New release from Jakob Davidsens Kammerat Orkester
‘Se kunsten med nye ører’, or ‘Lend art your ear’, is the second release from Jakob Davidsens Kammerat Orkester, and the follower to the first Danish Music Award winning CD from 2011.
ʻLend art your earʼ is a project where Jakob Davidsens Kammerat Orkester interprets art. It can be paintings, sculptures, installations, or rooms, and the music can be written-through, lightly sketched, or totally improvised, all according to what the specific piece of art requires. On this release there are artistic reflections originating from two projects at The J. F. Willumsen Museum in Frederikssund, Denmark, and the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen. And then finally a fantasy on Asger Jorns ʻStalingradʼ from Museum Jorn in Silkeborg.
The release can only be bought digitally on itunes and other platforms.
