Breidablik is made out of improvised pieces recorded on the Danish western countryside, where I grew up. All sounds are made with saxophones and clarinets, but often done with unconventional playing or micing. This involves experimenting with sound and the environment including the beach, inlet, resonances in a huge church bell, directional clarinet improvisations with one microphone on the ground while coming down a 25 meter tall elevator inside a windmill and a nocturnal solo in 5.1. surround from inside a forest with birds singing along.
The cover is designed by photographer Fryd Frydendahl. I hand pressed each record which gives a unique look and touch.
Breidablik can be purchased as vinyl or CD . For a preview please click here to see a video shot in the dunes where the recording also was made.
