Ytterlandet means outer country. Emanating from the remote north of Europe, three explorers are mixing their own brew of improv. Curious listeners are invited to experience the discoveries of their sound chemistry - where the ear may be exposed to unknown landscapes, as well as reminiscenses of freejazz and noice. A sound palette with ingredients like: edgy guitar, sax/clarinet optionally prepared and/or deconstructed, and an extended field of percussion with things intended or unintended for music. Each time a new sonic picture is drawn on the blank canvas of time. And, interestingly enough, the picture that is manifesting itself will not look/sound the same for any two listeners...
Sture Ericson (SE) – sax, clarinet has long experience within experimental music drawing from working bands with Axel Dörner, Raymond Strid, Joe Williamson and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, to ad hoc epiphanies with Derek Bailey, Otomo Yoshihide and Paul Lovens.
Henrik Olsson (SE) – guitar, focuses on exploring the sonic possibilities of both the electric and acoustic guitar. He can be heard in various constellations: bands like his own well-reviewed Penumbra Ensemble, the LoFi-trash-drone project The Hum and the trio EHM.
Håkon Berre (NO) – percussion, being among the fortunate collaborators with Peter Brötzmann, he has expanded his musical territory into a multitude of directions in various collaborations with Phil Minton, Liudas Mockunas, Peter Friis Nielsen and Susana Santos Silva.
