descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The piano is a vast instrument with a long history. If three pianists with highly dissimilar personalities play three pianos at the same time,would it be possible to get away from what is known as the piano sound?

3 pianos is an album made by a unique piano ensemble consisting of three musicians with different backgrounds and experience. The curiosity for the piano and its countless possibilities was the outset whereas the wish to bend the common boundaries for piano music was the background for this project. The ensemble makes music with clear connections to the music and the ideas of the twentieth century. The musicians develop the material in their own way by focusing on elements like tuning, register, intervals and dynamics. The material includes both written compositions and improvised pieces. The trio has a sophisticated way of instant- composing, and this quality reflects both the musicians individuality as well as there orientation towards interplay."

Also available on vinyl LP.

Artist Biographies:

"Ayumi Tanaka is a Japanese pianist, composer and improviser living in Norway. She leads her own trio together with drummer Per Oddvar Johansen and fellow Nakama-member Christian Meaas Svendsen on bass. Her curiosity about the possibilities of combining ideas from different styles of music and thoughts make her music unique and fresh in an organic way. Attracted by the communicative powers of music, her motivation for creating music is to open the listener's heart, and create a space which is free from ethnicity, culture and history."

"Christian Wallumrød (1971) - acoustic and electronic keyboards / composer

Christian Wallumrød has worked as a musician and composer since 1992, and he is considered one of the most prominent and influential musicians of his generation in Norway.

Following his debut on ECM Records ("No Birch", issued in 1996), he has released a string of albums with Christian Wallumrød Ensemble (CWE) on the same label, all to considerable critical acclaim. The latest record 'Outstairs' was rewarded with the Norwegian Grammy (Spellemannsprisen 2013). While being the composer and leader of his own ensemble, Wallumrød also focusses strongly on improvisation with another longstanding collaboration, the French/Norwegian group Dans Les Arbres (DLA), also with two releases on ECM. CWE and DLA has been his main body of work over the last 10-12 years, and both groups are touring extensively. A quite recent project is Brutter, Christian's collaboration with drummer brother Fredrik, a duo dive into human and machine driven pulses. Early 2015 is release time for his first solo album named Pianokammer (on the Norwegian label Hubro).

Wallumrød has had long term collaborations with groups and artists such as Sidsel Endresen, Close Erase, Audun Kleive. He regularly gives solo performances and he has participated in a variety of ad hoc constellations with artists such as Susanne Sundfør, Nils Petter Molvær, Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer, Karl Seglem, Jan Bang, DJ Strangefruit, Oslo Sinfonietta, Kim Myhr.

Over the last few years Wallumrød has been commissioned to write for smaller chamber groups (such as BIT20, Håkon Stene, Barolo, BOA). The Ultima Festival (Oslo) and the AngelicA Festival in Bologna commissioned and put on his orchestra piece 'When celebrities dream of casual sleep (second try)' in 2013. For their 50th anniversary festival in 2014 Kongsberg Jazzfestival commissioned a piece from Wallumrød with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra."
