HOLM celebrates a meeting between five international musicians who work and live in Denmark and abroad. The contemplative nature at the core of the project is about enhancing the emotional side of perceiving music and sounds. Improvisation, repetition, timbre, lyrical composition and interplay combine to create music that has a significant visual quality and leads the listener to a meditative state of mind. Two cellos, two saxophones and a double bass provide a unique and organic spectrum of sounds within a completely acoustic frame.
HOLM will be released as a 12” LP in June 2018, on the Danish label Insula Music. The ensemble will be on tour in Europe in July 2018.
Roberto Bordiga is a bass player and composer based in Copenhagen. His experience as a performer is wide, but in recent years his focus has been on solo double bass performance and composing for small ensembles such as HOLM and Roberto Bordiga Quintet.

Before moving to Denmark he had an intense activity as a session player, in Italy and abroad, where he had the chance to share the stage with highly acclaimed musicians such as: Stefano Battaglia (ECM), Francesco Bearzatti, Walter Beltrami, Emanuele Maniscalco (ECM), Fausto Beccalossi (Al Di Meola), Paolo Birro (head of the jazz department at the Conservatorio Arrigo Pedrollo), Francesco Bigoni, Markku Ounaskari (ECM).
