Nils Petter Molvær is one of the most prominent performers within an electroacoustic, improvised/composed musical hybrid that has become a genre of it's own, and where he is both a pioneer and a veteran. On Stitches, Molvær collaborates with drummer Erland Dahlen, bassist Jo Berger Myhre, and guitarist Johan Lindstrom. The recording process started at Ocean Sound Recordings on the island of Giske, but then the pandemic forced the musicians to exchange further ideas over the Internet, until the album was sewn together and mixed by Molvær and Jon Marius Aareskjold at Kysten Studio in Tromso. The musicians were given full artistic freedom, so the album is very much about trusting other people, and giving room to let people shine. The result is breathtaking. From the poetic, tender "Median" via the dramatic "A Sudden Rash", to the three powerful pieces taken from "Frameworks", Molvær's commissioned work for the 2021 Kongsberg Jazz Festival, the album showcases the trumpeter's distinct musical language - a language that is appreciated by listeners all over the world.
