Info for Mercurial Balm

Die Gruppe Food um den norwegischen Schlagzeuger Strønen und den britischen Saxophonisten Ballamy lädt immer wieder Gäste zur kreativen Mitwirkung ein. Die form- und struktur-bewussten Improvisationen hier stammen aus Live-Auftritten in Norwegen, England und Deutschland, sowie Sessions in Oslos Rainbow Studio. Zu den Letzteren gehören auch Tracks, auf denen der indische Slide-Gitarrist und Sänger Prakash Sontakke von Eivind Aarsets atmosphärischen Gitarren- und Elektronikklängen ergänzt wird. Auf der ersten Hälfte des Albums wird Food von dem österreichischen Gitarristen Christian Fennesz unterstützt, mit dem sie die Experimente mit Klangschichten weitertreiben, die auf dem Album „Quiet Inlet“ begonnen hatten. Nils Petter Molvær gesellte sich für ein Stück, das beim Mannheimer Enjoy-Jazz-Festival aufgenommen wurde, zu Strønen, Ballamy und Fennesz.
