A heavenly record projects marks the 20-year collaboration between the contemporary classical trio Alpaca Ensemble and jazz saxophonist and composer Eirik Hegdal. «The Sky Opens Twice» is a pop, experimental, contemporary.. Ah forget it. Just listen! And heads up (and ears tuned in) for singer and lyricist Thea Ellingsen Grant!
Eirik Hegdal and Alpaca Ensemble have several collaborative projects behind them, including “Tapet Tapet!” which got several top score reviews, and «Mekatonia» from 2012 (record from 2017) – a most impressive co-production with Cirka Teater during the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival.
“The Sky Open Twice” is the ensemble’s eleventh album and is a commissioned work by Eirik Hegdal. Hegdal invited the young and creative vocalist Thea Ellingsen Grant to the project. (Among other things known from the band JUNO.) Grant has written colourful and vivid lyrics to the music.
The album is a playful creation of pre-produced pop-beats / backing tracks, free improvisation, contemporary music and jazz.
