All Ears opening concert:
Kim Myhr / Axel Dörner + Jooklo Duo + Ken Vandermark
Guitarist Kim Myhr tours the world as a solo performer with various bands and has over the years established a strong reputation in Australia, through his collaboration with Jim Denley and the band Mural. He is constantly searching for sonic treasures and approaches music with an open and patient behavior .
Berlin-based Dörner, a trumpeter, sound artist and genre switch, can be considered a mainstay of European improvised music. His dedication has given a new dimension and weight to the trumpet and improvised music.
Relentlessly touring duo from Italy. Saxophone and drums thundered off, raw and direct, like a perpetual energy charge. Hard hitting, speeded free jazz / noise with scissors tone that can shatter glass. Virginia Genta and David Vanzana, the two members constituting Jooklo Duo, also have an exciting, on-going collaboration with Bill Nace .
Vandermark has, for almost three decades, been a very important figure in the Chicago scene. Not only as a musician, but as an organizer, initiator and a strong driving force in the local scene of creative music. The Oslo audience is able to experience Vandermark in two very different settings at this year's All Ears festival.
