Double concert November 9th in Bergen, Norway Terje Isungset/Hilmar Jensson duo TYFT Trio Venue: Kvarteret

Bergen Student radio is not normally a concert arranger. But when we heard that Tyft trio were going on a short Scandinavian tour, we couldnt let the oppurtunity pass. This great trio consists of Hilmar Jensson on guitar/composition/laptop, Andrew D'angelo on altsax/clarinet/laptop and Jim Black on drums/laptop. Last year they released Tyft on the Canadian label Songlines, and on November 8th they will release their second CD Ditty Blei. Their music is both free-jazz explotions, complicated compositions and soft, abstract soundscapes created by the electonics. Its a successful fusion of New York avant-garde jazz and Icelandic experimental music. Despite geographical boundaries, TYFT are having many tours and creating their own unique sound.

Norwegian percussonist Terje Isungset was the first in the world to make a CD with instruments of ice. He uses stones and sticks which he picks up while hiking in the mountains, and he has a very personal drumset. He plays Norwegian folk music and improvises freely. For the past years he has increased his touring abroad, with Swedish group Groupa, and duos with Arve Henriksen and Didier Petit. Hilmar Jensson has played on several of Terje Isungsets CDs. But the gig in Bergen is one of few occasions where they play as a duo, and the music is free-improvised. This will be a challenge for the musicians and the result will be fresh and unheard music.
