Ahead of the release of their new duo album on March 24th, Mats Gustafsson and Joachim Nordwall are sharing new single “THERE ARE SOME WORLDS WHERE ALL DREAMS DIE (en glad stund)”. Exploring the mind-altering power and sheer physicality of low-end frequencies, Nordwall anchors the track with a colossal black-hole bass pulse. Gustafsson’s shapeshifting saxophone guides the listener through the trance, with long-breathy notes emerging like smoke tendrils from rippling radio static before fragmenting into spidery percussive architectures.
Gustafsson and Nordwall are united by their uncompromising approach to music and their status as renowned collaborators and improviser. Mats Gustafsson is a world-renowned horn player who has pushed the evolution of improvised music with his own unique voice. Joachim Nordwall is a cornerstone of the Swedish musical underground, exploring the extremities of guitar music with The Skull Defekts and solo recordings as The iDealist that access the spiritual and political dimensions of electronic music and dub. Nordwall also runs the esteemed and boundary pushing iDEAL Recordings. Gustafsson and Nordwall’s THEIR POWER REACHED ACROSS SPACE AND TIME-TO DEFY THEM WAS DEATH-OR WORSE finds both musicians pushing their instruments to the limit in order to create a sound experience that is adventurous and fresh.
