Norwegian bass player Jo Berger Myhre (Nils Petter Molvær, Splashgirl, Susanna, Mariam the Believer) and Icelandic drummer/keyboarist Ólafur Björn Ólafsson (Sigur Rós, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Skúli Sverrisson) teams up for time-stopping instrumental music. Their first album titled «The Third Script» was released on Hubro in June 2017. Silently, it found it´s way to the hearts of critics, audiences and musical peers alike, resulting in wonderful reviews, an invitation to Nordur and Nidur festival curated by Sigur Rós, worldwide radio airplay and a nomination for the Norwegian Grammy Award.
Music that is truly open where associations have room to grow and deepen. So it is with the thrillingly vivid and allusive contents featured in the wildly inventive ambient-gothic improvisations of ‘The Third Script’, the album collaboration by Jo Berger Myhre & Ólafur Björn Ólafsson, released on Hubro earlier this year. Their music is typically so sparsely populated, and its sense of space and scale so immense, that it’s as if one is being deliberately invited to fill in the gaps to provide both detail and motive. With drums, double bass and a Farfisa organ, they create a strikingly original sound-world that doesn’t really remind of anyone else.
