Splint! gathers some of the finest musicians from the Scandinavian improvised music scene. Band founder Johannes Lundberg's vision before putting the group together in 2004 was to form a unit with perfect match both on an artistic and a personal level: good friends have all chances in the world to make good music. And have a lot of fun on the way too.
A recording session took place in Lundberg's red cottage on the Swedish countryside outside Ulricehamn. A few intense days of playing, eating, drinking and discussing the meaning of life resulted in many hours of improvised music on hard disk. The post-production was a matter of carefully selecting which parts to use and scale them down to a format that would fit on a CD.
