First release is “First Blow”, a live recording from Molde Jazzfestival 2013; both on vinyl 12” EP and CD that are both sold out (!). Second out is a 4-LP box set and 3-CD box with material recorded during a tour of Norway in January/February 2014, which will be released in October 2014. Summer of 2014 saw the band busy at Moers Festival, Kongsberg Jazzfestival and the Blow Out festival in Oslo. Reviews from Moers claimed PNL Large Unit as one of the highlights of the festival.

The music is composed by Nilssen-Love but is open enough for the players to focus on interaction, free improvisation, sound, dynamics and energy. The band is stripped down to single players, duoes etc and at times split into several groups. The power of the whole groups is of course a treat in itself when in full blast. Traces of Nilssen-Love´s experience from groups like Peter Brötzmann Chicago tentet, Ken Vandermark´s Territory band and Frode Gjerstad´s Circulasione Totale Orchestra are of course evident. There is no doubt that Nilssen-Love has taken inspiration from his years in these bands but still with the aim to create a new group with a sound of it´s own.

News from Made To Break!

Audiographic Records was organized in May of 2014 to chronicle specific aspects of Ken Vandermark's creative work not available through other outlets.

Audiographic: Systems vs. Artifacts was created in July of 2016 as a way to release various experimental, live, and one-off projects, to present a more direct record of Vandermark's creative process. All materials on this imprint will be made available as digital downloads, with the option to self-print artwork and information. AGR: SvA is designed by Fede Peñalva.

The initial set of albums on the AGR: SvA imprint are three records of material by the ensemble, Made To Break (with Tim Daisy: drums, Jasper Stadhouders: electric bass, Christof Kurzmann: laptop/ppooll, Ken Vandermark: composer/reeds), recorded on their tour in Europe during November of 2014, and mixed and mastered by Christoph Amann of Amann Studios in Vienna.

The first document, recorded in Poznan, Poland, was recorded directly before the group went into Amann Studios to create the album, "Before The Code," for Trost; it pointed to the sequence of compositions that would be utilized for that session, and indicates a radically alternate realization of the music, illustrating how even a specific order in Made To Break's material can lead to entirely new interpretations by the band. AGR: SvA 002, "Dispatch To The Sea," was recorded in Antwerp later on the tour and incorporates pieces from the group's earlier album on Trost, "Cherchez La Femme," with the newer compositions. The third Made To Break album to be released in this series, "N N N," is from the concert recorded directly after the Amann sessions in Vienna, and features music written for both Trost records in entirely different combinations than those explored in Antwerp. This collection of material is perhaps the best illustration of the working methods of Made To Break yet available.

Audiographic: Systems vs. Artifacts can be found and purchased through: audiographicrecords1.bandcamp.com

Overseas V is coming!

Eivind Opsvik Overseas European Record Release Tour – March 2017

Eivind Opsvik will tour Europe again in celebration of the long awaited return of Overseas on record; Overseas V will be out in early 2017; A mysteriously danceable album inspired by Norwegian Ferries and New Wave.

Eivind Opsvik and his band, Tony Malaby, Kenny Wollesen, Brandon Seabrook and Jacob Sacks, will release the fifth installment of the Overseas series in early 2017. In the over fourteen years the band has existed they have developed an amazing connection and an elastic approach to time, pitch, and harmony, it's like one big breathing organism. They've managed to stay fresh and reshape their sound and approach and for every new record they enter a new stage in their evolution. Overseas III was a very ambient and almost minimalist experience, Overseas IV featured the harpsichord and inspiration came from eighteenth century European history. Overseas V focuses on great sounding beats, direct and to the point compositions,..... and Ferries..

Lean Left: new studio recording and back on the road in 2017

Back on the road in 2017, from March 29 to April 2!

Lean Left throws together two explosive duos - the sax/drums collision course of Ken Vandermark and Paal Nilsson-Love with the piledriving guitarists from The Ex - to make up a positively apocalyptic quartet: an elemental musical force featuring Grade A international players zoning in and scrambling together rock, jazz, noise and blistering free improv into a highly-charged onstage assault, each member taking their sounds and bodies to the edge and often snapping out of the wilds and into glorious passages of regular rhythm.
