Velg antall  


The Ragazze Quartet with its classical roots, Slagwerk Den Haag with the sounds of today, and the idiosyncratic jazz trio Kapok...

Contrasting contours, but a common denominator: none of our three ensembles belong to a specific category. All three push the boundaries of our genres in our quest for new forms and adventurous joint projects. It is through this inquisitive musicianship that the unusual combination feels so wonderfully natural.

The choice for Riley’s repertoire gave another stir to our boundary reconnoitre. For Riley’s music allows considerable space for creativity and improvisation. The tension that arises through freedom within strict frames means that every performance is different. And it brings with it that the music has a strong sense of spontaneity and joie de vivre.

In In C, performed by the Ragazze Quartet and Slagwerk Den Haag, the dynamic range is enormous. Long, melodic lines as well as short, rhythmic motifs may be employed, producing an effect of both tranquil contemplation and pulsating explosiveness.

Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collector was originally written for string quartet. But the Ragazze Quartet invited jazz trio Kapok to make a new arrangement together.The mix of string quartet and horn, electric guitar and percussion, all expanded with electronic effects, offers a rich pallet of timbres. All this goes to bring the groovy rhythm and whimsical, improvisatory character of the music further to the fore.

In this way the combination of different ensembles forms the basis for our own unique version of Terry Riley’s In C and Sunrise. A version you have probably never heard before and will not hear anywhere else.

Klangen fra de dype skoger - Illevold, Bente (eufonium) / Kregnes Hansen, Anders (slagverk)

«Klangen fra de dype skoger» er musiker Bente Illevolds idé om å uttrykke sitt eget liv, forankret i tradisjon, identitet og kunstnerisk nyskaping. På denne plata er komponistene Rune Rebne, Ludvig Elblaus og Bjørn Kruse utfordret til å formidle Østerdalens naturskjønnhet, musikalske tradisjoner og østerdølens tilsynelatende mollstemte og avmålte karaktertrekk gjennom nye komposisjoner for eufonium.

“Sounds from the Deep Forests” is musician Bente Illevold’s idea of expressing her own life, rooted in tradition, identity, and artistic innovation. On this recording, composers Rune Rebne, Ludvig Elblaus, and Bjørn Kruse have been challenged to channel Østerdalen’s natural beauty, musical traditions, and its inhabitants seemingly mellow and measured character traits, through new compositions for euphonium.
