    3 Concerts - Johanna Sulkunen & Randi Pontoppidan

    20:30

    Klub Primi, Halmtorvet 15, Copenhagen

    20:30 Johanna Elina Sulkunen & Randi Pontoppidan DUO 

    Acoustic investigations of what voice can do — no loops or machines, just bare and naked vocal improvisation(s). With different backgrounds and approaches to music-making, they share a common understanding of the communication and improvisation, and a deep love for constant investigation for their instruments. The two vocalists have worked together in different constellations for the past years. Now they are ready for their debut concert! Intimate, explosive, emotional, and everything in between!  

    21:30  Randi Pontoppidan + IKI

    IKI består af fem kvinder fra Norge, Finland og Danmark. Sammen arbejder de med deres vokaler som bærende instrumenter og improvisationen som kunstnerisk redskab. Ved brug af maskiner og pedaler manipulerer de deres egne stemmer live på scenen. Musikken, som opstår i et dragende her-og-nu-øjeblik sammen med publikum, spænder over trancelignende soundscapes til ulmende avantgarde-beats og -strukturer.

    Kahina Orchestra' are an ensemble with vocals, wind and string instruments. The music is open, improvised and based on compositional ideas by Johanna Sulkunen and Randi Pontoppidan. Improvisation is their primary tool for composition and they will create a net of sounds, and stories by compositional ideas and big soundscapes. 

    The focus points are sound and communication

     

     ‘Kahina’ is an Arabic title meaning “prophetess” or “seer” or “witch”.

    She is said to have had supernatural powers, which enabled her to foretell

    the future. 'Kahina' is also a word in Finnish standing for a rustling,

    whining sound.
