NEWS & UPDATES

December 12 2022, the audiovisual collective Mugetuft (Peter Knudsen, Henrik Hellstenius, Jakop Janssønn and I) will take part in the celebration of the painter Edvard Munch's birthday at the artist's studio at Ekely in Oslo. Our contribution will be inspired by a collection of Munch's own amateur films, that he started making in the 1920s.



November 2022: Temporal Angles is the fifth in a series of solo guitar albums that started with the release of There's No Such Thing As My Fretless Guitar in 2004. In an attempt to sum up my different expeditions into the world of music, the best I can do is this "explores the esoteric expressionism of jazz and beyond». Herman Østby, a reviewer at the Norwegian student magazine Under Dusken, made this attempt to capture my eclectic improvising style in words with this characterisation in 2022: «Sunday's in Love is Amour shooting guitar picks off 6-string lovemaking towards mind-boggling contemporary composers and jazz composers.» Access the album at https://tellefogrim.bandcamp.com/ December 12 2022:
