New Album out 14.06!

My trio GARDEN will release their debut album PILGRIM, Friday the 14th of June on Losen Records. It is amazing to finally be able to share this muisc with you all. The album was recorded back in May of last year, and it has taken a year to get everything together. We are so happy to be collaborating with Odd Gjelsnes at Losen Records for this release and very excited for you to hear the music!

Press release for the project:

GARDEN is a trio from Norway consisting of Mathias Hagen on saxophones, Henrik Dalen on double bass and Øystein Aarnes Vik on drums. The project was started in 2016 in a larger format and has existed in its current form since the fall of 2022. The band plays original compositions by Hagen, drawing inspiration from the tone language and rhythm of Middle Eastern music, and the form and voice-leading from the baroque period of European classical music. The members of the group all come from different backgrounds within improvisational music and bring their own unique sound and ideas to create a musical plattform for interplay and creative expression. The result is an exciting sound with clear roots in European energy-jazz and folk music.
