Tomas J?rmyr: Drums | Kristoffer Lo: Amplified Tuba, Flugabone | Dirk Serries: Electric Guitar. When putting three fine exponents of modern, forward-thinking and experimental music in the same room, the hope is that something a little special is going to be the result. Yodok III are exactly that - primarily a study in ambient drone, but including elements of genres as diverse as jazz, rock and even classical can be heard playing their part in this mind-bending tapestry. Yodok III excels as a live band. The strong reputation they have is thanks to the sophisticated structure of their long live epics, the intense dynamics and homogenous group sounds they know to create on stage. It is not a surprise that "A Dreamer Ascends" is only their 3rd album in 7 years. This album was recorded in 2017, in the Ora Studio in Trondheim, Norway. But to distil an album made up of 3 hours of music is not an easy task. "A Dreamer Ascends" is a super tightly clenched album in which their YODOK III's organic sounds plays a central role. The album is not exactly a long sophisticated composition of their live concerts, but as a listener you receive an album that blossoms, with a raw edge, but full off intensity, grainy sound layers and a pulsing rhythm. "An exceptional, invigorating listening experience, suggesting a new means of creating free improv." - All About Jazz. For fans of: Dirk Serries, Ulver, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, MNHM, The Use of Ashes.
