Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"ORD was formed a few years ago, and Hemligheter pa vagen (Secrets on the way) is the band's first album.

There is a text of Tranströmer's from the short memoir 'Memories Look at Me' that has inspired Karin particularly for this album: "I acarry inside myself my earlier faces, as a tree contains its rings. The sum of them is me. The mirror sees only my latest face, while I know all my previous ones." I look at the photo of the album cover. It pictures a girl in a doorway. She looks straight into the camera. It is an image of Karin Johansson when ten years old.

We carry all our different ages and memories with us, they walk next to us each day, but there are gaps between moments of recognition. Karin Johansson and her four fellow musicians are listening in with a finely tuned presence. They help us on the receiving end to stop, see, and simply listen. And I can't help wondering what the poet and pianist Transtromer would have been thinking or feeling if he had been able to sit in on their conversation."-Havtorn


Also available as a compact disc.
