Pianist and live electronics engineer Kjetil Husebø presents his solo album Sources, where he further develops his concept and expression of previous album Contradictions (2012). All About Jazz wrote the following about Contradictions: "... the success of this album is based on the cumulative effect of his disarming, innocent and highly melodic ambiance, wooden lingers long after the album has finished. An intriguing musical journey." Kjetil has also released two albums under the name Optical Substance (Adaptation in 2010 and Sub Luna in 2005), where the music was composed, programmed, produced and performed with numerous guest musicians. The solo project, however, is improvised and focuses mainly on the grand piano. He explores his personal, melodic, rhythmic, abstract, playful, flowing, sound-based, drone-like and contemplative musical universe with the Steinway grand piano and live sampling/electronics. In six out of a total of ten tracks he connects the different organic sounds of the grand piano with live sampling/electronics. The title Sources refers to both the piano as an instrument and the piano sound as a source for live sampling, not to mention numerous sources that have influenced Husebø's musical expression. The music straddles the border between jazz, classical, contemporary, ambient and electronica. The album was recorded live in the studio -- i.e. without overdubbing, in Audiopol Studio/Ibsenhuset in Skien with Audun Kleive as sound engineer. Husebø also mixed the album in his own studio in Oslo. The album was mastered by Helge Sten at Audio Virus Lab in Oslo.
