Slow-floating improvised acoustic drone rich in details performed live by the masterly duo Labfield and guests Ståle Storløkken (Supersilent), Mariam Wallentin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums) and Giuseppe Ielasi. The two powerful tracks that make up Labfield's second album were recorded at Kongsberg Jazz Festival and at Musikkhögskolan in Stockholm in 2008. Swedish guitarist David Stackenäs and Norwegian percussionist Ingar Zach are well-known names in the European improvisation scene. Ingar Zach, now based in Spain, has been a key figure in Norwegian improvised music for the last 10 years. Together with guitar player Ivar Grydeland, he founded the prolific improvised music label, Sofa. Zach has played with Derek Bailey, Jon Balke's Magnetic North Orchestra, Huntsville and Sidsel Endresen, among others. Stackenäs is one of Sweden's most merited guitarists with an impressive body of work behind him. Stackenäs and Zach previously worked together in the now-defunct three-piece Tri-Dim, with saxophonist Håkon Kornstad. Stackenäs and Zach decided to work on as a duo, but now with a radically different musical agenda. The musicians themselves describe Labfield as a musical laboratory. Labfield are: David Stackenäs (acoustic guitars, preparations and low budget electronics) and Ingar Zach (prepared bass drum, gongs, percussion, sruti boxes and drone commander).
