GORM ASKJÆR

Wednesday, Aug 21 2019

Working with the ensemble Lydenskab and author Ursula Andkjær-Olsen on music and words connected to the town of Pindstrup, Djursland. The past week we’ve been hearing a lot of exciting stories about the town, the people, the factory, the nature etc. All of this will be part of the musical work ‘En Symfoni Til Pindstrup’, premiered on Sep 7 2019, 19.30 at Pindstruphallen.

Working on a lot of exciting stuff at the moment. Right now on my table a saxophone quartet, and soon starting the project 'VORES HISTORIE GENFORTALT: En symfoni til et sted' with the ensemble Lydenskab, writer Ursula Andkjær Olsen and people of the good town Pindstrup, Djursland. We’ll be working with the stories and sounds of Pindstrup. It will be great fun ;-) Also, there will this fall be the release of a recording we made in May with Gorm Askjær Trio. Always really nice to play with Jens Mikkel Madsen (bass) and Thomas Eiler (drums), and I am looking forwarding to sharing the music with everybody.

The Story Of A Building: Vandtårnet

Watch a short video about this project, which I made in collaboration with dancer Pernille Malou Konzack Sørensen in the old water tower at Randersvej in Aarhus.

It was a performance of sound and dance exploring the rooms and history of the iconic building.
