ONLY CONNECT FESTIVAL OF SOUND 2018
FRIDAY 25 MAY
23:30 Marmorsalen, Sentralen
Anja Lauvdal and Heida Mobeck make up the improv duo Skrap, noted for their experimental genre crossings between jazz, pop, hip hop and improvisation etc. They are also members of the groups Broen, Skadedyr and Moskus, and have worked with the likes of Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Jenny Hval.
The jazz band Skrap VI creates catchy hooks, danceable rhythms and melodic groove that smash together with noise, music conréte, free jazz and improv. In their new commission work for Only Connect, they clash contemporary music with the outbursts, aesthetics and lyrics of popular music.
Skrap’s thoughts on the work:
- We want to illuminate contemporary music, improv and jazz through the sunglasses og pop music, to make it break out in all its vitality and power. We believe this approach also helps to strengthen the pop aesthetics. We want to show that a pop soundscape also belong in the structures and compositions of contemporary music.
