  • Equipped with a violin, pedals and his voice Danish violinist Nils Gröndahl goes on wild excursions into the land of repetition and improvisation. He can be loud as a thunderstorm with cumbersome distortion, but he can also be delicately subtle and intensely melodic - like the song, “Dreimal Ja”, he performed for us at his studio at Vesterbro in Copenhagen.

  • KOTTOS is a quartet of the most unlikely instruments - cello, bouzouki, accordion and recorder - producing an odd size package of folk music. The Copenhagen-based quartet has taken their name from Greek mythology and their music indeed explores a mythic sound of folk that include elements of baroque, a classical backbone and serious progressiveness.

  • Avant-garde pan-African spiritual music, free jazz and funk whirled in a social agenda by the legendary The Pyramids with Idris Ackamoor in front. The group goes back to the 1970’s where it grew out of a racially and socially troubled America but they also had their eyes set on Africa which was and still easily is heard in the group’s sound. The band put artistic freedom above everything else and self-released their records, however, this was probably on of the major reason for the band’s und...

  • Joshua Abrams, Lisa Alvarado and Frank Rosaly take us on a hypnotic travel in psychedelic improv music. Based on Abrams’ guimbri, a three­-stringed North African ceremonial instrument, their music reveals a story of traditional sounds being kneaded with the deepest of concentration into a contemporary instrumental chant. As Abram’s tells at the end of the video, their songs are more than just songs, they are environments for concentration and that is exactly spot on.

  • Sven-Åke Johansson was one of the main forgers of the European free jazz in the 1960s and he has ever since been working at the fringes of experimental music. His alternative approach to the drum kit has always been the centre of Johansson’s art, but his talent also spreads to spoken word and visual arts. August Rosenbaum and Lars Greve are both deeply involved in Danish experimental jazz. The three of them have performed and recorded music on and off since 2012 and we caught them before an a...

  • There is something beautifully unsettling about Richard Dawson’s music and lyrics, as he, with his falsetto voice and rattling guitar, creates music that is built upon remnants of folk music yet never really fits entirely in that box. Dawson’s songs have a spiritual edge to them as if they’re part of the hymn book of an ancient, forgotten religion from Newcastle in England where he’s spent most of his life - and it makes sense why Dawson calls it “ritual community music”.

  • The collaboration between Canadian saxophonist Colin Stetson and violinist and vocalist Sarah Neufeld of Arcade Fire is, at its most basic level, an exploration of the transcendent power of repetition. Drawing from a multitude of influences such as Steve Reich’s classical American minimalism, jazz and experimental rock, the two jointly chart their unique musical soundscape through interweaving patterns of near pointillist expression. They perform “The Sun Roars Into View” from their album “Ne...
