Boelger - Lydkollektivet Newclear January 24, 2020 11:58

Boelger is a collection of sci-fi and psychedelic instrumental landscapes that surrounds vocal stories about our relationship with living and dying. The music is created in a unique collaboration where the different band members are connected and able to improvise with each others sounds. Together this creates a delicate mix between electronic manipulated sound, acoustic sound, and field recordings. The inspirations are diverse and come from a.o. ambient, serial music, krautrock, west-african and east-asian music.

Drapery is a recording of graphic notated songs by Laura Toxværd. The album is a mix of improvisation and composition. About her compositional process she explains: «Sometimes I need something abstract and improvisational, and then I like to design a graphic score where I note this to the musicians. Other times, I see the need for something that has more to do with tones, harmonies and rhythms, and then I note it on music paper.» 
Lineup:

LAURA TOXVÆRD – ALTO SAX
GUSTAF LJUNGGREN – VARIOUS STRINGS/GUITARS
PETER FRIIS NIELSEN – ELECTRIC BASS
MARILYN MAZUR – PERCUSSION, DRUMS

Songbook contains texts, lyrics and notations of the two albums Tidens strøm & Drapery. Music, words and images are mutually embedded in each other in the sense that the notations in the songbook can be considered visual expressions of the sound of the albums’ music. And the other way round is the music created from the songbook’s lyrics and notations. The texts in the book tell about the process the entire work went through while it was being created.

Listening to Dear Earthling by Fosterchild is to step into a universe which is deeply sensitive and intuitive, yet highly sophisticated in its proportions and dimensions. Uniting a post-jazz and contemporary music (Echtzeitmusic) -vibration, with a deeply existential introspection, it is the sound of surrendering to things grander than ourselves. In November 2018, Deutschlandfunk’s Harald Rehmann offered the ensemble three days in the large recording room in Cologne. These recordings have now been mixed and mastered - and the dialogical interplay is ignited and igniting.
Lineup:
SEBASTIAN GILLE – SAXOPHONES

JACOB ANDERSKOV – PIANO
DAVID HELM – BASS
FABIAN ARENDS – DRUMS

"And as he finishes with "Dinner Root", we have been through an exceptionally beautiful journey in the cello's sound universe, which is both exciting, fascinating and beautiful." (Salt-peanuts)

 
 
In 1976 Strange Brothers was formed by Simon Spang-Hanssen, Peter Danstrup og Ole Rømer. Later the same year the group won 1st price at the International Jazz Festival in Dunkerque, France, and shortly after saxophone legend John Tchicai joined the band. In the following years the toured a lot in former West- and East Germany, Denmark and Sweden. Two iconic records were made: ‘Darktown Highlights’ and ‘Free Concert’. Critics called the band ‘the white swan of Danish jazz’ and now they're back! The present release "The Bird Next Tree" is shaped by the diversity of the composers and demonstrates a remarkable breadth, versatility and flexibility.

"It is very easy to get thrilled about that Strange Brothers are back together." (Jazznyt)

 
 
”Stand On Your Feet and Fight” is a new release by Peter Jensen & DR Big Band that deals with Danish colonial history through music and field recordings. The work is intended as a contribution to the debate on how Danmark holds a past as a slave nation and colonial power in its national identity. On the occasion of the centennial of the sale of The Danish West Indian colonies to The United States, The Royal Danish Library asked composer Peter Jensen to write a work for the DR Big Band, based on material from the library's collections. The result ended far from the "calypso project" that the DR Big Band had wanted and the concert performances received mixed receptions with both enthusiastic reviews and furious audiences demonstratively walking out during performances.

Reviews:
5/5***** "Any music that can make one think afresh about the transcendent soulfulness of Coltrane's Alabama or the dialectics of Kierkegaard has to have something special to it" (Jazz Journal)
 
OMHU is the fourth album by Simon Toldam Trio, where the band presents a series of sonic explorations in slowness, elaborating on the concept of the titular word, which in Danish means “being precise, careful, and conscientious in the execution, treatment, or care of something.” Recorded in the magnificent acoustics of Germany’s Sendesaal Bremen, the trio explores Toldam’s freshly composed material with the utmost OMHU, vibrating presence, and breathless depth.

