Sunday, June 13th – 4 pm – Double concert
Jakob Buchanan has a unique beautiful voice on his flugelhorn and trumpet. During his career his has presented an original body of work, both as an instrumentalist and a composer, investigating formats from intimate jazz over big band music and choir music. For this concert Jakob will be performing solo, a unique opportunity to see this great musician in the most intimate and honest setting possible.
Ensemble Transduct is a group dedicated to performing the most curious and adventurous new music. Transduct’s work is reflecting the present time, a time where the physical and the digital reality is merging, and where ideas that were once taken for granted is constantly reevaluated and recontextualized. Transduct is both working as a creative ensemble and collaborating with composers, and at this concert we will present pieces by Marta Sniady, Xavier Bonfill, Loic Destremau and Ensemble Transduct.
The festival is made possible with support from Statens Kunstfond & Aarhus Kommune.
