Whirl is a trio that features the legendary English reedist Tobias Delius (ICP orchestra) alongside the two young and active Norwegian improvisers Adrian Fiskum Myhr (Bergljot, Facet) and Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø (Skadedyr, Lana trio). The three of them met for their first concert in Berlin 2012, and quickly realized that this was more than just another ad hoc meeting. Since then they have toured Hungary, Slovenia, Austria and Norway and developed their strong musical connection.
Whirl plays expressive improvised music where explosive free jazz aesthetics are mixed with micro tonal timbral investigations in a fearless way. By omitting the drums from the “traditional” free jazz quartet set up, the trio get’s a fresh starting point, allowing for extremely dynamic improvised chamber music.
