Frank Kvinge; Synnove Rognlien: Wild Birds
ProduktinfoEin Duo mit sehr individuellen Elementen aus Folk, Jazz, Rhythmus; eine wundervoll poetische Stimme und eine vielschichtige Gitarrenbegleitung spannen einen Bogen vom Mittelalter zur Gegenwart.
Product InformationSynnøve and Frank met a few years ago by chance at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio. This meeting led to several concerts as the Kvinge & Rognlien duo. Frank recorded some of these concerts and it is the best tracks from these concerts that we hear on this CD. In addition, you will hear three studio recordings. Frank has many years of cooperation with all sorts of musicians from many different genres during his years in the US. This experience, coupled with Synnøve ́s unique Nordic song expression, characterizes Wild Birds. The lyrics, mostly written by Synnøve, binds the music together. These songs have different origins both in time and place. Most of the songs were composed by Kvinge & Rognlien, but there are also words and music that stretch all the way back to 1100.
As a bonus, they play two of their favourites cover versions.
This is a duo with strong individualistic elements from folk, jazz, meditative and rhythmic music where Rognlien ́s poetic vocals and Kvinge ́s playful and complex guitar playing are a demonstration of beautiful music – taking us from Medieval to present time. Wild Birds is mixed and mastered by Jan Erik Kongshaug at Rainbow Studio. He has brought clarity of expression to the guitar and vocals that takes us far beyond what could usually be expected from a guitar/ vocal duo. Synnøve and Frank invite us on a musical journey – and just like wild birds, these songs come from different places and different ages.
