Norwegian antler music 1999-2009
66 min CD in digipack with 16 page booklet
With contributions from Johannes Bergmark, Tore H. Bøe, (origami republika/boe/ka)  Alan Courtis and Roberto Conlazo (Reynols), Joakim Solvang and Fridtjof Nansen. Mastered by Kai Mikalsen (Kobi, origami ka)

To be released in late february/early march 2011, “Fjær og Jern” (Feather and iron) is a collection of mostly live material but also some studio tracks by Hornorkesteret. Using stringed and bowed reindeer antlers, bones, rocks, coffee percolator, drums, flutes and field recordings, the group has made their unbelieveable music since 1999, and this is a collection of some of their best tracks. The material includes an hommage to Roald Amundsen with vocals by Fridtjof Nansen, field recordings of black grouse courting rituals in Klæbu, close miced campfire sizzle and pop, a norwegian version of the traditional “Bury me not on the lone prairie” set on a boat in the arctic, sheets of ambient polar soundscapes, impressions of Norwegian nature and collaborations with Tore H. Bøe, Johannes Bergmark, Alan Courtis and Roberto Conlazo.

The sneak peak will be available at www.hornorkesteret.no for a limited time only, so be sure to check it out!
