On in this botanical adventure – or "Adventura Botanica" – SPUNK join forces with one of Norway’s leading modern dance exponents, Odd Johan Fritzøe, to create a sound and movement work celebrating Darwin’s legendary, game-changing voyage to Madagascar. Premiered in 2013 at Oslo’s trailblazing Ultima Festival of Contemporary Music, "Adventura Botanica" was the third collaboration between SPUNK and leading choreographer/dancer Odd Johan Fritzøe. SPUNK recorded the music on this album in a studio setting around the same time, as a document of the project, but its lush and ever mutating jungle of sounds give a vivid sense of dynamic movement and fertile imaginations as the four musicians extend their sonic probosces into the rich receptacle of the dance amphitheatre.
Formed in 1995, SPUNK comprises four of Norway’s most innovative musicians: Maja S K Ratkje, Hild Sofie Tafjord, Lene Grenager and Kristin Andersen. The quartet combine talents that range from vocal experiments, instrumental virtuosity, impulsive improvisation and a witty sense of play. Here, they engage in vertigo-inducing microtonal slides and exotic, tropical textures, while fans of Ratkje’s incredible solo vocal works will find plenty to enjoy in her whistling, muttering, or operatic singing.
