.... and here a brand new and exclusive work with HEIKKI LINDGREN, which gave us a special pleasure. Finnish folklore instruments combined with ambient textures and drones.
Mathias Grassow : Ambient drones & textures.
Heikki Lindgren : Bowed lyre (Finnish jouhikko), overtone flutes D and F, wooden horn (Finnish lulletti).
Jouhikko (bowed lyre), overtone flute and lulletti (wooden horn) are some of the instruments from Finnish archaic tradition. In this album they are used in modern context, but still in the same long sound aesthetics as they were played centuries ago in Finnish Karelia.
Many thanks to the inspiring soundworks and field recordings of Heikki Lindgren :
This album is the beginning of something new and experimental. To be continued.....
