vocals, live sampling, percussion and melodica

OPEN is Eldbjørg Raknes SOLO : her voice, live sampling, percussion and melodica.

The music is inspired by various genres; genre-OPEN!

In the process of making OPEN Eldbjørg has been in rooms with another musician with a unique presence – honest, open ears and a fearless attitude: Audun Kleive. He has recorded and co-produced OPEN. The recording was done in his apartment in Skotfoss in Telemark February 2013, and mixed in his apartment in Weimar, Germany May 2013.

The stunning cover art from one of the world 's clearest voices in the field of visual arts: A K Dolven, is a response to the music on OPEN.

" Eldbjørg Raknes is undoubtedly one of the most exciting improvising musicians in the kingdom ... " Nettavisen
" Raknes is constantly pushing the musical envelope with each new work..." All about jazz
