Reflections in Cosmo biography
REFLECTIONS IN COSMO is a free jazz/noise rock quartet based in Oslo, Norway. The members are all reputed musicians on the Norwegian jazz rock scene, making it something of a supergroup. The band was born out of keyboard wizard Ståle STORLØKKEN (SUPERSILENT, ELEPHANT9, BOX) and drummer Thomas STRØNEN (FOOD) wanting to take their old collaboration, which stretches back to 2004, the improvisational based electro jazz outfit HUMCRUSH, into a new and more structured direction.

They recruited two old STORLØKKEN collaborators in guitarist Hans Magnus "Snah" RYAN (MOTORPSYCHO) and saxophonist extraordinaire Kjetil MØSTER (ULTRALYD), actually without STORLØKKEN knowing that RYAN was the one who had replaced him in MØSTER's own quartet, MØSTER!, a sign of how, in MØSTER's words, "small and inbred" the Norwegian jazz rock scene is.

After a month of recording back in June '15, and after playing several blistering shows since their debut at Molde International Jazz Festival that year, a couple of which this writer had the privilege of attending, they finally released their eponymous debut album on RareNoise Records in 2017, MØSTER's second on the label after his collaboration with Hungarian powerjazz trio JÜ back in 2014.

The band's music is a result of the members genre openness, stretching from improvisational music to pop, hip hop and rock. It draws lines from psychedelia and 70's prog to newer forms of improv music, with the use of modern technology also leaving its mark on the sound. The quartet appears as a collective machinery, rather than a company of soloists.

Recommended to fans of ELEPHANT9, MØSTER!, John ZORN, LAST EXIT and Elton DEAN era SOFT MACHINE.
