I am having a truly fantastic week at Håvard Lund´s remarkable island retreat outside of Bodø, Norway. Time to think, space to create. Peace and quiet just to be. Inspired by the natural surroundings of Fleinvær, I have recorded some solo double bass improvisations during my stay - combining them with my own photos from the island to make small videos. One of them is embedded here, check out this Vimeo album for more: https://vimeo.com/album/4801857
