A Winter's Night At the Crooked Forest
Sheriffs Of Nothingness are Kari Rønnekleiv (violin) and Ole-Henrik Moe (viola). In 2011, Rønnekleiv/Moe released the album A Summer's Night At the Crooked Forest on SOFA. Wire magazine wrote that the album is a technical tour de force -- and a musical one, too, each track structured with composerly precision. On this sequel, we meet an extraordinary duo with an almost telepathic interplay. Recorded in the middle of the forest in a cabin with no electricity (the recording equipment was run on solar energy(!!). With titles such as "You Are Walking On a Sleeping Summer," "Peismusikk" (Norwegian for "fire place music") and "Blizzard," one can maybe imagine under what circumstances this session took place.
