Last year I co-organized a festival celebrating that American composer Moondog would have turned 100 years old in 2016. Here’s a video from the first day of the festival, where we premiered one of Moondog’s compositions, which at the time had just been translated from braille. More videos and info here.
Very excited to announce that I am going on a solo tour in April - May. One stop in Greece and various stops in various cities throughout Japan. Especially looking forward to playing at SuperDeluxe in Tokyo as part of the Opposite2007 programme. Looking forward to not just sitting by my window at home.
You can still pre-order my upcoming release The Four Seasons (of which i am really really proud) via this kickstarter campaign. The campaign is crucial to the release of the album, and it closes on thursday February 15! Here is a new video with a preview of the music.
My new album The Four Seasons will be out in May 2017. The album is by far my most ambitious to date, and I am really excited. But it won’t get made unless this Kickstarter campaign secures the production. If you pre-order a copy or make a small donation today, the release can be realised. The price of pre-ordering is the same as the final price of the album once released, so if you are considering to buy the album anyway you should do it now - especially as the album will not get made unless this Kickstarter secures the production!
The music still needs mixing and mastering, but this video will give you an idea of the style. I am really looking forward to sharing the music with you all!
My trio Dødens Garderobe continues the tradition of releasing a musical christmas calendar to celebrate christmas.
Each day of December the we will release a christmas song, and each song will feature a guest musician from the Danish music scene. This year's calendar marks the 7th annivesary.
Dødens Garderobe sees the christmas calendar as a comminity project and an attempt to break down barriers between genres an musicians. An hommage to art and it’s ability to bring people together in a world that needs this more than ever.
Follow the calendar for free from December 1st through christmas day!
