Pontoppidan/Greg – Voice, Live electronics and double bass

Randi Pontoppidan – SOLO

With nothing but her voice and live electronics, Danish vocalist, composer and improviser Randi Pontoppidan creates vast sonic landscapes full of organic warmth and poetic sensibility. She invites the listener deeper into the personal sonic world of her voice. Her work draws on inspirations ranging from free jazz and electroacoustic composition to sound poetry.

My first solo album will be released in the beginning of 2019

Trio: Simon Toldam, Thomas Agergaard, Randi Pontoppidan

 LIFT

Sissel Vera Pettersen: voice, live electronics                               Randi Pontoppidan: voice, live electronics

Lift is an experimental, improvising and imaginative mini-ensemble, The two women share a common yearning to explore the multitude of timbral resources of the human voice and to engender a musical space without any recourse to any other musical instruments. The use of loop machines and the live manipulation of the voice contribute to the result that the soundscapes vary from the entirely near and intimately acoustic to a world of ambient sounds and hypnotic beats. The duo’s repertoire consists of original compositions and free improvisation.Inspiration comes from many different streams of influence: pygmy-songs, noise, joik, vocalise, human beat-box, Scandinavian hymns, jazz and the whole cache of everyday songs we have around us, which we might not always be listening to ….

Lift`s highly original sound have led to collaborations with dancers, performers and video artists such as Morten Carlsen, Stuart Lynch and Bo Madvig. Lift is also touring extensively in Norwegian and Danish schools with Rikskonsertene.

As a natural continuation of the project “Saariho and Other Gardens, singer Randi Pontoppidan, flutist Jennifer Dill and I continue our work mixing composed pieces with improvisations.

”We have worked with this mix of composed and improvised music on several occasions, and find that it creates a very special quality of presence. The “here and now” of the impro-parts influences the performance of the composed pieces, the deep concentration and precision of the solo-pieces helps to structure the improvisations.
From our experience, the audience is involved in what we are doing from the first sound to the last, and leaves the concert hall with the feeling of having lived something unique.”
