Orter Eparg is a postmodern piano trio playing music about catapults, guitar players, couch surfing and minimalist composers.
Orter Eparg is a broken watch, a malfunctioning machine, a rusty, out of control piece of farm equipment.
Blindingly surrealist and melodically powerful, the band recounts the most unlikely, abstract stories.
The music is based on bass player Dan Peter Sundland's unique compositions, whose cross rhythms and layer based constructions encourages a solid, sound conscious interplay in different intersections between groove and free improvisation.
The trio has been active since 2008, and have so far been playing venues and festivals across Norway, including Molde Jazz Festival, Join the Circus and PØKK.
Orter Eparg's debut album will be released on Øra Fonogram fall 2016.
"[...]Depth aplenty in its arresting, unpredictable narratives."
