29.10.18 - Ekseks-i @ Kunsthal Aarhus
Tango ekseks-i is a series of concerts that aims at exploring music between western contemporary music and tango. Not a fusion and not a crossover, but music that is both tango and european music at the same time. The two have given inspiration to each other throughout the 20st century, and Tango ekseks-i wants to further this kinship and present the tango music of the 21st century.
Tango ekseks-i 2018 is concerts with the norwegian duo Julie & Andreas and Ensemble ekseks-i – Tango ekseks-i’s own ensemble created for this occasion. Julie & Andreas translates a traditional tango repertoire to the unusual duo of harp and bandoneon, and draws as well on northern european folklore and argentinian folklore in their own compositions.
Ensemble ekseks-i is an octet with the combined forces of the danish ensemble Erhværv and Julie & Andreas. They play music written by the bandoneonist and composer Anders Skibsted, written with these to concerts in mind. An open abstract music that tries to combine the explorations of western contemporary music with the wholehearted sincerity of tango music.
