Eikrem & Baksaas

The duo originates from the collaboration between Mopti & Bendik Baksaas. They play their own musical style that borders between improvisation, composition and production, where the intention is to explore soundscapes with a free trumpet, playful synths and field recordings as the pillars. The absence of drum sounds and stable pulse allows for subtle flirtation with rhythm and time. The intensive approach to composition and mixing gives the music a sensitive and honest character where the improvisation and communication between the two musicians is the structural element.

Bendik Baksaas (1991) is a musician, DJ, composer and producer from Horten with backgrounds from Det Frie Kanditatstudiet at the Norwegian Academy of Music. Bendik has released several albums and has toured large parts of Norway, Europe, Japan and Africa with the projects Jervaas, Mopti and his own solo projects. Baksaas is currently working as a freelance musician / producer based in Oslo.
