* 75 copies limited edition * In times of vinyl shortage and production backlog, resourcefulness is key. In keeping with his well-established practice of replacing original materials with surrogates to generate new sonic experiences, Sven-Åke Johansson has devised a digital reinterpretation of the historic flexidisc in the shape of a 10inch rubber disc with engraved QR codes that let buyers access the music online.

About the music: "The six compositions titled ‘stumps’ are based on a potential for variation with falling and rising short signals (notes). Repeating the theme four times establishes the piece and provides a solid ground for the ensuing improvisations. A simple repetition of the theme at the end rounds off the composition as a kind of return. The underlying tempi of the themes are rather calm, there is no fixed tempo but more of a free positioning. Within the improvisations the rhythm section operates according to the principle of ‘free tempo/dynamic vibration’. This produces swing. This is my opus magnum for small ensembles." - Sven-Åke Johansson
