'The debut record of LUFT – is a two volume album of exceptional explorations within the bagpipe and reed universe —— unknown music of poetic beauty and high energy cascades. Fast moving changes in texture and layers vs static repetitions and alternatives densities and melody treatments!
Vol 1 – is focusing on the interaction between the two persons/ instruments – with a huge variety in extended techniques and various ways of treating
the instruments – leading to an improvised music never heard of.
Vol 2 – is focusing on states of the mind. slow moving micro tonal drone activities and layers of interferences. Sounds mixing and melting together in a body of musical poetry and beauty.”
