Keyboard wizard and nu jazz pioneer Bugge Wesseltoft, one of the leading creative lights in Norwegian improvised music, appears at the Festival Theatre in March to kick off his 2015 tour. The name of his new project, Trialogue, reflects the artist's ingenuity - and also makes it easy for us to work out that he will be joined by two colleagues in this latest endeavour. In embryonic form, the project began via a collaboration between Wesseltoft and "computer guru”, composer and producer Henr...ik Schwarz, in which both musicians discovered a particularly high level of musical affinity, enriching the world of electro-acoustic improvisational music with new tones to the delight of aficionados of the genre. Whether cloaked in ambient effects or generating throbbing waves of energy, the trio produces music of angelic luminosity, all the while drenching listeners in a fiendishly pulsating sonic meteor shower.
Wesseltoft has already visited Hungary on several occasions, and his records may already be familiar to many. Although it might be difficult to identify traditional jazz elements in certain releases on the Jazzland label he founded, it is well known that Scandinavian improvised music has long been characterised by its abandonment of traditions and search for individual approaches. For his part, Wesseltoft can be likened to Wesseltoft alone.
