12/6 (木) BALLROGG JAPAN TOUR 2012



Ballrogg began life as a duo: somewhere between Paul Bley and Eric Dolphy, on the one hand, and Morton Feldman on the other. The arrival of guitarist Ivar Grydeland (of the act Huntsville, formerly on Rune Grammofon but now also signed to Hubro) introduces a hint of Americana – also suggested in the album title and in “Swedish Country”, the opening track. It might sound a strange mix, but bassist Roger Arntzen is also a member of In The Country, who themselves combine worship of Bley and Feldman with an equal love of Ryan Adams. Country music might be the home of the song, but there´s no singing here; it´s country on clarinet, less Taylor Swift than Nels Cline or BJ Cole. And Americana is only one influence at play: at other times, the record calls to mind neo-classical acts like Clogs, Yann Tiersen, Hauschka and Philip Jeck. This is panoramic music, restrained and expansive: maybe it doesn´t matter if the landscape it overlooks is coated in sand or in ice.

He is a regular together with Shining-leader Jørgen Munkeby with the noise-rock-jazz-quartet Chrome Hill and has teamed up with Chrome Hill-drummer Torstein Lofthus as two thirds of Håvard Stubø Trio. He has also worked with downtown NYC icon Marc Ribot, Bob Hoffnar, BJ Cole, Neil Metcalfe, Terry Day, John Russell, Sidsel Endresen, Susanna Wallumrød, Frida Ånnevik and Stian Carstensen. Arntzen has performed at festivals and clubs in Scandinavia, Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, China, Taiwan, Russia, Malaysia and Mongolia.

Ivar Grydeland (guitar, pedal steel guitar) has been a musician and a composer for a decade. He has been touring and recording with his own bands, ad hoc projects and project based ensembles at big festivals and clubs in Norway, Sweden, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Austria, Germany, France, Canada, USA, Greece, Argentina, Spain, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia and Japan. Grydeland is currently most frequently playing with the quartet Dans Les Arbres (Wallumrød, Zach, Charles, Grydeland), who released their debut album on ECM in April 2008. He´s also active with the trio Huntsville (two releases on Rune Grammofon) and has a key role as a guitarist and pedal steel player with the Norwegian singer Hanne Hukkelberg. Grydeland plays his acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo and pedal steel guitar often in the direction of Country & Western, with a facination for streching the possibilities in the sound quality itself in his instruments.
