Conditions For A Piece Of Music
RCD 2065 - 2007
Ultralyd is Kjetil Møster (The Core) on sax, Anders Hana (MoHa!) on guitar, Kjetil D. Brandsdal (Noxagt) on bass and Morten J. Olsen (MoHa!) on drums and vibraphone. This is their third album since the band was formed by legendary sax player Frode Gjerstad in 2004. Gjerstad left after their second album ”Chromosome Gun” (Load Records) to be replaced by Møster. During two extensive European tours and several studio sessions Ultralyd's direction has slowly changed from a rather chaotic free rock approach towards composition and more structured forms of improvisation, experimenting with different layers and altered roles of the instruments, integrating elements from contemporary and electronic music, funk and doom metal and ending up with an album that might be classified as something akin to the improvised chamber rock King Crimson were doing around 1973.
