°♥° “One of my greatest sources of inspiration has been exploring my own instrument, finding new sounds, discords, really anything that can evoke a new mood or association. This has certainly also influenced the way I listen to music and my interplay with other musicians. My collaboration with Øyvind and Stephan began in 2013, when they contributed to my first solo album, Blikkspor. Now, when the time was ripe for a new record, it felt natural to expand my collaboration with these two generous and uncompromising musicians, whom I have admired for a long time. Working together with these ‘sound hunters’ has definitively opened the doors to many new rooms for me and my music. Our backgrounds are very different, but with improvisation as a common platform we have tried to find a language, or a space, one could say, where all three of us can feel at home. Some of the material is based on my themes, but a lot of it was improvised in the studio. I hope we have succeeded in making a record that also opens up a space to the people who might listen to it.” Erlend Apneseth
°≡° “Like poets, Apneseth, Hegg–Lunde and Meidell conveyed a compelling story with a spare vocabulary whose every syllable and every grammatical twist carried weight.”

°≡° “Blikkspor”, Hardanger fiddler Erlend Apneseth’s critically acclaimed debut album, presented fiddle tunes, Apneseth’s original compositions and improvisations side by side. On this, his follow–up album, he ventures further into an open landscape as part of a trio with extensive experience within improvisational music and rock.
°≡° Erlend Apneseth from Jølster is one of Norway’s foremost young fiddlers. He competes in the elite Category A in the National Contest for Traditional Music, and has received so many prizes and awards that dusting his mantelpiece has become nearly a full–time job. Erlend studied at the Ole Bull Academy in Voss, as well as with Håkon Høgemo.
°≡° Erlend is a performer who stands with both feet firmly planted in the Norwegian folk music tradition, but who at the same time improvises and searches for new modes of expression — all the while with the sounds of the Hardanger fiddle and folk music as his point of departure. He has collaborated with musicians from a variety of different genres, has been a soloist with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and has played with larger improvisational ensembles, folk–and jazz–based groups, overtone and joik singer Torgeir Vassvik, and poet Erlend O. Nødtvedt. In 2012 he received Grappa’s New Artist Award, and the following year he released his debut album, “Blikkspor”, produced by Arve Henriksen, which received glowing reviews in the Norwegian and international media. Drummer Øyvind Hegg–Lunde (Electric Eye, Building Instrument, José González) and guitarist Stephan Meidell (Cakewalk, Krachmacher) joined him on the last track of the album, and Erlend found this collaboration so inspiring that he asked them to form a trio with him. Meidell and Hegg–Lunde had worked together as an improvisational duo for several years before Erlend invited them to participate in his project. For the past few years Erlend, Stephan and Øyvind have played regularly, and have let their music develop slowly but surely. By the time they went into the studio they were full of ideas, songs, sketches and the joy of improvisation.
°≡° “Det andre rommet” is a lovely, inquisitive and adventurous album that takes the music in new and unexpected directions. It was recorded at Hallibakken Lydproduksjon, mixed by Randall Dunn at Avast in Seattle (Splashgirl, Earth, Thurston Moore) and mastered by Jørgen Træen at Lydgrotten in Bergen.

°≡° Og hele veien er det hardingfela som står i sentrum. Apneseth er en mester i faget, og skal man absolutt sammenligne han med noen, så må det bli Nils Økland. Vi får 10 låter hvor fire er gjort av de tre i fellesskap, mens resten er skrevet av Apneseth, og hele veien føler jeg at dette er en felespiller som har funnet grunntonen i hardingfela. Jeg føler at den musikken som her blir framført, er akkurat slik som den som, en gang i tiden hadde tenkt at hardingfela skulle brukes. Musikken er sart, og mye er basert på den norske folkemusikkskatten. Men samtidig tilfører Apneseth så mye personlig i musikken, at det helt og holdent blir hans egen. Hør for eksempel på den fine «Sapporo», som låter både norsk og japansk samtidig. Meidell og Hegg-Lunde er egentlig mest med her for å gjøre musikken mer variert, for det er Apneseth som står i sentrum for denne musikken fra start til mål. Og etter hvert som man hører på den noen ganger, dukker det opp nye nyanser og ideer. Og hele veien er musikken spennende og fascinerende. — Salt Peanuts, Jan Granlie (N)
