Jo Berger Myhre & Ólafur Björn Ólafsson - The Third Script [Hubro Music Promo]

Scheduled for release on June 16th, 2k17 via the Hubro Music-imprint is "The Third Script", a collaborational album effort crafted by the Norwegian artist Jo Berger Myhre and the Iceland-based Ólafur Björn Ólafsson, presenting a body of work consisting of the dark and quite intimidating, composed opening tune "1000%" which we already featured on these pages in mid-May and three improvisations that have been slightly overdubbed after the recording process. The first of these improvised musical works is the title track "The Third Script", stretching out over 14+ minutes to serve a feel of pure, naturalistic ambience and tender, mountain-induced melancholia followed by "Orifice" combining ritualistic, mesmerizing drum patterns with droning atmospheres and low freq double bass story telling to add another layer of spine-tingling musical mystery before the final cut named "Ravening" with its name actually being inspired by a flock of ravens starts out on a tip closer to medieval Folk than all of the other tunes on this album but works its way in a different direction from there on towards a lively, ever cumulating climax of unsettling string works, psychedelic distortions meandering and contrapuntal crystalline, sparkling keyboard tones - a combination surely growing in terms of fascination when experienced on infinite repeat.
