In C / Seascapes - Ars Nova Ensemble and guests - Sound Spaces Festival 20202020/10/31

Thrilled to be part of the closing concert of this year's Sound Spaces Festival. A special event that will take place at Bastionen, the heart of independent theatre in Malmö.

During the fist part a sort of live sound installation by Terry Riley will take place. The american minimalist invented a machine-like jam session called "In C", written for any instrumentation. Ars Nova Ensemble welcomes several musician guests to realize this apparently simple score, spread out in the entire theatre

Guests:

Peter Wilgotson
Jakob Riis
Ida Höög
Federico Tramontana
Alberto Cavallaro
Johannes Nästesjö

The second part of the concert focuses on solo instruments. Thanks to Ida Höög we will enter Romitelli's marine ”Seascape”, a masterpiece for amplified double bass recorder. On top of this, three world premieres: two written by Henrik Denerin and Jonatan Sersam, for double bass, performed by Johannes Nästesjö; and a solo piece for motorized clarinet and live electronics by Alessandro Perini, performed by Natalie Eriksson.

Program:

Terry Riley - in C
Fausto Romitelli - Seascape
Alessandro Perini - Intorno alla traccia
Jonatan Sersam - Debajo
Henrik Denerin - Seals IV

Bastionen, Norra Vallgatan 28, Malmö

Ear Sound Scape2020/10/10

Ear Sound Scape no. 5 is corona-safe walk where two guides shows the way through a world of breathtaking architecture and lush acoustics. It is a musical trip through Lokstallarna's bombastic main hall into hidden and forgotten spaces that ends in an in-discourse studio. Along the way, we encounter performance and installations that create a link between us and the site. The movement through the barren urban environment gives a unique sense of belonging. Welcome to join us on an exploratory journey that awakens our senses and leaves us with impressions and thoughts that stay for a long time.

Saturday, October 10th, 2020, 14:00
Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, Malmö
Tickets: SEK 150 - available here: https://www.kulturcentralen.nu/evenemang/ear-sound-scape

Cast: Jakob Riis, Jørgen Teller, Silas Bieri, Alexis R. Cancino, Lola Ajima, Yukao Nagemi
Dramaturgy: Emma Ribbing
Production: Jonna Eriksson, Jakob Riis

"Paradiseförsök" by Jakob Riis A live performance with trombone and electronics where Jakob Riis, in a quest for the inaccessible, breaks down sound to explore their components and resonance from different angles. This attempt at paradise is a ritual that makes sound materialize in space.

"Train Karma" by Jørgen Teller A sonic mini-concert inspired by the incredible soundscapes that the trains around Malmö create, and have created, all hours of the day in and around Lokstallarna. Jørgen Teller looks for the hidden noise and the special melody in the freight trains' meeting with the iron of the tracks, while he explores the variations in the windy sounds that the trains make. In Lokstallarna's now empty workshop hall, Teller explores the acoustics with experimental recordings that become a spatial reminder of the trains that once housed. "Train Karma" is a tribute to the free sound in a giant space.

"Draft of Silence # 1" by Silas Bieri & Alexis R. Cancino An audiovisual work that reflects on the transformation of Lokstallarnas. Even more than an audiovisual reflection, the work is a time document that depicts rooms that echo empty due to the city and the development of society. The silence created by routines. Silence as repetition or absence of sound.
Photography and music interact with astonishing architecture to break an imposed silence. But what exactly is silence and when is it broken?

"Völuspá" by Lola and Yukao Meet An audiovisual performance inspired by a dramatic northern story about the birth of the world and its violent destruction through the struggle against giants and gods. The immersive multi-channel electroacoustic composition, located with expressive lamentations from a cello, surrounds a hybrid performative digital and physical painting in a circle on the ground. The visual, projected on the floor and mixed with performative drawing, and the surrounding composition inaugurate the audience in a primitive ritual that evokes circular ceremonies from antiquity around a fire.

Lennart Ginman - double bass
&
Anne Andersson - trumpet
Carolyn Goodwin - bass clarinet
Claus Højensgård Andersen - trumpet
Nils Gröndahl - violin

The premiere perfomance with Rröd Bastard Ensemble took place with a breathtaking live recording concert november 2019 at H15 studio. The music are based on Teller's experience with his Real Red Bastard - e red 5 string Höfner Galaxy.

For this concert the ensemble will be enlarged with 5 outstanding musical guests; two trumpets, trombone, violin and bass clarinet. Several new compositions will be premiered with this special setting.

Guitars, horns and bowed string instruments will change effects and timbre will change continiously, with a movement towards a tutti where single soloists will carry the phrases into a dazzling light. The musical style draws inspiration from Alessandro Cortini's fuzz-synth-arpeggios, vamps, fading and large spaces.

The concert will be recorded for a release later this year.

Video by TV Marineret: KONCERTKIRKEN, VINTERJAZZ 2020 - The Orchestra & Jakob Riis2020/2/25

Henrik Jelstrup from TV Marineret was there, capturing the premiere of "Triadic Closure", a new composition for big band and electronics by Jakob Riis.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-dNkhalkhA&list=PLOPmBONRhzLDsMmjwGbvoCy3k5grgBDmf&index=6&t=985s

"Triadic Closure" is a musical investigation of unexpected encounters, arising through common acquaintances; airy, slow, compact, dense, transparent, light, floating, heavy, acoustic and electronic, sounds and music are elements that meet in a high-ceilinged and sonorous space.

For more than 25 years, the big band The Orchestra has managed to move the orchestra form into new contexts and is constantly working to redefine what you can do with an otherwise aging ensemble format. By involving musicians or composers who have completely different backgrounds and bypassing conventional frameworks for the use of big band, new areas are constantly being sought. The orchestra's trademark is a dense and intriguing ensemble sound - consisting of some of the most prominent musicians on the jazz scene, here complemented by the experimental electronic musician Christian Rønn.

LINEUP: Peter Fuglsang - sax, Kasper Wagner - sax, Anders Banke - sax, Francesco Bigoni - sax, Jan Harbeck - sax, Christer Gustafsson - trumpet, Jens Gotholdt - trumpet, Maj Berit Guassora - trumpet, Hendrik Jørgensen - trumpet, Steen Hansen - trombone, Mia Engsager - trombone, Niels Gerhardt - trombone Kim Aagaard - bass trombone/tuba, Jonas Johansen – drums, Kaspar Vadsholt - bass, Thor Madsen - guitar, Christian Rønn - electronics