Electro-acoustic trio TEETH releases their debut "Open Up" November 16, 2018 08:00

“Welcome to an auditive anarchy where the sound palette is expanded to the extreme”

Scandinavian trio TEETH released their debut album "Open Up" on the 16th of November. A tribute to both electronic music, free improv and sound art on an album that’s been created through improvisation where the bands focus on working as an organism has been manifested.

The trio unites three highly interesting scandinavian musicians within electro-acoustics. TEETH is Anders Filipsen (DK), Herman Müntzing (SE) og Håkon Berre (NO), who on ‘Open Up’ in an organic whole explores objects and auditive textures. The broad variety of soundscapes varies between static moments and noise, extreme dynamics, uneven rhythmical structures, minimalism and scruffy landscapes.


Kasper Tranberg's "Terzet" marks the second release of his trilogy “Suite Cobra” October 12, 2018 09:30

This album was recorded after a month-long artist in residence at the underground club 5E in Copenhagen and presents an intimate frame for Tranberg’s heartfelt playing, and is a beautiful portray of textures, extended forms, melodic interplay and a deep feeling rooted slow grooves and repitition.The interplay in the Terzet finds its foundation in 25 years of friendship and collaborations.

ZAV - Zeuthen/Anderskov/Vestergaard "Out of Spectacle" out on vinyl September 21, 2018 11:11

“Out of the Spectacle” is the crystallisation of a continuing collaboration between three Danish improvising musicians from three different generations, that places itself somewhere between textural improvisation, expressive free jazz and abstract soul. Together the three musicians create a non-conceptual and bodily music that meets the audience in a both challenging and atoning way, emotionally multidimensional and spacious. They have developed a personal interplay where influences, dynamics and intentions float freely between each other, melt together in synergy and explode in abstraction, and where the aim is to create space instead of filling it up. A sort of reconciliatory blues to the great spectacle.
More info here.

Q aka Qarin Wikström new solo debut is out on vinyl! August 31, 2018 09:00

Q has combined her history in freely improvised and abstract music with the rich tradition of Swedish songwriting, while playfully blending genres, references, and influences into her own singular vision. Clear, catchy pop-like melodies join futuristic protest songs, ritualistic forms, and hypnotic polyrhythms, warning us of something ominous but also offering a light at the end of the tunnel. Innovative and divergent, Q’s beautiful and sometimes challenging music brings to mind David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy and Nico’s “The Marble Index.”

Kasper Tranberg: Strawboss June 15, 2018 10:35

With his album, Strawboss, Kasper Tranberg debuts his new international sextet and also marks the first release of the upcoming trilogy “Suite Cobra”.
“Strawboss” is an exciting frame for Tranberg’s heartfelt playing, and is also an explosion of improvisations based on Tranberg's compositions which focus on tonal constructions, abstract soundscapes, longer forms and grooves.

Peter Jensen & DR Big Band "Crystal Palace" is out on LP and digitally May 25, 2018 07:00

Crystal Palace is about the attraction of abandoned places and the poetics of eroding surfaces. Conceived as an exploration of a sonic architecture in an advanced state of decay Crystal Palace takes the listener through six locations of an imaginative ruined structure. With the haunting images of the dying city of Detroit as a backdrop Peter Jensen sets out to create a milestone and a manifesto for future work.

Johanna Sulkunen Sonority - KOAN - out May 11, 2018! May 11, 2018 11:43

On her third album Koan, Johanna Elina Sulkunen has launched a new solo project called Sonority.  The project invites to a multilayered travel of sounds of a human voice mixed with electronics and touching on life’s big questions.  The name of the album, Kōan means: a paradoxical anecdote or riddle without a solution, used in Zen Buddhism to demonstrate the inadequacy of logical reasoning and provokes enlightenment.  

All the sounds on the album are based on vocal sounds and field recordings from Japanese Buddhist temples and manipulation of them– electronically.
