'himmeltindan' is based on the
musical diary of strøm, who spent in the spring of 2006 a
semester working abroad on the lofoten island vestvågøy.
the two musicians developed out of their improvised recordings a
cd concept that could be described as a modular sound system: there
are 2'432'902'008'176'640'000 possibilities to listen to 'himmeltindan'.
here is when you would have to turn on the shuffle or random mode
on your cd player. the twenty tracks are linked musically and form â€“in
any order- correlations and continuations in terms of sound, content,
form as well as time. they usually contain a key piece and a linking
piece that connects the track before with the one afterwards. but
metamorphoses and variations are misleading: linking pieces can become
key pieces and vice versa, thus creating variable compositions of
the basic form. in this way this cd surprises with a new form and
new correlations every time you listen to it.
