Swedish trio Plunge has been in existence since 2001. The Malmö-based trio deals with collectively improvised, acoustic music. Their music is based on interplay, presence, spontaneity and a far-reaching sense of form. Plunge has toured in Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland and the UK and has also released two trio albums on the Swedish indie-label Kopasetic Productions, Plunge (2004) and Refreshingly Addictive (2007).
Besides working as a trio, Plunge also has an ongoing collaboration with renowned Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson. The rewarding collaboration between the trio and Stenson started in the fall of 2002, and has so far resulted in numerous tours of Sweden, several national and European radio broadcasts and two CD's on Kopasetic, Plunge with Bobo Stenson (2005) and Origo (2009).
