New release by Formo Tre & Metall

The new record “Amor & Labor” by Formo Tre & Metall is now available as CD and download!
The recording was listed on Europe Jazz Media Chart for october, and a nice early review in Bergens Tidende describes the music as a “vital and engaging drive of improvisation” by a “strong and original band”
Some more nice reviews: “Formo Tre & Metall is an excellent quartet with a bold vision.”
Adresseavisen: “He plays the B3 with a scope and a melodic sensitivity that makes it a joy to listen to”
Dagsavisen: “Det er ei sprudlande oppkome av eit album” “Formo has created a band and a sound unlike anything else on the musical horizon”
Dag og Tid: “Det er noko stoffleg og handgripeleg i musikken som er både uvanleg og tankevekkjande”

Triple album released

My new triple album “Hammond Dialogues” is now available for download at and iTunes, also available as limited edition triple-CD for mail order by contacting me directly.
Some reviews are also starting to show up:
Bergens Tidende: “This is electroacoustic contemporary improvisation rich in ideas”;
Svenska Dagbladet: “in the dynamic duo (…) they make the sounds both sparkle and shine mightily” “The quartet becomes (…) a free improvised unit of the best kind, formulating captivating, rich language and almost telepathic interplay” “Hammond B3 is a greater benefit to mankind than were penicillin, air conditioning and microwave. Daniel confirms this with absolute distinction”

triple album release and new quartet debut tour coming up

In february 2013 I will tour in Norway and Sweden with my new quartet called Formo Tre&Metall featuring Mattias Ståhl on vibraphone, Eirik Hegdal on saxophone and Erik Nylander on drums and wood chops. At the same time I will release a triple album based on my work with the Hammond Dialogues project, containing a solo Hammond recording, a live duo recording with Nils Henrik Asheim on church organ, and another live recording featuring Lene Grenager on cello, Michael Duch on double bass and Bergmund Skaslien on viola.
