Barlast

Barlast creates spacious new music with a silence echoing in the background.

The silence can be heard between the notes. Everything unnecessary is stripped away.

Only the name remains as ballast.

From the soothing sound of a telecaster to the calling of the herder instrument mänkeri, from the rumble of a frame drum to a free double bass solo. The aural visions range from 18th century dances to heavy breathing in hazmat suits.

Philip Holm - double bass Heikki Hänninen - guitars Minna Koskenlahti - percussion and flute Sanna Salonen - soprano saxophone, bass clarinet and mänkeri
