“Everything is immeasurable,” said the pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Anaximander. Did he actually predict that sometime in the future, there would be a music genre called jazz? “In Icelandic, it’s also a play on words,” says Tumi, a saxophonist who performs with various Icelandic bands. “It suggests that there is something unsaid.” The record is comprised of free improvised jazz music. Some of the songs are spontaneous improvisations, whereas others have slowly evolved over time. There are underlying song structures that the listener will never hear—and this is where we find the unsaid and immeasurable.

The nine original compositions on the record display a broad range of dynamics and timbres, ranging from extremely quiet and understated passages to dense high energy playing, often blending the acoustics of the instruments with electronic processing.
