The Thing is another long-running (since 2000), Scandinavian collaboration. This trio between myself and colleagues Mats Gustafsson and Paal Nilssen-Love, deals with improvisation in its most open form. The Thing utilizes everything from atmospheric improvisation via jazz classics to garage rock standards as a starting point for our music.
