In collaboration with one of Denmarks celebrated young documentary directors, Sofie Tønsberg, the pricewinning orchestra Sekten has made a fascinating music film.
On stage, the scandinavian orchestra Sekten gives the audience a total conceptual experience of performance and music. With focus on improvisation, intuition and interaction, this unique band delivers a constantly surprising performance. Since 2003 Copenhagen based Sekten has presented their whiff of madness and frail naivety combined with musical breadth and instrumental mastery.
This combination of Sektens experimenting sound space with their strong visual expression is manifestated in the film KLUBBHUS. Together with the young and talented documentary director Sofie Tønsberg, they made an inventive music film that invites the audience into a world sliding between storytelling and sound esthetics.
The action of the film flourish in an atmosphere of both eccentric and bizarre elements. Sektens mother invites the members into her house – the ”KLUBBHUS”. One by one they put on their similar white shirts, black ties and heavy glasses. Then Sekten performs their rituals and praises in a musical dialogue through which they asses a strong relationship. This ultimately breaks down into pieces when Sektens members split up and move back to ”real life”.
