Dissonant Distance is a newly formed international power trio consisting of three musicians. Oscar Hansson on bass guitar and live looping, Andras Saylik on drums and percussion and Jay Matharu on guitars. They recently have released their self-titled debut. Dissonant Distance is a journey through instrumental improvisation. Pumping bass grooves, ambient loops, fiery guitars, intricate rhythms and tonalities. Fusing elements of progressive rock, metal, blues, jazz and Indian music with a free and spontaneous energy.
The album was conceived over two days when the band entered Hang-Ar studio in Budapest to develop and improvise on musical ideas that Oscar Hansson presented. The next day the band turned up to the studio and met with engineer Mate Kapitany and recorded the ten-track album live. The album was later mixed and mastered by Oscar Hansson at the Third Floor Studio, Budapest.
The final outcome was as unexpected as it was refreshing, but the underlying concept was to create music that would invoke a variety of emotions from the listener. The musicians let the music take on its own entity, which has resulted in an album of dissonant and lamenting melodies juxtaposed with a playful punk attitude.
