Many already well-trodden paths lead to this first trio collaboration project between these Swedish improvisers. Uuskyla, Backman and Berg have earlier been united in both a quintet and a quartet (Tinnitus Therapy Trip & Glas (5) – Live At Brötz Gothenburg and Leavings with Mike Lloyd). Additionally, Uuskyla and Berg play on a regular basis in the trio Uuskyla Øgrim & Berg. In this recording from February 2020 a "friendly rage" of love and rage, subtlety and power, sensitivity and brutality“ can be heard. One could add the word humour from listening to the 1:30 short track I´m stuck. Stuck, but not surrendering, for this imaginative recording keeps searching for new solutions and hidden roads ahead be it with Anders Berg's hypnotic-insisting bass playing, Backman's bubbling electronics or Uuskylas never-ending conversations with his drum heads.
