Place: Koncertkirken Blågårds Plads, Copenhagen N, Denmark
As a part of G((o))ng Tomorrow SCENATET will play release concert of the new cd Songs & Movements with works by Danish composer Jeppe Just Christensen.
The cd features the brand new work Three Songs in 9 Movements in nine parts, written for SCENATET and performed live together with Jeppe Just Instituttet this evening.
In Three Songs in 9 Movements the nine movements are grouped three, three and three. That means that the melodies and chords are of the same material in movement one, four, seven etc. The listener can easily hear that along the way. The music is put together with traditional and home-made instruments – and a few instruments that don’t normally belong in classical music like ukuleles, melodicas and mouth organs. But despite all the new instruments the soundscape is in a way still very simple.
Besides Three Songs in 9 Movements the cd features two older pieces by Jeppe Just Christensen: Movin’ (2005) and Douglas (2009) – both written for and performed by SCENATET.
