Seán Mac Erlaine - Album Launch
New album launch from leading Irish musician Seán Mac Erlaine (clarinets, electronics) with Norwegian trailblazers Eivind Aarset (guitars) and live sampling pioneer Jan Bang.
April 2018 sees the release of Seán Mac Erlaine's third album on the Ergodos label. Following the critical acclaim of his first two solo records Seán is working with two of the leading lights in contemporary music, broadening his soundworld and embracing a collaborative approach. Norwegian musicians Eivind Aarset on guitars and effects, and live sampling pioneer Jan Bang bring an expansive, detailed palette to this work recorded in Oslo, which also features the stunning vocals of Irish singer Sadhbh Ní Dhalaigh. It is an album that shifts constantly between dark, brooding electronics and light-filled moments, playing with this balance. Mac Erlaine's individual voice on woodwinds combines seamlessly with his nuanced understanding of live electronics and meets the signature Norwegian soundworld of Bang and Aarset.
