First release of the Swedish duo Karin Johansson (piano, prepared piano, kalimba)/ Lisen Rylander Löve (tenor saxophone, voice, kalimba, percussion, live electronics). Fine-veined Crinkle Weed, Wentletrap and The Two Lipped Door Snail are some of the poetically resonating titles on the pianist Karin Johansson and saxophonist Lisen Rylander Löve’s new album Arter (Species). The song titles are also names of plants and animals from the SLU Artdatabanken’s red list of threatened species. The reality that many species disappear completely from our planet yearly is what the duo shines a light on with their new album. The music is completely improvised.
Karin Johansson can also be heard with her group Ord, in trio with Nina de Heney and Henrik Wartel, duo with Finn Loxbo and with Jonny Wartel 4.
Lisen Rylander Löve recently released her first album under her own name and can be heard with the jazz quartets The Splendor and Here’s To Us. She is also known for her work with the electronic group Midaircondo.
