Biographie Karl Seglem


Karl Seglem
is described as one of the most exciting contemporary tenor saxophonists and composers in Norway. He has consistently extended musical frontiers with his original perspectives and daring improvisational style. He combines Norway's rich folk music traditions, both the vocal traditions and specially the Hardanger fiddle music, with his own mode of expression. Seglem creates modern soundscapes, a mix between jazz, folk, world, where improvisation and composition are given equal weight.

His saxophone tone blazes a fresh trail through his innovative use of breath, resonance and syncopation. Seglem also plays the Norwegian goat horns. His many CD recordings with different ensembles such as UTLA, SOGN-A-SONG and ISGLEM ranges across the entire spectrum from rooted folk to free form, and is inspired by deep Norwegian roots, via world beats to the poetic and dramatic Nordic landscape.He has composed and performed several works/pieces and has produced a number of CDs for mainly Norwegian, but also some Swedish artists.
