Patrik Ehrnborg guitars Mike Lloyd trumpet & electronics Johan Björklund drums & electronics
Like three unidentified flying objects in the sky, Mike Lloyd, Johan Björklund & Patrik Ehrnborg are slowly orbiting around each other, creating an elastic musical universe which at any point can be turned upside down and flung into another dimension.
I met Danilo Perez last year (the pianist in Wayne Shorters quartet) and we discussed the term "comprivising". To create music as a collective by using improvisation as compositional device and vice versa.
This album was recorded in that spirit during two days in December last 2015 at Element Studios in Gothenburg by Linus Andersson.
We listened intently to each other, tried out different ideas, turned corners, trailed off in separate directions to re-unite at a new meeting point further down the road.
Focusing on tiny details. Blurring out to a bigger picture and zooming straight back in. A fast curve ball defying the rules of gravity. From clear sky to gritty dirt in a split second .
We related to each other in the most confusing and clear way possible. This music is the result of those two days. Simply creating music in the moment to carry us home.
So take a listen and hopefully you will enjoy the ride. I know those two days made us smile.
