Karl Seglem
Lærad (The tree) (NOR CD)

This CD was donated by the artist. We thank him for his support.

"Til Fjellet"
"strange weight of ashes"

The artist writes:
Norway has spawned quite a plethora of distinctive musicians that have made it their enterprise to merge musical traditions, often from their respective homesteads, with contemporary expressions, world music and improvisational jazz. Tenor-saxophonist and goat horn player Karl Seglem looms prominently among these and he is unquestionably one of the great innovators and visionaries of Norwegian music; reinvigorating both Norwegian traditional genres and jazz with his unwavering will to fuse expressions, pursue crossover ventures and embrace new instruments, sounds and perspectives. Seglem has played an important role on the Norwegian jazz scene. His CD-production counts 30 albums (2015).

His first goat horn (only) album is an extraordinare sound-journey. Karl Seglem has the skills to do things in his very own way, and literally "go to the bone" in his music. In collaboration with 9 other invited composers/arrangers he has put together a very special cd-album. Han he does it from the heart. Honest and soulful. Lærad (The tree) is an outstanding release and again a new direction in Seglems music. This time more into the electronic world, setting the unique sounds of his different ancient goat- and antilope-horn in to new contexts - thanks to the different collaborators: Mari Kvien Brunvoll, Andreas Ulvo, Øyvind Mathisen, Erik Honore, Reidar Skår, Lars Jakob Rudjord, Elin Rosseland, Jonas Howden Sjøvaag, Hans Hulbækmo.
