Polychrome Presents: År & Dag and the Copenhagen Clarinet Choir17/09/22, 4pm - 11pm
År & Dag is a Copenhagen based collective led by four composers: Andreas Pallisgaard, Mads Forsby, Anders Lauge Meldgaard, and Michael Mørkholt. Each of the four members has an independent practice as a musician/composer, working with instrument-building, computer programming, live improvisation, and notated composition.
Copenhagen Clarinet Choir is a new music ensemble that creates sonic landscapes through improvisation, using open scores as a starting point. Their debut album ’Organism’ explores various kinetic phenomena found in the natural environment, such as the flocking of birds, swarming of bees and sub-aquatic movement. The result is a profound timbral symbiosis, sculpted by the nuances of the clarinet.
Polychrome was initiated by Jason Dungan and Maria Zahle in 2020, commissioning projects and residencies, working directly with musicians and artists to support the production of new works and live events at the Polychrome space – a project room which is also part of a family home. The events use the project room, the kitchen, and the garden, creating a very social, open space for the experience of music and art.
4pm: Polychrome & Black Tower DJs
