2012 release. When Kjetil Husebø released his album Adaptation in 2010, the Norwegian newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv made use of a metaphor linked to the natural world, as his music was described as operating within the realm of jazz and electronica in the same manner as powdery snow covers a steep mountain, thus accentuating its subtle and funky characteristics. With Contradictions, Kjetil presents a musical universe that comprises other musical qualities than before. Being the artistic core of Optical Substance, Kjetil has previously released two albums. Contradictions constitutes the first album that is entirely Kjetil's work. This album features Kjetil in musical improvisation on a magnificent Steinway grand piano recorded live at Ibsenhuset/Audiopol Studio with Audun Kleive as sound technician. It was mixed and mastered by Reidar Skaar. The music on this release combines melodic, lyric, and pensive passages with a refined, abstract, dark and free-flowing atmosphere. As a musician, Kjetil gathers inspiration from a muster of sources such as jazz, classical music, folk music, ambient, contemporary music and pop/rock. As a pianist, such masterful musicians as Bugge Wesseltoft, Jon Balke, Marcin Wasilewski and Django Bates, among others, have influenced him. Kjetil Husebø: Steinway D Grand Piano and live electronics/sampling.
