Footloose

 

FOOTLOOSE

Started in 2002 and consists of guitarist Mats Holtne, bassist Mattias Hjorth and drummer Peter Nilsson.

 

Footloose focuses on collective improvisations, music that rewards an open mind and a curious attitude. The group's expressions and sounds are original and innovative, and there is a wide dynamic range in spite of the small format. The journey starts with meditative "soundscapes" via melodic interplay to condensed sound eruptions, never without serenity and reflection, a music that lives and breathes.

Footloose collaborated with danish saxophone player Lotte Anker at the KOPAfestival in 2006 (KOPACD 015) and with italian saxophone player Claudio Fasoli at the KOPAfestival 2008.
