Christian Wallumrød is considered to be one of Norway's most prominent musicians and composers on the contemporary music scene, and the Christian Wallumrød Ensemble (CWE) is one of his main projects. Wallumrød's long-standing collaboration with producer Manfred Eicher has resulted in 5 albums with CWE on ECM Records. The ensemble has also released the records Kurzsam and Fulger (2016) and Many (2020) on Hubro Music. All albums have been met with great enthusiasm among critics and audiences around the world, and several of them have also ended up on various best-of-the-year lists in national and international media. Together with the ensemble, Wallumrød has developed his idiosyncratic chamber music over a 20-year period, and with various line-ups.

Since her first song album FM Biography, both jazz and pop audiences have been deeply impressed by Johanna Borchert. German public radio station BR5 declared the record a "masterpiece of quiet tones" and the Süddeutsche Zeitung heard "a new cosmos of sound full of harmoniously balanced contrasts". Many journalists drew comparisons to Laurie Anderson and Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos and Björk as well as to the later work of Kate Bush. Now the multi-award-winning song poet, singer and pianist has released the powerful new album Amniotic, which again positions itself between genres. At the center of the songs and improvisations is her refined playing on the grand piano, rooted in jazz and classical music, with her dynamic, charismatic voice.The songs of Amniotic are intense, sonically revolving around the theme of the development of life before, during and immediately after birth.

On stage:
Johanna Borchert - piano and vocals
Simon Toldam - keyboards
Peter Bruun - drums
