Works commissioned by the ensemble Lydenskab for a project working with stories of relations and isolation during the covid-19 pandemic of 2020. Includes fifteen short pieces for flute, violin and cello - and five songs for small chamber ensemble featuring singers Bjørn Fjæstad (Baal, Rytteriet) and Katinka Fogh Vindelev (We Like We). The songs were composed over poetic texts by Ursula Andkjær Olsen and with video presentation by Tine Reingaard. More info

Today we released the EP ‘En Særlig Gåtur I Parken’ by Gorm Askjær Trio with two bonus tracks from the same recording session as our album ‘Blodmånen Og Dig’. The title track is a playful tribute to the green oases in our cities - and was composed after a particularly atmospheric trip through the Botanical Garden in Aarhus. In addition, we play our version of the song All Is Well, which originally comes from the American church choir tradition Sacred Harp, but i.a. has also been sung by singer-songwriter Sam Amidon.

Today and tomorrow I am recording new music I have composed for ensemble Lydenskab and the project Lydbreve. Texts by Ursula Andkjær Olsen based on letters from people to their loved-ones during the covid-crisis. Heartwarming stories about the relationships that really matter to us - as well as the challenges of these new times for everyone. Fantastic musicians from Lydenskab and singers Bjørn Fjæstad and Katinka Fogh Vindelev. Can’t wait to present this to the world.
