Ola Kvernberg - Steamdome II: The Hypogean - 2 x Vinyl LP
In 2017, the Jazz and film music composer Ola Kvernberg discovered electronica and took on a whole new audience group through the release of his internationally critically acclaimed Steamdome project. Progressive jazz met electronica and it became one 2017's best-selling albums on vinyl. On Steamdome II: The Hypogean, Ola Kvernberg presents an even more souped-up crew than last time, still shamelessly mixing genres and with a newly-won desire to jolt you out of your home office and give you an hour of music therapy, free of pandemics and global disasters in general.
Ola Kvernberg broke through at the age of 17 with Hot Club de Norvege. He has worked and collaborated with Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, Jason Moran, Jimmy Carl Black, Todd Terje, Motorpsycho, Ane Brun, Arve Tellefsen, Trondheim Soloists, Trondheim Symfoniorkester, KORK, Thomas Dybdahl, Stian Carstensen, Trondheim Jazzorkester and many more. Multi-nominee and award-winning at the Norwegian Grammy Awards. A recognised film composer, he has won Amandaprisen and Kanonprisen in Norway, Guldbaggen in Sweden and a nominee at the Grand Scores in Germ
