Swedish-based nine-piece chamber ensemble Skogen,
founded by pianist Magnus Granberg, performed the founder's 61-minute
Ist Gefallen in den Schnee (Another Timbre, 2012).
The group concocts a sparse soundscape of instruments
that are barely plucked, scraped and touched.
Ko Ishikawa on sho replaced cellist Leo Svensson Sander and vibraphonist
John Eriksson for Rows (2013), a collection of shorter compositions
by Anders Dahl.
Ishikawa, Sander, Eriksson were all featured on
Despairs Had Governed Me Too Long (Another Timbre, 2014),
together with the leader Magnus Granberg,
violinists Angharad Davies and Anna Lindal,
percussionists Erik Carlsson and Henrik Olsson,
and noise makers Toshimaru Nakamura
(no-input mixing board) and Petter Waestberg.
Granberg's 56-minute composition,
recorded during the same sessions as the previous one,
is, if possible, even more skeletal and subdued than
Ist Gefallen in den Schnee.
