Morten Qvenild and Gard Nilssen, previously know as the duo sPacemonKey, have returned as the duo Skrim; the magical musical interaction they have refined for over 10 years, just as present. This time they are extended with guests Ståle Storløkken and Stian Westerhus – a constellation that formed under Gard Nilssen’s redicency at Moldejazz 2019. These four improvising musical wanderers went in the studio, or out for a walk if you will. They walked on crooked paths into a wild musical landscape that you are guaranteed to have never heard before. Skrim explores an area where the reckless and sometimes beautiful improvisational music meets a fragmented, motley, sometimes bulky and other times delicious and danceable rhythmic world. On Skrim's crooked path you will find sci-fi electronics, raffle on the moon, electronic pianos from the 70s, running arpeggiator synths from the 80s, a wild dynamic, drum machines and old drum kits, friction, flow, dirty bass, riffs, Hammond organ, energy, darkness, joy, and rot. It is as if Blade Runner or the monster from Stranger Things or the lynx from Skrim inhabit the orchestra.
