Sture Ericson - as, ts, cl, bcl, free improviser, has been active on the European scene for many years. Emerged with the Swedish group Position Alpha in the 80-s, and has been playing in The Electrics, a quartet with Axel Dörner, Joe Williamson and Raymond Strid since 2000.

Ericson has developed a personal expression on saxes and clarinet, including various extended technics, preparations and  deconstructions of the instruments. Lately he has started experimenting with live electronics in combination with the instruments. More traditional approaches, like free jazz and jazz, are also a part of his musical palette.
