SIRIL MALMEDAL HAUGE
Siril Malmedal Hauge's solo project. The music is inspired by genres like folk, pop and jazz, all melted together in a world of captivating melodies, steady riffs, honest texts and piquant arrangements.
Siril: "To make the music sound just like I wanted, "Uncharted Territory" is written especially for these musicians. I've played with all of them in other projects before, so I knew their voices very well, and as a band we know each other's strengths. I've learned to play mandolin while in the process of making this album. This lead the songs into different territories. I’ve had a clear thought about what I want it to be, but at the same time, I’ve been open to the musical direction and where it could lead in the process. I've added strings from the multidisciplinary string ensemble, Oslo Strings, to have a greater variety of possibilities in the sound, sometimes showing the fragility of the songs, but also creating the fullness needed whenever needed. I have Kaja Fjellberg Pettersen - cello, Isa Caroline Holmesland - viola, and jazz violinist Adrian Løseth Waade, a fantastic improviser, who adds some thrilling lines to it all."
