This rare meeting has developed into this exciting CD ”Opus apus”. The title refers to that the major part of the compositions have got titles from names of birds in Latin. Christian Jormin cooperates since a few years with modern dance improvisers and has also a trio of his own. He is also involved in drum work with modern Scandinavian folkmusic groups.
