Peter Söderberg - String Dialogues [Thanatosis Produktion 025]

Put out on the circuit by the highly valued Swedish imprint Thanatosis Produktion on May 26th, 2k23 is "String Dialogues", the latest conceptual album work conceived and thought up by long standing composer x sound researcher Peter Söderberg who presents a set of six duo performances on this one, playing alongside renowned artists like Vilhelm Bromander, Stina Hellberg Agback, Mats Persson and others. Focusing on his specific ideas and theories on instrumental tuning, especially of the uncommon / unconventional kind, the 64 minutes spanning album opens from an almost folksy, yet tonally off-kilter angle despite providing the attempt to follow through on harmonic conventions whereas "Symbiosis" for harp and theorbo drifts off into a minimalist dreamstate, an intimate late night conversation between two instruments. Furthermore "Continuum" gives off a twisted, contemplative, yet somewhat comforting and OffJazz -x Dark Jazz-informed vibe and the concluding cut that is "Sustain" brings forth mythical, almost archaic drones alongside eerie, fever'ish tones and therefore introduces a new vibe and angle to the sound of Söderberg's "String Dialogues". Deep Listening Music for those who know.
