Improvisation, truth, jazz, joy and doubt. These are some of the elements that exists in the universe of Filosofer. An unorthodox string quartet consisting of two violins and two basses combined with Bendik baksaas handling computers, turntables, synthesizers and samplers. All this collides in an improvisational play which holds tender emotions and surreal musical narration. In what way are five jazz musicians the same as a string quartet and a DJ? Filosofer put their heads together and contemplate the riddle, through the mercy of the moment.
