Following up on Kasper Agnas’ critically acclaimed 2021 solo album “Grain” (published by Swedish imprint Haphazard Music), FRIM Records proudly presents “Grain Live”. It’s a stunning, three track set comprised of live versions of semi-open compositions that were also featured on the guitarists’ previous solo record. On this album, the pieces have been reimagined and are virtuously performed in a way that’s fully embracing the music’s minimalist and vertiginous yet meditative qualities.
FRIM (The Association for Free Improvised Music) is a musician-driven association that was founded in 1976 to create a platform for free
improvised music in Sweden and to promote the ongoing discussion about improvised music as an artform. These days FRIM arranges concerts and festivals of improvised music in Stockholm. Since 2017, FRIM is running a monthly concert series at Fylkingen and organizes concerts and festivals at various venues in town. In 2021, a pod – FRIM-Podden – was launched; as well as a record label: FRIM Records.
