Soundscape Orchestra (SO) started in 2012 when percussionist and laptop artist Thomas Wingren teamed up with piano virtuoso Adam Forkelid and drummer/big band arranger Calle Rasmusson. Together they wrote and arranged music for a twelve-piece orchestra, which was performed at a festival in Stockholm. In 2013, the project earned a sponsorship from the Swedish Jazz Federation. This time the group utilized a less orchestrated approach with a quintet setup. Two of the members from the original group, mallet specialist Anders Åstrand and reed player Peter Fredman were now joining the core trio. The quintet performed at the Stockholm Jazz Festival in 2015 to rave reviews.
