Series “Improvisation International”
Superimpose & Sofia Jernberg
„The two instruments flow together in one, but also the ideas seem joined together and become inseparable. Müller and Marien present a flawless interaction and a consensus that makes music powerful and gives it direction, meaning and clarity, while it is free, open to interpretation, and full of taking chances and risks. […] one of the 2015 absolute best records.“ (Joacim Nyberg in „Sound Of Music“, 28.9.2015)
The singer Sofia Jernberg (* 1983) grew up in Sweden, Ethiopia and Vietnam and currently lives in Norway. She is concerned with unconventional vocal techniques such as split tones, toneless and distorted vocals. As a soloist in Mats Gustafsson’s Fire! Orchestra she became internationally known and performed as an improviser in many other constellations, too. As a composer she is interested in the combination of improvisation and composition.
In this duet, improvisation is understood as a method of approaching and exploring two worlds: that of the singer, who expresses emotional and sensory states through the various elements of sound and meaning, and that of the pianist, oscillating between the spontaneous preparation of the instrument and the play on the keys, touching imaginary landscapes.
