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
