Originally released in 2010. Norway's Lemur presents another journey in their quest for a new improvised chamber music: acoustic sound-oriented music from four highly original players. Aigéan is Lemur's follow-up to their acclaimed debut IIIIIIII, from 2008. Continuing their work to develop an improvised chamber music with an emphasis on sonic experimentation and ensemble character, the ensemble delivers a darker and more fragile album. More open to explore the particulars in each piece, the ensemble seems to strengthen their sound, delivering a truly insistent and strongly-crafted album. Lemur has found their position as one of Europe's truly original improvising ensembles. The four instrumentalists combine their work from classic composition, noise, chamber music and free jazz making a highly surprising and unique blend of contemporary sound and attitude. Since their first performances in 2006, the ensemble has done a series of tours in Scandinavia, Europe and Asia to great acclaim. Members include Bjørnar Habbestad (flutes), Hild Sofie Tafjord (horn), Lene Grenager (cello) and Michael Francis Duch (double bass).
