Many great reviews already for ¨The Wave¨
¨When Marcus Davidson and Roger Huckle pulverize the boundaries between Wild West Saloon and Middle Eastern Divan, the wave announced in the album title could break. Out of sheer good humor. And the pleasure of your own stamina. . . Not exactly simple. But still nice.¨
from Sonic Seducer, ¨Frog Chorus¨ is a secret highpoint!
Great review of ¨The Wave¨ by Musik an sich, 19 out of 20, contender for album of the year!
and from Chain D.L.K
. . . it’s carried by the polished composition, performance and production that give it an undeniable richness, vibrancy and class. It also has potential as a stepping stone for listeners of more traditional music who are intrigued by something that’s just a shade more experimental without being challenging.

Roger and Marcus premiered new works based on the music of Hildegard von Bingen at a house concert in Bergen on November 4th. The new music mixed chants from Hildegard von Bingen sung by Kat Kleve, with tabla rhythms, nature sounds and indian tempura drones. The concert was warmly received by a mixed audience, many who are unfamiliar with contemporary music.
