Info: 

Award-winning Karl Seglem, reknowned for his innovative and emotive

world-jazz, joins forces with the top of Norwegian folk- and jazz

musicians. His concept-album, the 2LP masterpiece Mytevegar (2023) has

it´s "rebirth" on a new cd-release to come Oct.18.2024. An international

release with promotion and distribution focus on Germany and Portugal.

Norwegian reviews of Mytevegar was overwhelming: "It's tough, exciting,

and together with the poems, it makes Mytevegar one of the best and

most important Norwegian albums of the entire 2023, regardless of any

genre." Roy Ervin Solstad, Stereo +


The theme: The red line: Climate change, loss of nature, ecoside,

antrophocene: "Deep fear. Deep tranquility" is the title of his poetry

collection (2022) which he reads from on the recordings. Together with

his great band he´s presenting a combine world-, prog- and experimental

jazz kind of music, taking the listener straight to the new landscapes

of Norway: stone deserts, cabin-hotels and industry, versus cut down of

old forests, destroyed landscapes for useless windmills, polluted fjords

for salmon-growth and a goverment that opens up for more fossil growth.

Among others. Norway became extremely rich very fast, and money do trig

different and often simple behavior in our human brains. Music can give

us hope and a feeeling of beeing together (as a community). This album

is both deeply poetic and dreamy, but also expresses dark fear and a

melancholy every human beeing might feel now and then for the state of

our planet we all share, and should stand together taking care of.
