Description

Døre kl 19 / koncert kl 20
Bemærk: Koncerten foregår i AULA i Union på Nørrebro.

Saxofon, åndedrag og puls bliver til svævende og ildevarslende sci-fi-soundscapes hos Jason Sharp, der forener krop og teknologi i sin musik. Den danske elektroniske musiker Alto Aria åbner aftenen. 

Jason Sharp
Den canadiske saxofonist og komponist Jason Sharp er en central figur på Montreal’s avant-jazz scene, og en del af det ikoniske eksperimentelle label Constellation. Sharps musik forener teknologi og krop. Han filtrerer saxofon, åndedræt og puls gennem skræddersyet elektronik, så der dannes en form for elektroakustisk musikalsk biofeedback. Resultatet er hypnotiserende lydflader, der føles som soundtracket til en sci-fi-film – men med dybde og kropslighed.

Den 17. maj indtager Jason Sharp scenen med sit seneste album The Turning Center Of A Still World. Luftige saxofon-loops og en hjertemonitor, der bruges til at generere rytmerne til synthesizere og samplere, skaber til sammen en verden af blide, ildevarslende kompositioner, som vi glæder os til at træde ind i.

Alto Aria
Som opvarmning til Jason Sharp kan man opleve danske Alto Aria, Maria Leth Schütze’s soloprojekt. Med projektet undersøger hun relationer mellem akustisk og elektronisk lyd, og fokuserer på transformation og transition som indgangsvinkel til sin musik. Med hendes debut album ‘Tides’, som blev udgivet gennem Rhizome, sætter Maria fokus på tidevand, at blive en krop af vand og altings forgængelighed. Maria har desuden udgivet et lille eksperimenterende værk ‘For Marta’ om venskab og cirkularitet og albummet ‘Shapes’, der tager afsæt i en drømmedagbog. Til foråret udgiver hun albummet ‘Sowing Worlds’, og det glæder vi os til at opleve når hun gæster ALICE til maj.


// English:

Combining horn, breath, and pulse, electroacoustic composer Jason Sharp fuses technology and body into soaring, gentle, sci-fi-eqsue soundscapes of impending doom this May. Danish electronic musician Alto Aria opens the night.

Jason Sharp
A mainstay of Montreal’s avant-jazz, experimental and improv music community for many years, and hailing from the iconic experimental label Constellation, Jason Sharp is a saxophonist and electro-acoustic composer whose music fuses technology and the human body. Blending extended saxophone techniques with his horn, breath, and physical pulse filtered through customized electronics, Sharp charts a soaring soundscape of electroacoustic biofeedback.

On May 17th, Jason Sharp will take the stage with his latest album The Turning Centre Of A Still World, on which Sharp – in addition to breathy saxophone loops – employs a heart monitor to generate the rhythms of various synthesizers and samplers. The result is a collection of eerie and ominous sci-fi-soundtrack-esque compositions; but deeper, grittier, and earthier. 

Alto Aria
Alto Aria is the name of Maria Leth Schütze’s solo project. With the project, she investigates relations between acoustic and electronic sound and focuses on transformation and transition as a starting point in her music. With her debut album ‘Tides’, which was released through Rhizome, Maria focuses on tides, becoming a body of water and the transience of everything. Maria also released a small experimental piece, ‘For Marta’, on friendship and circularity, and the album ‘Shapes’, based on a dream diary. This spring she releases the album Sowing Worlds’, and we can’t wait to hear what’s in store as she visits ALICE this May.
