Egil Kalman

egil live photo malwina witkowskaEgil Kalman, currently a PhD fellow at UiA, interprets traditional folk music from Norway and Sweden on the modular synthesizer.

Paying close attention to intonation and ornamentation in the source material, these details shine in a new light with the sound of raw electricity amplifying its inherent trance inducing qualities.

His 2nd LP on iDeal Recordings ‘Forest of Tines, Egil Kalman plays the Buchla 200’ was released earlier this year.

Besides his solo work he’s also active in several groups as a double bass player and synthesist, such as Marthe Lea Band, Miman, Völvur and in duos with Zoe Efstathiou and Fredrik Rasten.
