Eirik Hegdal on the project:

The Ensemble on this record consists of musicians I have been working with in many different collaborations, and whom I know very well. Creative thinking musicians with a strong personal sound. This is the framework which the whole piece is built on, and which binds it all together.

The piece has 24 movements, long and short ones, composed and improvised. The goal is to underline the playfulness of the ensemble. The compositions are often frameworks for collective improvisations, often in layers. Structures that gives friction and harmony. Other compositions are more accurate. Overall I have wanted to create an album which is based on tension and release. Abstract and concrete. Collective improvisations and transparent solos. There are parallels with the recording ”We are?” with a similar set-up. On ”Wood & Water” there is a clear relationship to contemporary and improvised music. Visually speaking, I want to present the music as moving scenery flats. This, because I want to give a profoundness to the music, which can add something new to the listener and myself as a musician and composer.
