Info for Acoustic
Close and intense moods, strong melodies and a soulful musical interaction. That’s what the duo Kristin & Kvistum is about.
Kristin Sevaldsen and Lars A. Kvistum summarize five years of collaboration with a new acoustic duo album. The main content of the material has been obtained from each of their previous album releases, but here the songs are liberated from the original band arrangements. What remains is just soprano saxophone and grand piano.
The music is fragile and naked, but it breathes and lives.
The album also offers a bunch of brand new songs. Everything was recorded during one intense day at Stable Studios in Oslo.
The idea behind this album is first and foremost to present the lyric material in a clean and stripped form. Acoustic is an honest album that easily allows the music to be reproduced live on stage. With the album, the audience can go home and listen more to the music they have just heard, while new organizers will know what they are getting when they want to engage this duo for their event.
Here are delicate improvisations, with clear references to jazz, folk music and film music. The musicians let the listener come close. They l et the saxophonist breathe and the creaking from the piano choke and the pedals can be heard in the recording. It is intimate and completely acoustic. Saxophonist and composer Kristin Sevaldsen has released four solo albums and has mostly worked as a solo artist with a clear musical signature.
