Katariin Raska and Christian Meaas Svendsen have known each other for many years. They met in Oslo in 2012 and soon started working together in Katariin’s band ÄIO. Their duo music is an abstract reminiscent of that music: folkish, primal, experimental, organic and timeless.

The debut album, Finding ourselves in all things, features two lengthy tracks, standing in stark contrast to each other, both being extensive elaboration on simple ideas. Sonic layers unfold and overlap in long arches. The recording is representative for the duo’s way of thinking about form and musical storytelling through an extended use of their instruments’ possibilities. The vertical is always present in the horizontal and vice versa.
