About the album

Omdrejninger is a project concieved på sound-installation artist Christian Skjødt and composer, and guitarist Mark Solborg aiming at investigating and challenging the listening experience for both musicians and audience. A site-specific work for ensemble, space and loudspeakers. Solborg and Skjødt call it a spatial instrument.

In brief the music consists of composed and improvised pieces played by a handpicked ensem- ble and then processed through a system developed and designed specifically for the project. The system (the patch) can only treat what it recieves from the ensemble and the micro- phones. Delay, enlarge, distort, sample, and geografical displace through the speakers in different patterns and tempi. The audience is placed around the ensemble, the loudspeakers around everybody. An original version of a contemporary and very special listening experience. Another type of communication of relatively abstract music and sound.

The first verison of Omdrejninger was a commission by the Wundergrund festival, premiered in KoncertKirken at Nørrebro. The participants was, besides Skjødt and Solborg, the legendary German trumpetplayer Axel Dörner, cellist Jakob Kullberg, vocalist Michael Rexen and drummer Bjøn Heebøll. It was an intense and unique experience for both audience and musicians.

During Copenhagen Jazzfestival 2015 another edition was brought to life. This time with an explosive combination of Dörner, the Norwegian percussionist Ingar Zach (playing a Gran Cassa!),Solborg and Skjødt.

Both editions where recorded in sound and picture by The Lake Radio, John Fomsgaard, a.o. Then it was processed, mixed and mastered by Solborg and Skjødt in collaboration with true experts within the field. The result is a double 180g vinyl album with two visual rendtions by director and cutter Laurits Flensted-Jensen in video-format with surround sound and a fotomontage with pictures by Petr Ganushkin, Hanne Budtz-Jørgensen and Raphael Frisen- vænge. The release is also available in a reduced version on CD and digitally.
