Daniel Älgå: Saxophones (Tenor, Soprano and Midisaxophone), Nord Modular, NoiceSwash and Laptop, Pontus Torstensson: Drums, Cymbals, Percussion, Voice and Line6 DL4. "Viirus is the collaboration between Daniel Älgå and Pontus Torstensson. They met in 2001 and for a couple of years while living together in the city of Arvika in Sweden they developed the music later to be unleashed as Viirus in 2004. This, their debut album on Klanggold is recorded live in studio on three different locations in two different cities (Stockholm and Arvika) over the last three years. Their intention of this music is to combine the electronics with the acoustics into a homogenic and continuously evolving soundscape. The Clavia Nord Modular (Daniel's sound companion over the last six years) stands as sound foundation for Pontus' vivid acoustic drums/cymbals/percussion-kit processed through the Line6 DL-4 (which Pontus is using extensively) and Daniel's sometimes chaotic sometimes melodic saxophone shoutouts. Laptop and homemade electronics extends the Viirus circuit both in studio and in live situations." (label info)
