Excited to announce the release of my new EP - Ladies Night. It’s a collection of songs that for many years have been part of my live-show, but that never fitted the mold of my singer/songwriter albums. Some of the tracks date all the way back to 2015, when I started to crush on electronic music with beats. Apart from a few overdubs, I did everything myself; recording and mixing - which certainly attributed to the DIY home-recording feel. And since I'm still playing these songs live, it must mean I'm still in love with them and that they still spark joy - so I thought it was about time to release this as a low-key EP.

What does “dancing to music” really mean? And how do you create music for dance? In this duet, Ingrid Berger Myhre and Lasse Passage playfully examine the relationships between dance and music, using scores as tools to uphold structure over skill, method over indulgence. The title of their duet alludes to the contrast between the wet and the dry: Panflutes, on the one hand, are playful and passionate, Paperwork, on the other, refers to notation and sounds bureaucratic. The tensions between these states play well with tired conventions in the famous choreographer-composer constellation. With both tools at hand, Ingrid and Lasse invent games that re-negotiate their rule.
