Amardillo Events glæder sig til at byde publikum velkommen til en aften på Islandsbrygge Kulturhus med to stærke orkestre fra den eksperimenterende københavnske musikscene.
Jacob Anderskov’s RESONANCE:
Jacob Anderskov er blevet beskrevet af den internationale presse som “a dazzling new force in European jazz” (Jazzwise), og hans orkester RESONANCE blander ubesværet elementer fra klassisk musik, ny musik, verdensmusik, jazz og improvisationsmusik. Resultatet skal høres!, men derefter er man ikke i tvivl om hvad der er på færde.
De 3 strygere understreger den poetiske skønhed i Anderskovs musik. Intuitivt stærke reaktioner tilføjes fra Peter Bruun (trommer) og Anderskov selv (piano). Musikken er storslået og simplistisk, lyrisk og dog uforudsigelig - og yderst umiddelbart fængende.

Female rulers of Sun Ra’s Saturn colony? Rebel refugees from the eighties synth-pop? Goddesses gibberish trash talk? Hyperactive tone geologists that will blow your head while drilling into the core of this planet? Witty feminist criticism of masculine-muscular free jazz?
Shitney was formed in 2015 with the purpose of creating contrasting acoustic/electric music. The three members of Shitney are all sonically familiar with each other, having previously crisscrossed in various musical constellations on the Copenhagen scene. Here are three women who are all on the fringe of musical normality, in their own ways. Together, they create an unpredictable mix of the concrete and abstract, using beats and samples, as well as synthetic and organic sounds.
