Jerry Johansson, Dan Fröberg and Alexandra E. Lindh

Oct 13, Sunday, 3pm. Nordic Watercolor Museum in Skärhamn, Tjörn, Sweden. Jerry Johansson, Dan Fröberg and Alexandra E. Lindh will perform an exclusive concert. Circles expands and changes, the spaces inbetween vibrates and the room reflects and memorizes. Just like in dreamsleep, various themes revolves around the epicentres of their own orbits. Entwines, mixes together, melts, resounds. The sounds of glass instruments, swarmandala, shruti boxes and lights, played by Dan Fröberg and Alexandra E. Lindh, challenges the master sitar player Jerry Johansson, trained in the classical Indian tradition. The music performed is ancient, but also wholly contemporary, in where the instruments are allowed to meet and communicate in the everpresent now. The concentration is totally absorbing, and the thin lines between composition and improvisation remains a secret of exactly what is what... They all intertwine, the calm surface soon enough reveals a much more complex and irregular nervous system."
