CJF2017: The Bird, The Piano & The Drum
Set in a bastardlike realm of warped acousticallity fused with an unprecendented use of the piano’s low-register, ‘The Bird, The Piano, The Drum’ is the exciting new musical venture embarked upon by Søren Gemmer.
It explores fluid non-metric rhythmic realities, and draws among other sources upon tiny fragments of Messaien’s birdsong piano compositions.
Also, a fiery unit of players, one to behold and hear.
Tomasz Dabrowski (POL) – trumpet // Tobias Wiklund (SWE) – trumpet/flügelhorn // Bjørn Heebøll – drums // SG – electronically manipulated grand piano

CJF2017: Thure Lindthardt/Søren Gemmer – ‘Alting Har En Tid – Nye Stemmer II’
SG will be performing with actor Thure Lindhardt in a musical reading of ‘Ecclesiastes’ from the canonical Wisdom Books in the Old Testament upon invitation from Saint Mark’s Church in Frederiksberg, CPH, during the CJF 2017.
Electronically manipulated acoustic grand piano and analog synths projecting a phantasmagoria of sounds in a quadrophonic setup from all four corners of the church enveloping the reading by Lindhardt, well-known for his appearances in feature films ‘Flammen og Citronen’, ‘Nordkraft’, ‘Angels & Demons’ and many more.

CJF2017: The Lark
As listener, it is as if you get hopelessly lost in a mirror tent like Orson Welles in The Lady From Shanghai. Everything is constantly on the move and nothing is what it seems. The entry points change continuously. Sharp contours dissipate and glide into sensual animal calls. Poetic passages become transfigured into dark psychological sketches. Behind the sometimes seemingly deliniated decor lie suddenly other dimensions. Enter at your own risk. – Georges Tonla-Briquet, Jazzmozaïek (BE)
