    Porvoo, FI | 8:00pm

    Duo "Ennenkuulumatonta" - Duo "Unprecedented" “Dazzling electric improvisation” from an unprecedented duo of electric kantele and saxophone. Space, like improvisation, holds unlimited possibilities. Kantele player Eija Kankaanranta and saxophonist Esa Pietilä explore the musical space for new galaxies. With bold exploration and experimentation they will get there as their musical journey starts at the first note. This musical journey and surprising moments that arise spontaneously and a strong dramatic arc are the most important things instead of defined forms and written compositions. In these skillful hands improvisations take shape as compositions one couldn’t think of hearing beforehand - “Unprecedented!”

Status

Liberty Ship´s new album recorded, just be patient and wait until we mix & master it, then it`ll be out in no time! Releasing info TBA...

Press

“Pietilä´s uncompromising approach, search for new angles and refusal to walk the trodden path betray his lofty ambitions, which comes across wonderfully in his most recent trio discs "Direct" and "Travel of fulica atra"”
