”Øgrim continues his exploratory journey on November, this time in collaboration with bass player Anders Berg. The pair have created a fine album of improvised duo pieces, which also contains a healthy amount of electronic-based music enabling them, at times, to create a much fuller sound, and work with an extended palette of colours and rhythms.” - The Free Jazz Collective (frejazzblog.org)

”Blending improvisation with electronics-based music, Wagon 8 is a strong debut for Øgrim's less-than-conventional instrument and collective.” - All About Jazz.

“It is areally a good alternative against the mainstream.” - Department of Virtuosity, Poland.

“Throughout the adventure is playful and risky the way this sort of music is meant to be.” - Improjazz, France.

“An unusual set of originals that continually oscillate between structured sound and completely free improvisation.” - Apopsy, Greece.
