Murmur consists of four of the most active improvising musicians from Norway. The quartet moves quickly between textural and percussive material, an agility that creates unpredictable and often entertaining improvised music. The energy can maybe be traced back to free jazz, but the music of Murmur is definitely one of today. The rich sound-palette gives them many possibilities, which they can navigate through with an effortless flow. Murmur plays either minimalism or maximalist, but moves organically and playfully between the opposites.
Klaus Ellerhusen Holm (saxophone & clarinet) Holm is from Oslo. He has released several cd’s in Norway. All of them well received among journalists and audience. His most recent project is the duo Ballrogg with bass player Roger Arntzen (In the Country).
