Seglem's sound is light, transparent, dreamy but still full of depth and transcendence. His introverted playing incorporates the musical textures of traditional Norwegian music as well as jazz. Karl Seglem grows up with both structures; through him both grow together into something completely new... He works, here with Reidar Skår, very consciously with the most sophisticated modern studio technology, breathing new life into days gone past and creating organic contact to the matrix of contemporary sound. Karl Seglem finds the most musically sensitive complement for the Reik project in fellow musicians Nikolai Ivanov (tambura, guitars) and Harald Skullerud (drums, percussion). 'Reik' - Karl Seglem's landscape of sound as the ambivalence of future and past. Digipak.
