Minco Eggersman and Theodoor Borger started collaborating under the moniker UNIFONY. For this project they invite various guest musicians to find the pure essence of music with them. Together, they wander off the beaten track and rediscover purity by experimenting. They do not compose music based on musical notes but they use carefully crafted layered sounds instead.

UNIFONY II shows us how music can talk to the heart without knowing how this happens. This second album in the series by Minco and Theodoor has come into being during what turned out to be a difficult time for Theodoor. At the end of the period around UNIFONY I Theodoor ended up suffering from a long depression.

The world stopped turning and the sun did no longer rise for the 37-year-old musician and engineer. In these dark times music was one of the powers that kept him going. The friendship with Minco and the free form in which the music of UNIFONY could come to life offered him the room to let go what held him back.

Taking serious the smallest musical ideas by Theodoor and encouragement by Minco gave Theodoor comfort, satisfaction and purpose. Recognizing all of this by Minco, who recorded a similar period on his solo album HAMDEN before, created a deepening of their bond.

Within the UNIFONY-project, collaboration is sought after with one or more musicians every time. This time it is Aaron Parks (piano) and Óskar Gudjónsson (saxophone) who made the songs even more powerful with their inspiring ideas. Óskar’s soft tones Theodoor got to know from the album ‘The Box Tree’ by Skúli Sverrisson and Óskar Gudjónsson in 2013 which has become a classic since. While traveling Iceland Theodoor discovered this special album and thus Óskar ended up on his shortlist for a UNIFONY cooperation. And so it happened.

The piano virtuoso Aaron Parks, famous for his work for Blue Note Records and ECM Records, had been on Minco’s wish list for ages. After listening to UNIFONY I Aaron was immediately interested in working with them. His clear and jazzy way of playing put Eggersman and Borger’s compositions in a different spotlight and his interpretations and harmonies ensured inspiration for all involved. Immediately after Aaron’s European tour Minco and Aaron drove to Theodoor’s studio where an intimate atmosphere arose in a relatively short time, in which Aaron responded to Eggersman and Borger’s rough ideas without any preparation and at the spot. The result was especially good and eventually inspired Óskar Gudjónsson for his part.
