For The Fifth Edition Festival for Other Music we offer an opportunity to go deep with a small selection of wonderful things.
We present nine pieces by Eliane Radigue (who celebrates her 90th birthday in January) including a brand new work for quintet — Occam Hexa V — commissioned by the festival. Radigue’s music ushers a virtuoso focus that opens up the vertiginous nature of the inconceivable and we are thrilled to host these performances by Silvia Tarozzi violin, Julia Eckhardt viola, Deborah Walker cello, Nate Wooley trumpet, Enrico Malatesta percussion. This will open each night.
أحمد [Ahmed] — the quartet of Pat Thomas piano, Seymour Wright alto sax, Joel Grip double bass and Antonin Gerbal drums— will play the closing set all five nights. These kind of multi-night runs are all too rare these days and we can’t think of a group who could do more to imagine the possibilities of this opportunity than [Ahmed].
[Ahmed] make music of heavy rhythm, repetition and syncopation set deep into an understanding of jazz and the obscure depths of its history. The group work and rework the music of the late musician Ahmed Abdul-Malik to create a stamping, swinging, relentlessly propulsive music where profundity and physicality root right back to ecstatic feeling.
For the first two nights we are collaborating with Thanatosis Produktion to present new work by Magnus Granberg — Night Will Fade and Fall Apart — which takes two different songs by the late medieval composer Solage as well as the jazz standard My Foolish Heart as its points of departure. Performed by a new ensemble of Josefin Runsteen violin, My Hellgren cello, Finn Loxbo guitar, Ryan Packard percussion, John Eriksson vibraphone & percussion and Anna Christensson piano.
The next two nights will host solo vocal performances by Sofia Jernberg (Friday) and Pär Thörn (Saturday) and on the Sunday we welcome Fylkingen mainstays WOL (Wenche Tankred and Lovisa Johansson) for something uncategorisable (and as yet unknown).
