Sweden in 1970.At the age of fifteen he became a student at the prestigious swedish music school of Ingesund in Arvika. Two years later he became one of the youngest ever students at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Since then he has been in great demand, established as a guitarist in variety musical contexts. Mattias and the guitar maker Jan Helg`e together created a special built twinneck guitar in 1990. This custom-made instrument is tuned in quarters with scalloped fingerboards allowing it to be played with one hand on each guitar neck, much in the way a keyboard is played. The result is previously unheard of dimensions of music and unique possibilities of expression. This makes Mattias internationally a "one-of-a-kind" guitarplayer who continually develops and explors his own music.

Mattias Windemo has cooperated with musicians as Lindha Svantesson, Joakim Milder, Gösta Rundqvist, Karin Krogh, Mats Öberg m.fl."
