BREATHING SPACE Seglem & Wallumrød
An investigative enquiry in calm waters
Monday 25. June
Price incl. exhibition: kr 100,-
Duration: 45 min
Tenor saxophonist and ram horn player Karl Seglem and keyboardist Christian Wallumrød have both made indelible marks on Norwegian jazz during the past 20 years.
Both musicians are performers with their own ensembles, active on the concert front both in Norway and abroad, and this is not the first time they have shared the stage together.
"For me, music is mostly about listening," Karl Seglem said in an interview with the periodical Folkemusikk earlier this spring. His most recent album is called Ossicles - the Latin name for the three smallest bones in the human body - they are located in the ear.
The duo invites us to join them in an investigative enquiry into sounds and sound waves - and of course, listening. Compositions and fragments of composed material are bound together by improvisation. Norwegian folk tunes, a hymn, a warning signal or a cow call... Seglem will also read from his own anthology of poems "Stilla er ein åker" (Quiet is a Field).
