Description

Kimmo Pohjonen and Samuli Kosminen (from Finnish duo Kluster) and Pat Mastelotto and Trey Gunn (from King Crimson and duo TU) join forces for the double duo formation KTU (pronounced K2). Seeds for KTU took root at SXSW in Austin Texas in March 1999 when Pohjonen shared a billing with Mastelotto/Gunn/Fripp's Project Three at the Electric Lounge. Plans for the quartet took shape over the next five years. KTUs aim is to combine the creative energies, edge, imagination and other elements of the double duos to make something new, different and musically explosive. Material is mainly comprised of compositions by Pohjonen and Kosminen, plus pieces by Gunn and Mastelotto and arrangements and improvisations by all four. Surround sound design and additional effects by Heikki Iso-Ahola. KTU rehearsals and the World Premiere concert took place in Helsinki at the venue Nosturi in April 2004, followed by four concerts in Tokyo at Eggman. All concerts were recorded on multi-track for this CD release. Kimmo Pohjonen (accordion, voice) / Samuli Kosminen (accordion samples and voice samples) / Trey Gunn (Warr guitar) / Pat Mastelotto (rhythmic devices).
