Pip play improvised and semi-composed pieces of music, with Fredrik Rasten on guitar and Torstein Lavik Larsen on trumpet. The music is focusing on such elements as small variations in tonal and timbral colour often utilizing just intonation, extended playing techniques and repeating musical patterns. Sometimes the music includes electronic elements, never abandoning the core sound of acoustic guitar and trumpet as a point of departure.
The duo has existed since 2006, and has since then explored many different approaches to improvised music. Pip released their first official release on Portuguese label “Creative Sources” in 2016.
Axel Dörner has been central in redefining the sound of the trumpet by extending it´s range of sound through expansive investigation of it´s potential. He has been collaborating with many of the prominent improvisers in Europe, and is known for projects like “The Contest of Pleasures” and “Monk´s Casino”, as well as long-lasting relationships with players like Sven Åke Johansson, Rudi Mahall and Alexander Schlippenbach are worth distinguishing.
Andreas Røysum is a young norwegian clarinetist, who in addition to touring with his bands “Miman”, “Målbrott” and “Increase” has spent the last years playing with people like Kresten Osgood, Jasper Stadhouders, Damo Suzuk, Rhys Chatham and Frode Gjerstad. Even though there´s a couple of generations between the two, they meet through a shared understanding of form and technique.
