New release!
August 24th is a very special day for SOFA. After a long time of planning we are now ready to present our first vinyl release!

SVAL TORV (double 140g vinyl) consists of 9 pieces by the unique trumpet and saxophone duo Streifenjunko. Cover art is by the Norwegian video artist Kjell Bjørgeengen with sleeve design by Rutger Zuydervelt. Inside you’ll find liner notes by Jim Denley.
"Streifenjunko’s utopia is the latest mutation in the remarkable evolution of collectively authored music, a model which is cogent for making the new dialects and creoles of today’s and tomorrow’s musics, (and not just musics)." (Jim Denley)

Pre orders of this exclusive vinyl can be done by sending us a mail (sofa@sofamusic.no), or clicking the button below. All orders made before August 24th can be bought for 150 NOK + shipping (regular price is 200 NOK).
2LP + shipping
On this occasion we would also like to give our customers an opportunity to buy Streifenjunkos debut-cd "No longer burning" from 2009 for just 50 NOK + shipping. The special sale will last until the end of September.
"One of the most potent and original spins on free improvisation I’ve heard in years."
Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
We would also like to remind you about our latest releases:
The unknown knowns - Muringa, SOFA538

"Subtle, full of character and vision. Really strong." (Album of the month.)
Free Jazz Blogspot
Nude on Sand - Jenny Hval and Håvard Volden, SOFA537

"The sparse Nude on Sand shows that even bare bones can create an impact."
The arts desk
"The sheer ascetic surrealism of this record takes some doing to stomach, but this is very much why Jenny Hval is now getting much attention. She is, like Sidsel Endresen or Maja Ratkje, a fearless performer and artist, who knows no boundaries and is incapable of compromising"
The Milk Factory
Microtub - Hayward/Lo/Taxt, SOFA536

"...an amazing depth of twining tones, long-held, resonating, forming fluctuating pulses that buffet the eardrums in delicious fashion."
Brian Olewnick
"On a close listen, you’ll perceive the bubbling-and-hissing activity that no zealot of reductionist EAI wants to miss; however the best effect is achieved, as always in similar cases, by letting the radiations diffuse at average volume in a sort of instantaneous therapy."
Touching Extremes
Balances des Blancs - Silencers, SOFA535

Picked as Top 5 Jazz Album of the year by Le Monde Diplomatique

"An ensemblesound with strong character"
