The way the three musicians interact is a musical alloy in which focus on detail creates magnificence. Frost offers the austerity of a winter landscape, the rippling snowmelt, and a warming fire. Frost is not for background noise, it is music that demands to be experienced in peace and quiet. Listened to with concentration, Mats Edén’s brilliant fiddle melodies, Jonas Simonsson’s drifting flute music and Terje Isungset’s innovative percussion form a sound installation in which one can delightfully lose all sense of space and time.

Den vårvinterstungna fjällvinden biter hårt i kinden.
bettet lindras något om man lägger sig på magen, ner i enrisets värmekudde. fjällbäckarnas olika grundtoner rinner stilla samman till ett svagt ackord.
lugnt dricker fågeln bäckens vatten.
i dess öga speglas säljflötens rop,
mungigans stampande och fiolens sträva sång.



The mountain wind heavy with Late Winter nips hard at the cheeks
The bite is somewhat softer if one lays face down in the warm pillow of the junipers
The mountain streams ́ different keynotes flow smoothly together into a faint chord
Leisurely a bird drinks from the stream
In its ́ eye is mirrowed the call of the willow-flute, the stamp of the jew ́s harp and the course song of the violin.
