The Living Room invites the amazing British trumpet player Percy Persglove on stage for his first Denmark visit! http://www.percypursglove.com
The Living Room was formed by saxophonist Torben Snekkestad in 2010.
Consisting of some of the most promising and explorative musicians from the contemporary Nordic music scene, The Living Room converges various sounds and styles of play into a sonically vibrant field: A common ground shared by their curiosity to explore and expand the disciplines of both conventional and unconventional instrumental approaches. Already headlined on a series of remarkable recordings and performances with artists such as Christian Fennesz, Barry Guy, Andrew Cyrille, Paul Lovens, John Taylor and Maja S.K. Ratkje, The Living Room members have each marked their original presence and place on the international music scene. As a collective they form an interlocking unit and have released two albums (The Living Room”Still Distant Still” (2012) & The Living Room + Barry Guy “Live from Literaturhaus” (2015).
Moving effortlessly within compositional frameworks and leaping off into open improvs, thethree like-minded musicians unfold a unique sonic space, creatively, enlivening the living room.
The Living Room have been touring in Scandinavia, Spain, Japan and UK.
Among other they have played at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and performed numerous of concerts with guest musicians such as Nate Wooley, Barry Guy, Paul Lovens and Koichi Makigami.
The second set will feature a very special guest, as the wizardry of Gianluca Elias electro-acoustic treatments and textures will give yet new perspectives to an otherwise solid formation. The Living Room as you have never heard it before. Gianluca Elia as you have never heard him before.
