about

Ambidextrous Sun is the debut album of an eclectic duo consisting of the danish guitarist Erik Emil Eskildsen (The Friendly Guitar Trio) and the german synth player Bernhard Wöstheinrich (centrozoon).

All pieces on this album are based on completely free improvisations, conceived, performed, and recorded to two separate stereo tracks. The melodies, rhythms, form and structure were all extracted from these improvisations, and "orchestrated" with additional instruments, or as the artists like to call it "lolchestrated". The initial improvisations remain as a backbone within each piece.

During the process, friends of both Bernhard and Erik were asking what they were up to, what was that new music they were working on? And as Bernhard and Erik were aware that their music was new and different, they decided to come up with a reply that was equally unique, and so the term "loljazz" was coined.
