It's Norways pioneering gamelan flautist Patrick Shaw Iversen in a delightful partnership with Raymond Pellicer, with Dj Strangefruit in the mix all come together under the project name On/Off.
Fresh out of Oslos much-talked about Grüneløkka scene where jazz and electronics meet in sweet harmony On/Off are a perfect example of the Jazzland manifest taking purist ECM jazz traditions on a timely ride in to the future, one foot in the alternative dancefloor the other in the stratosphere. Patrick, well-travelled flautist, much in demand with the key players in the Norwegian Jazz scene he has played world-wide with the likes of Bugge Wesseltoft, Sidsel Endresen, Audun Kleive, and Nils Petter Molvær. His unique Javanese and Balinese gamelan influence a perfect balance to partner Raymonds electronics. Raymond, aka Dj Darknorse, Phono etc is perhaps best known for his involvement as a major force in the Nils Petter Molvær Khmer touring world-wide at leading jazz festivals and happenings, bringing his minimlistic tech-trickery to Nils Petter´s recordings and massive live experience. It would only be a matter of time before the two would hook up, aided and abetted by Dj Strangefruit, - Norways Dj eminence grise also of Nils Petter´s band.
