After the projects Mats Gustafsson and his fellow musicians have been dreaming up in the last decade, most astoundingly with The Thing, Fire! Orchestra was the logical step forward. However, the next radical idea was to expand a massive orchestra around the core trio, which gave birth to Enter, a unique live manifestation of the interaction between players and the audiences, witnesses to a head-on clash of diverse forms, rhythms, tempos, encounters, solos… Featuring the cream of Scandinavian jazz, improvisation and avant-rock players and vocalists, the massive orchestra recalls the righteous big-band jazz of the late 60s by figures such as Charlie Haden, Sun Ra, Mike Westbrook and Chris McGregor. Ljubljana has missed Enter, but will make up for the loss by being one of the first cities to host Ritual, a new piece by Fire! and Mariam Wallentin with text by Swedes Erik Lindegren and Mats Gustafsson, “a variety of musical blocks are glued together with heavy riffs and frantic improvisations. Industrial voices, noisy brass and a line of poetic reeds attack the frictions of the wild guitars and high-energy electronics!”
