Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2019
Aram Shelton/Christian Rønn Duo
Aram Shelton og Christian Rønn startede deres samarbejde i 2018 mens Shelton stadig boede i København og sammen fik de relativt hurtigt lavet albummet “Multiring” som udgives til efteråret på det amerikanske label Astral Spirits”. De resulterende 6 stykker musik på albummet er drevet af en ret minimal æstetik og bærer et stærkt præg af at være skabt i den specielle atmosfære i Rønn´s studie i udkanten af København.
Aram Shelton is an American saxophonist and composer who plays with a distinct, harmonically rich sound and develops musical thoughts through constant motion, tonal shifts and complex sounds alongside clear melodic and rhythmic constructs. His vocabulary utilizes the range of extended techniques including multiphonics, harmonics, circular breathing, wind sounds and an exploration of the outer ranges of the instrument. He is known for his contributions to the creative music scenes in Chicago and San Francisco. His writing and playing has been documented through more than two dozen albums on labels including Delmark, Clean Feed, Cuneiform, Not Two and Singlespeed Music. He has worked closely with the likes of Larry Ochs, Kyle Bruckmann, Kjell Nordeson, Jason Adasiewicz, Josh Berman, Weasel Walter, Tim Daisy, Jason Ajemian and Fred Lonberg-Holm.
Christian Rønn is a Danish composer and performer working within electronic music, freeform and soundart in the greyzone areas where sound breaks up and transforms into something else in order to give an experience of transcendence and a journey beyond language. His current practice explores instrumental playing in the area between freeform and fixed composition via electronics and electroacoustics. Releases on Escho, Insula, Resipiscent (US), Kid Recordings (US), and many more. Collaborators/co-performers include Ikue Mori, Rhyse Chatham, Peter Peter, P.O. Jørgens, Lotte Anker, Ingrid Chavez, Bob Bellerue; concerts in Europe, the Middle-east, Japan, the US; and residencies at EMS (Stockholm), Worm Tonstudio (Rotterdam), IAC (Malmö) and Studio Acusticum in Piteå (Sverige).
