Bridget Marsden & Leif Ottosson – Sea of Trees
From the album Sea of Trees, released on Playing With Music.
Following their critically acclaimed debut album Mountain Meeting, Bridget Marsden & Leif Ottosson are back with their second album, Sea of Trees, in which every piece has received its own distinct imagery.
The album offers a selection of original compositions and traditional material that together form a minimalist folk music sound with tight tune playing and atmospheric improvisation at its core.
Sea of Trees also features guest appearances from Maher Cissoko (kora), Petter Berndalen (Percussion), Sarah-Jane Summers (violin), Juhani Silvola (guitar), and Sofia Berg-Böhm (song), contributing to unexpected excursions in the musical conversation and a great dynamic span.
Sea of Trees is an album for all listeners to whom stripped-down and experimental instrumental music appeals.
Bridget Marsden – violin
Leif Ottosson – accordion
“Whilst their debut album Mountain Meeting was already a huge success, with Sea of Trees Bridget Marsden (violin) and Leif Ottosson (accordion) definitely surpass themselves… Their playing is completely focused in the moment, and they create a sound that is intense and convincing. Each and every note has meaning.“
