The love of sculpting sounds, melodies and pulses, makes this duo a visceral and buoyant soundscape.

Mon16Jul2018Pre-order is up for Space Geode!The duo Event Horizon, has put on their crash helmets, and set theircourse for a strato-stream in deep space.Vocalist Randi Pontoppidan and bassist Greg Cohen are explorers.The nature of Space Geode is simple. Better Living thru improvisation.This recording was done without preparation or intention.Only the simple motivation of believing in the others ability to divehead first into deep space. This all occurred one November day.In a room that was once the headquarters for East Berlin radio called The Funkhaus, Berlin.Most of the recording was done in the dark. So space was all around us.When there was an overdub, it was done without preconception.Immediately after the improvisation, it was decided to add another track,without hearing what we had just played.So this musical statement is a rough, true and direct representation of what the nature of our duo is.Laurie Anderson wrote about the album: Ethereal

The Nephilim Ensemble v/ Joel illerhag:
Denne aften skaber rum til fordybelse. Den anerkendte kontrabassist Joel Illerhag vil fortrylle os med toner, der med følsomhed og indlevelse inviterer dig til at udforske menneskelivets store spørgsmål i musikkens åndelige rum: kærlighed, død og kampen for at finde lyset i mørket. Alle dele vil have en plads denne aften, hvor vi vil søge nærværet for at finde lys og følgeskab i glæden, sorgen, underskuddet eller overskuddet.
