descriptions, reviews, &c.

A fully free improvisation of subtly disruptive, extended electroacoustic mastery, recorded during the Svensk Musikvår Festival at Aliasteatern, Stockholm in 2021. The piece was conceived by Mats Gustafsson, who performs on saxophone & flute, with Anna Lindal on violin, Mats Lindstrom on electronics, effects & sampler and Joachim Nordwall on analog synths, effects & tapes. The performances were streamed live during the pandemic with no audience. The first piece is the concert performance, the shorter 2nd and 3rd tracks were preparations for the actual concert. Each performer approaches their instrument with extended and advanced techniques, the electronics and synthetics highly controlled, merging and weaving with the acoustic elements.
