Two days of electroacoustic improv: Filipsen/Müntzing/Berre + Nguyễn Thanh Thủy & Jakob Riis
Two evenings in Copenhagen and Malmö where the trio Filipsen/Müntzing/Berre and the duo of Nguyễn Thanh Thủy & Jakob Riis will share the bill:
January 29th, 2016, 8pm. Christianshavn Beboerhus, Dronningensgade 34, Copenhagen
January 30th, 2016, 8pm. Inter Arts Center (4th floor), Bergsgatan 29, Malmö
Anders Filipsen (DK) - keyboards and knobs
Herman Müntzing (SE) - electronics, objects and voice
Håkon Berre (NO) - drums, objects and electronics
This trio unites three extremely interesting Scandinavian musicians in the electro-acoustic genre. Together they creates extraterrestrial soundscapes beyond genre and imagination. From one breathless flock of birds to schizophrenic patterns and doom rhythms. Each member's personal expression contributes to the whole, creating a synergic wall of sound.
Nguyễn Thanh Thủy & Jakob Riis
Nguyễn Thanh Thủy (VN/SE) - đàn tranh
Jakob Riis (DK/SE) - computer, cymbals, electronic feedback
This duo with the Vietnamese musician Nguyễn Thanh Thủy, who grew up with traditional Vietnamese music in a theatrical family in Hanoi, and Danish-Swedish Jakob Riis creates a complex microtonal sounding soundscape with bent notes and stretched pulses in an electro-acoustic improvisation. The cooperation between the vietmesiske musician Nguyễn Thanh Thủy and Danish-Swedish Jakob Riis go back to Hanoi New Music Meeting in October 2009 where musicians from Europe and Vietnam met in Hanoi in a meeting between traditional Vietnamese and experimental Western music. The duo has played concerts in Vietnam, Denmark and Sweden. In 2010 they released the CD Tranh Improvisation on the Vietnamese label Phương Nam Phim.
