Bjärta Färger

by Kriktor

A trio with one bassist and two drummers, playing free music with strict boundaries. Together with their electronic echoes, they create sonic textures ranging from careful and humble to the outright obscene.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kriktor gives space to the smallest sounds in a tense dissection of harmony and rhythm. It's stubborn, but also extremely indecisive. It's music made simple – perhaps even stupid. It's quite possibly like nothing you've ever heard.

Bjärta Färger is the first release from wood and electronics trio Kriktor. Here they explore their trademark close-up miking and time shifts, in a dark and outright digital 38-minute experience. All music is improvised, from the almost obsessively systematic Ögon Blå to the hit-and-run outburst called Rancorn.

Kriktor is a trio, or a sextet if you count the electronics. They do slow, systematic explorations of sound, often leaning towards the monotonic and chaotic. Their playing is heavily affected by the electronics - controllable by each musician - which through simple means are challenging the traditional roles of the instruments. The output is often as much of a surprise for themselves as for the listeners.
