Emerald – album on the way

Lotte Anker, tenor sax & soprano sax – Anders Banke, bass klarinet, clarinet & alto flute – Henriette Groth, clarinet & viola – Jacob Anderskov, piano – Nils Davidsen, bass & cello – Peter Bruun, drums.

Light, shadow and deep dark color combinations alternate effortlessly in the soundscape of this new studio album from Jacob Anderskov. The music is saturated with color and yet transparent; A mixture of restrained mystery and tenderness towards the unfamiliar timbres, with room for the musicians’ expressive, improvised contributions.

The album was partly supported by KODA KULTUR. Final master has been sent to the printing factory. Release: March 2023 (exact date TBA). Format: LP & digital (+ Sheet music book: The Gemstone Series – see post below).

Promotion links to final master audio can be supplied on demand for booking purposes – see contact.

Sheet Music Book “The Gemstone Series”.

In December, the Sheet Music Book “The Gemstone Series – 20 Sonic Complexion Miniatures” will be released by ILK Music / ILK Publishing.

The pieces are for 1 to 6 musicians – the exact number of performers is flexible for all compositions. All pieces include improvised sections. Some of the pieces are released on the Anderskov albums “Emerald”, Kinetics’ “Mysteries”, and Fosterchild’s “Dear Earthling”. Other pieces have been performed, but not yet recorded, by these ensembles, as well as by Resonance and Allusion. The series of compositions is among the offsprings of Anderskov’s artistic research project Sonic Complexion (2018-2021).

Sonic Complexion exposition published

The final dissemination of the large scale artistic research project Sonic Complexion is now published at Research Catalogue through the RMC portal.

The project presentation can be accessed through this Link to the Final Research Catalogue Exposition of Sonic Complexion.

The project has resulted in a number of albums (most central were, in chronological order: Dear Earthling, Anterior Current, Spirit of the Hive), as well as texts, card decks, multiple mapping systems, models & strategies, and so forth.

The exposition was peer reviewed by three peer reviewers (one internal, two international), winter 2021-22, based on the RMC’s artistic research quality criteria “SITRE”.

Album out now

Release June 18th, 2021:  

Jacob Anderskov: SPIRIT OF THE HIVE. Anders Banke, Francesco Bigoni, Calum Builder, Maria Dybbroe, Carolyn Goodwin, Matthias Sigurdsson: clarinets & flutes. Nils Davidsen: cello. Tomo Jacobson, Asger Thomsen: basses. Halym Kim: drums. Jacob Anderskov: composer & conductor.

Recorded at The Village, November 2020. ILK, vinyl + digital. Release supported by KODA Kultur & Kapelmesterforeningen. JA_SOTH_Press_UKJA_SOTH_Press_DK.

Listening to Spirit of the Hive is to perceive the world from the perspective of bats, bees, birds and bugs. How does it feel to be inside the swarm? How does the hive perceive the threats from the outside world – especially those coming from humans? Meanwhile, the album meditates on how the larger patterns emerging from animal behaviour are a constant source of awe and wonder to us. But first of all, the album deals with the close interdependence between these animals and our way of life.
