Norwegian avantgarde pioneer Sidsel Endresen has defined and re-defined vocal sound since her break-through in the early 1980s. Sidsel Endresen has worked with a vast number of musicians - in Norway and abroad, written music for films, theatrical productions as well as other commissioned work. She continues to be of huge inspiration to young vocalists (and improvisers in general!) around the globe. Her work has spanned genres from "fusion" and "jazz-rock in the -80's ,to free-improvisation,electronics and "new music" in the -90's and the new millennium.

Sidsel  Endresen har vært frontfigur i egne grupper og jobbet med en rekke norske og internasjonale jazzmusikere. Hun har arbeidet innen et bredt spekter av musikalske sjangere, inkludert moderne musikk, multimedia forestillinger, - solo med kor og symfonisk musikk, - samarbeidet med andre norske diktere og jobbet mye med stemmen som soloinstrument. Endresen har gitt ut 16 album og deltatt på utgivelser  med bla a Nils Petter Molvær, Bugge Wesseltoft, Jon Balke, Django Bates, Christof Lauer, Trygve Seim. Hun har også gjort filmusikk - både som sanger og låtskriver. Sidsel Endresen og Stian Westerhus vant i 2013 Spellemannspris for live-platen Didymoi Dreams i kategorien for beste jazz-plate. I november 2014 kom oppfølgeren Bonita.

AZKADENYA

 

In this trio one of Norway´s most prominent singers, Sidsel Endresen, meets the up and coming string duo Vilde&Inga. Azkadenya plays free improvised music with acoustic instruments, amplified to get a more rough and intense expression. For many years, Endresen has developed an unique expression and her own language based on sounds, far away from the traditional jazz singing. Aas and Alnæs have through their work with exploring the double bass and the violin developed an expression based on untraditional use of the instruments. Through a strong focus on details in the sound material the trio has found a common language.

I Azkadenya møtes en av Norges mest anerkjente musikere, Sidsel Endresen, og strykerduoen Vilde&Inga. Azkadenya spiller fritt improvisert musikk med akustiske lydkilder, mikket opp for å få et råere og mer intenst uttrykk. Sidsel Endresens nitidige arbeid med å utvikle stemmen har gitt henne et mer instrumentalt uttrykk, som ligger langt fra jazzens vokaltradisjon. Inga Margrete Aas og Vilde Sandve Alnæs har gjennom sin utforskning av instrumentene kommet fram til et lydbilde basert på utradisjonell bruk av strykeinstrumenter. Med ukonvensjonell bruk av alle de tre instrumentene oppnår trioen et rikt lydbilde.

 

SIDSEL ENDRESEN /JAN BANG

Sidsel Endresen, møter live-remix-guru Jan Bang. Gjennom flere års samarbeid har de to utviklet et helt unikt uttrykk med særskilt god kommunikasjon. Jan Bang har vært en grensesprengende pioner innen live-sampling. Gjennom samarbeid med flere av de fremste norske og internasjonale improvisasjonsmusikere som Jon Hassell, David Sylvian, Jan Garbarek, Arve Henriksen, Nils Petter Molvær, Bugge Wesseltoft og selvsagt Sidsel Endresen, har han redefinert improvisasjonsmusikk og brutt ned de tradisjonelle skillene mellom scene og studio

The long-standing musical relationship between Sidsel Endresen and Jan Bang has been one of evolution. Each beginning as individual chart-topping artists in various European countries in their own right, they have journeyed further from those roots into more daring, experimental and expressive territories.

The live interaction of Endresen’s unique voice and Bang’s singular mastery of live sampling creates a music that is predictable only in its ability to surprise, cajole, shock and seduce audiences in equal measure. The warmth they project makes them a rare thing: experimentalists that entertain.

Sidsel on working with Bang:
– The duo interplay with Jan Bang is 100% improvised – everything is created there and then. The two of us have worked together for years now, and have created close musical bonds over time.

– In my view, Jan is a unique creator and performer with his distinct instrumentarium, a hands-on improviser as well as an inspiring artistic partner. He is blessed with extremely good timing skills, big ears and a great clarity in terms of esthetic choices and form/structure. To add to that, he constantly challenges my vocal role through our concerts.

Jan Bangs career began in the late ‘80s, when he cut his first albums in a synth-and-vocals duo with Erik Honoré. By the ‘90s he was a producer of Norwegian pop acts, when pianist Bugge Wesseltoft invited him on stage with an improvising ensemble. “I had the idea of using musicians as ‘input’ to my sampler instead of vinyl,” recalls Bang. “We called it ‘live sampling.’ I found it appealing to work in a live situation with improvised music where things change at the blink of an eye. -I was able to work in past, present and future, according to what the other musicians were doing and how they reacted to what I was throwing back into the mix.”

SIDSEL ENDRESEN /HÅKON KORNSTAD

Two of Norway’s most exciting improvisers join forces

A concert consists of two sets - with solos by Endresen and Kornstad in the first one, and the second one as duo. In the solo parts, both Endresen and Kornstad will be performing from their celebrated solo albums, as well as new material. When the two musicians join forces in the second set for a duo – it is without any musical sanctions. Layered, spontaneous composition for voice and saxophone perhaps a more suitable term than "free improv". Expect both vast plains of sound and shorter songs with or without lyrics. Beats, blues and a nod to the tradition of singer- songwriters. www.kornstad.com

Konserten består av to sett - med solo av Endresen og Kornstad i den første, og den andre som duo. Solodelen gir Endresen og Kornstad muligheten til å framføre egne komposisjoner fra egne plater, men også nytt materiale. Når de to musikerne kommer sammen i andre sett som duo -  er det uten noen musikalske sanksjoner. Lagdelt, spontan komposisjon for tale-og saksofon er kanskje et mer passende begrep enn fri improvisasjon. Forvent både store landskaper av lyd -og kortere låter med tekster, og beats, blues og en og annen anerkjennelse til singer-songwriter tradisjonen.  www.kornstad.com
