About

 

 

 

kÖök is the invention of guitarists Jørn Erik Ahlsen and Stian Larsen and comes out of the improvisational scene in Oslo. They released their first self titled record in 2012 on FMR records and Kjøkkenmusikk. They later released the live album "Live in Leipzig" (2013) before their highly praised second studio album "Imber, Whiltshire" in 2014.

 

The duo plays free improvised music and navigates the landscape between electronic ambient and experimental jazz, where both Marc Ducret and Alva Noto can be heard as inspirations. Their minimalistic sound is developed through extensive use of analogue effects, loops and prepared guitars.
