Krympende klode is a new collaboration between two internationally recognised musicians from Bergen, Norway: music producer Jorgen Træen, who has worked with talents such as Susanne Sundfor, Thea Hjelmeland and Jazkamer, and the unique and eternally inventive guitarist Stein Urheim, whose releases include 6 albums on the HUBRO label.

On this album they present their personal collections of synthesisers and string instruments from all over the world, and let the space between the electronic and the analogue shrink to fit between the grooves of an LP.

Krympende klode invites us into an imaginative and playful electro acoustic universe. This is music that is overwhelming, moving and consistent , all at the same time.

In a rich tapestry of sound we can hear influences ranging from Raymond Scott and Delia Derbyshire to Parry Partch and the Norwegian Bjorn Fongaard , among others Krympende klode is a kaleidoscope of sound, reflecting many of the two musicians' interests.

"As a starting point we wanted to pay tribute to the pioneers of electronic music," says Urheim, "but also to combine the sounds of the modular synths with a variety of string instruments from near and far." Urheim has released six extremely personal and highly treasured albums whose musical basis is formed of guitars and string instruments from all over the world, blues, folk music, world music and a stylistically confident approach to original soundscapes.

He also provided vital musical contributions to Erlend Apneseth's critically acclaimed album Fragmentarium (2020).

Træen contributed as a musician on Oyvind Torvund's The Exotica Album (2019), which won a Norwegian Grammy, and has also played a decisive role as a producer, mixer and studio technician for a long list of releases in the label's catalogue.

HUBRO founder Andreas Meland describes him as follows: "Jorgen is simply a superb artist, who has a unique way of raising all the productions he is involved in to a higher level."
