Tromsø Kunstforsyning

This ensemble plays improvised music in which the individual musicians had a broad scope and the compositional point of departure was relatively open. This has been one of the main musical principles in the work of Tromsø Kunstforsyning (TK) since it was founded. Taking improvisation as its starting point, the ensemble has collaborated with musicians from a variety of genres in developing its concept further. Several of these musicians appear on this recording.TK’s collaborations with a number of artists in a variety of artistic genres, such as Liv-Hanne Haugen (dancer), Bernt Bjørn (actor), Nikolas Horne (light and sound designer) and Kristin Eriksen Bjørn (director), have helped to promote diversity in the northern music scene, and have established new forms of interplay among improvisational artists.
