“This group is easily one of my favourites in Stockholm. I love how they easily move between spaciousness and density without loosing any of the tension they generate or sacrificing the intricacy of how their four voices combine and respond to one another. For this session we agreed it would be nice for Festen to play 'in-the-round' rather than lining up to face an absent audience and I over ambitiously tried to manage running around between three cameras placed at the group's perimeter, still adjusting the light as the music was underway. I like the lack of any formal start to proceedings and what you hear here is everything we put to tape that Sunday afternoon — the recorder rolling shortly after the group begins to play.”
