This time around, the ensemble members share the arranging credits between them, making the music still more organic and flexible as new sound combinations emerge.

About Christian Wallumrød Ensemble:

Christian Wallumrød (1971) 
- acoustic and electronic keyboards / composer

Christian Wallumrød has worked as a musician and composer since 1992, and he is considered one of the most prominent musicians of the younger Norwegian generation.
