Motvind Records is releasing compositions by violinist Hans Kjorstad. Vendingo utta'om råket (english: «Turns out of the track») is a title that refers to the composers tendency to taking walks on and out of forest tracks, and it also tells something about the episode-like, or cinematic if you will, experience of the record as a whole.

«The album broadly consists of melodies that I have whistled or hummed while walking in the forest, along streets or across fields and other open landscapes. I have then arranged the melodies for the quartet and tried to put it into a form» says the composer.

The music was made during a 5-year period filled with all kinds of music for Kjorstad. After having Haltli, Thelin and Johansen as teachers at the Norwegian academy of music in Oslo, the work was premiered as his bachelor exam concert in June 2017. The record that now exists consists of a revised version of that music, and was recorded in Studio Paradiso by Marcus Forsgren. One should not deny that there is a certain gap in both age and experience between the young violinist and the other performers on the record. The composer wishes to send a respectful thanks to the three listening, down-to-earth and exceptional musicians he has with him: Frode Haltli, Håkon Thelin and Per Oddvar Johansen.

The record is released digitally and on vinyl in 100 copies. Kjorstad has hand printed the vinyl sleeves where the motif on the front cover and the text on both the front and back cover is carved out in wood.
