Spin Marvel Infolding on 180g 2LP
Spin Marvel is originally the brainchild of drummer Martin France in conjunction with Norwegian sound sculptor Terje Evensen and British bassist Tim Harries. For Infolding, their third release after Spin Marvel (2006) and The Reluctantly Politicised Mr James (2010) and first for RareNoiseRecords, they're joined by celebrated Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer, and British producer/drummer Emre Ramazanoglu. Together they create spacious and dramatic soundscapes of profound intensity blending aspects of free jazz, ambient music and electronica in new and provocative ways.
Infolding began as a single day of live recording with France, Molvaer, Harries and Evensen before Ramazanoglu came onboard. "It was recorded live in a four hour session for the BBC (JazzOn3)," explains France. "Sometime after the recording I sat and listened to the takes and selected the performances to form a programme to fit the BBC R3 running time. We were all very happy with the session and how the music was sounding so I forwarded the master files to producer Emre Ramazanoglu, who then worked with the music and produced it for us."
A dynamic and inventive collaboration between potent musical forces, Infolding breaks all the rules while leading the way for new possibilities in music-making.
