Axel Dörner & Flamingo #111
Start time: 20:00
- 1st set: Axel Dörner
Axel Dörner has for the past 20 years developed a large vocabulary of techniques and sounds, combined into a highly personal language.
- 2nd Set: Flamingo (Chris Heenan, Adam Pultz Melbye & Christian Windfeld)
Flamingo explores sound, texture and dynamics. Sometimes verging on the threshold of hearing and at other times engaging in dense layers and waves of sound, Flamingo creates a poetic space in which pure sound phenomena step forth on the eternal backdrop of silence. Flamingo has performed at festivals and venues throughout Denmark and Germany and will release its debut vinyl on Barefoot Records in early 2016, followed by tours in Europe and the US.
Chris Heenan (US) has developed a formidable solo voice on his wind instruments, where he uses extended techniques, often incorporating multiphonics with surprising results, to reveal the subtleties inherent to the instrument. Some of his many projects include Splitter Orchestra, Trigger, Pivot and a duo with Michael Vorfeld.
Adam Pultz Melbye is a regular presence on the Berlin scene for improvisation, often working with dance. Regular projects include the bands LUBB, Angel, the electronic duo Toggle, a duo with dancer Akemi Nagao and solo performances. His work is oriented towards exploring the textural and resonant possibilities of the double bass.
Århus-based Christian Windfeld is currently on the prestigious two-year "Young Elite" grant from the Danish Arts Council and tours internationally as a solo performer and in various constellations.
