Ole Teigen is a multi-instrumentalist and composer from Norway releasing his debut solo album Aske & Jor in a strange realm of minor jazz and neo classical, on Apollon Records 2 June. Ole Teigen has for many years been working with bands like Superlynx, Dødheimsgard, Skitliv, Den Saakaldte etc. The track Magician In Despair,
Magician In Despair is an ironic comment to what feels like a repeating betrayal from people who fall out or even kill themselves, collaborators and musicians who don’t keep their promises and cowardly politicians who don’t deal with the mental disease that kill so many of us etc. It is hard to be a god in a world full of people! Featured on this track is Christian Håpnes Svendsen (Beaten To Death etc) on drums, Frode Berg (Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra etc) on bass, Anita Antal on flute and Ole Teigen (Superlynx) on piano.
