With 'CHORDS', the Stockholm-based musician and composer Ellen Arkbro returns to Subtext, following her acclaimed debut album 'For Organ and Brass'.

* This new longplayer sees Arkbro adopt a more minimalist approach, focusing on the immediate qualities of sound and elegantly expanding the tonal capacities of acoustic instruments using precise, subtle synthesis.

* Composed of a carefully selected combination of tones, 'CHORDS' stretches, extends and obscures the timbral character of the instruments it is performed on.

* Across both tracks, Arkbro examines the sonic materiality and harmonic quality of chords.

She considers how the compositions occupy space rather than time - transposing theoretical possibilities into the phenomenal realm.
