Anderskov Kinetics: Mysteries - out digitally Nov 17, 2017 November 15, 2017 15:10
Release date: Digital: Nov 17, 2017, LP: February 2018.
Jacob Anderskov's Kinetics has been playing intensively around northern Europe since its formation in 2014. The tour up to this recording started in London, featuring the legendary Evan Parker, and passed through several countries before ending at LOFT in Köln, where this album was recorded. Side A of the LP is the end of the first set, side B is the opening of the second set. So you could argue that the 7 compositions on the album are done in one long take.
(The band name) Kinetics, a branch of classical mechanics, is concerned with forces on bodies in motion. This no matter if these bodies be drones, drum sticks or planets – and relating to as well the movement through a terrain as that through outer space to another planet. (The album title), Mysteries, points beyond the physical domain, and into our interpretations of the forces behind the physical phenomena. It suggests an opening towards realms bigger or more incomprehensible than ours. To phenomena that will exist when we are no more here.
ZAKS - Zaks Live at 5e - out April 29th, 2016! April 29, 2016 12:27
Zaks Live at 5e is one set of improvised music recorded live at 5e, the venue that has become the epitome of the ILK collective during festivals. By the labor of a persistent fan these recordings eventually fell in the hands of the band who instantly recognized the magic of the performance. It was something quite unique and now it has made its way on to this album.
The four band members have been playing for years in the larger ensemble Anderskov Accident, but came together for their first quartet performance on July 13, 2014, which resulted in their debut recording: ZAKS Live at 5e.
Jesper Zeuthen - sax
Jacob Anderskov - piano
