NEW RELEASE: Move quintet released a really amazing and special album back in 2017, and now our live performance oat the Moers Festival in 2019 is finally out! This exciting, relaxing, textured, melodic, layered instant composed jewel is now available on the great Polish label Fundacja Słuchaj! Have a listen here. Hope you'll enjoy it! 

Happy to announce that my octet DAMANA has gotten two new crew members onboard for future musical adventures: The amazing Klaus Holm will breathe some serious depth from the baritone saxophone and bass clarinet. The young and upcoming solid-as-a-rock trumpeter Lyder Øvreås Røed will take care of the upper part of the wind spectrum and I am very excited to hear what these players will be bringing to my music!

In the same breath, I would like to extend a warm thank you to my dear friends André Roligheten and Hayden Powell, without whom the journey so far would have not been possible.
