Oh dear, where to begin? Another great week for Edition·S–music¬sound¬art with brilliant news and performances. So, lets start this Friday with a flashback before the fanfare of the weekend takes over. Last weekend, our very own Jexper Holmen was portrayed in a well-written article in the Danish newspaper Politiken.
This was not the only place Jexper Holmen was portrayed this week. Nivågaard Art Collection was host to a portrait concert Wednesday evening. At this idyllic venue, among art from the renaissance, beneath the high ceiling, an overwhelming catastrophe took place. Jexper presented the concert by introducing the audience to his philosophy of composing three kinds of music: pre-catastrophic, catastrophic and post-catastrophic music. And of course the concert started in the epicentre of a tonal earthquake. It was truly a celebration of disorientation.
More greatness happened when our head of sales & hire Unni Trap Lund returned to the office after a long trip to Shanghai.
After only one day she had sold every piece that she had brought with her on the journey. We are very happy with all the interest in our composers and their works, and we are working on exciting things to our friends in China. So, stay tuned!
All the pictures of the city Unni brought back home were taken by night, because she was too busy in the daytime. But it looks remarkable with all of the lights.
Speaking of night-time, the Wundergrund Festival for new and experimental music and sound art is starting this evening at the Glyptotek in Copenhagen. We are ready for a spectrum of pretty sounds and performances and we are already mentally there.
Hope to see you for some of the performance – perhaps Trio Gamán’s performance of Rune Glerup on Tuesday?
Have a great weekend and make sure to join us at Twitter and LinkedIn – we would love to hear from you!
