ILK’s 10th Anniversary at Copenhagen Jazz Festival

The year of 2013 sees the 10th anniversary of the avant-garde jazz record label ILK Music, which is celebrated this summer with an impressive line up at Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

From July 5 to 14, 2013 the city of Copenhagen turns into a Mecca of jazz music, when the annual jazz festival kicks off. ILK Music is a regular component with its very own stage at 5e in Kødbyen (the meat packing district), but this year it presents an extra large programme filled with avant-garde music as a celebration of the 10 years the label has existed. ILK promises sizzling music – 10 days, 50 concerts, 95 musicians!

As ILK’s partner Edition·S – music¬sound¬art is on the programme with a curated evening of art music. Audiences get a unique opportunity to experience Simon Steen-Andersen in an impro-duo together with jazz pianist Søren Kjærgaard as well as Simon Christensen’s magnetizing Feed Lifting Sound. So please join us at 5e Monday July 8, 2013 from 8 pm onwards.

ILK Music and Edition·S’ partnership began in 2011 when the first “The E·Sessions” was released with the composer collective DYGONG as artists. In February 2013 Edition·S curated the first concert at Copenhagen Winter Jazz Festival took place with Simon Christensen and the vocal duo LIFT. This was followed by the release of the second “The E·Sessions” with Line Tjørnhøj as artist in June 2013.
