“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...
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.” Buy it here
