Koncerts // Splashgirl

16.09.16 @ 21.00

Splashgirl ir trio no Norvēģijas, kas izveidojis savu žanru – drone jazz.

Viņiem raksturīgā tumšā instrumentācija sakņojas džeza un improvizētajā mūzikā, bet tajā manāmas arī ambient, post-rock un elektroniskās mūzikas ietekmes. Viņu mūzika ir niansēm bagāta, ar spēcīgu dzinēju, kas ved klausītāju hipnotiskā un transcendētālā noskaņā.

Savus pēdējos 3 albumus Splashgirl izdevis, sadarbojoties ar producentu Randall Dunn (Earth/Sunn O)))/Marissa Nadler), kas rezultējies atpazīstamībā arī ārpus Norvēģijas robežām. Grupa ar lieliem panākumiem koncertējusi Eiropā, Japānā un Amerikā.
Splashgirl sadarbojusies arī ar Eyvind Kang, Sidsel ENdresen, Punkt, Stian Westerhus, Elifantree, Mari Kvien Brunvoll un daudziem citiem.
Grupa sastāv no 3 Norvēģijā pieprasītiem un augsti atzītiem mūziķiem, kas nereti sadarbojas ar tādiem māskliniekiem kā Nils Petter Molvaer, Susanna, Hanne Kolsto, Mariam the Believer.

Splashgirl is a Norwegian piano trio that established their own genre – drone jazz – through five highly acclaimed albums.
Their personal dark instrumentals are rooted in jazz and improvised music, but with ambient, post-rock and electronic music seamlessly weaved into the mix. Their music is open and rich in detail with a powerful engine pushing the music slowly forward with a hypnotic drive and transcendental potential.

Splashgirls collaboration with producer Randall Dunn (Earth/Sunn O))))/Marissa Nadler) on their lastest three albums have gained them increasingly international attention, resulting in concerts throughout Europe, Japan and in the US, as well as rave reviews from all over the globe.

Other collaborators include Eyvind Kang, Sidsel Endresen, Punkt, Stian Westerhus, Elifantree, Mari Kvien Brunvoll to mention a few.

The bands line-up comprises three highly sought after musicians from the creative Norwegian music scene, where they frequently joins forces with the likes of Nils Petter Molvær, Susanna, Hanne Kolstø, Mariam the Believer and others.

Jo Berger Myhre – double bass, moog bass
Andreas Stensland Løwe – piano, keyboards
Andreas Lønmo Knudsrød – drums, electronics

“Captivating and mesmerising. (…) Another fine album from Splashgirl; their successful run continues…” 4,5/5 All About Jazz
“An album to play again and again, Hibernation makes a persuasive case for the seemingly unlikely proposition that dolorous soundscapes can be positively uplifting.” 4/5 Jazz Journal
