Biography of Food

Since their first concert at Molde in 1998 this groundbreaking group has toured and recorded internationally creating thought provoking improvised and textural music of great depth and beauty.

Originally a quartet including trumpeter Arve Henriksen and bassist Mats Eilertsen, Food has now reduced to its core and founder members Ballamy and Strønen whose concept is to invite like-minded musicians to join them and engage with their contemporary and forward thinking approach to creating music, using sound space texture and contrast to create ever-changing moods and environments for true improvisation.

By combining acoustic elements including bells, blocks, gongs and lyrical saxophone, the music is enhanced and tempered with live sampling and drums creating moods which range from minimalist to very turbulent.

Food has released eight albums including 'This Is Not A Miracle' 2015, 'Mercurial Balm' 2012 and 'Quiet Inlet' 2010 for the ECM label.

Previous guests invited to play with Food have included Jan Bang, the pioneering trumpeters Arve Henriksen, Nils Petter Molvær and Tom Arthurs, Japanese theremin/vocalist Koichi Makigami, keyboard player Morten Qvenild, the esteemed Austrian guitarist / electronica master Christian Fennesz and Indian sitar/vocalist Prakash Sontakke.

Food has performed at numerous festivals and venues. Commissioned pieces include the chamber work “Gold Acre” for the BBC radio 3 featuring Arve Henriksen as soloist with the London Sinfonietta, which premiered at Kings Place, London.
