We are joined by composer/creator and singer Qarin Wikström. Qarin has worked on a big variety of projects; ranging from 'Shitney' to 'Sekten' to 'Kostcirkeln' to theater work, and, recently, her outstanding solo album 'Up up Up'. We speak about the difference of working and composing in collaboration vs. working all alone, on using electronics to enhance sound possibilities, and releasing music in a multitude of formats.
Peter Bruun, the fantastic drummer and composer, joins us to speak about his new album: 'all too human - because you're worth it'. Peter explains what rhythmical concepts are behind the pieces on this LP, but also how they transformed his idea of composing nowadays. We also speak about how long this project was in the making, how much effort Peter and his band 'all too human' put into it and how the very special vinyl release with the magical mirror came into being.
Asger Thomsen joins us! He is a prolific Bassist that plays all sort of improvised music and has developed a fascinating sound on his instrument with various preparations. We speak about his music; his entrance to the CPH scene; his various records; how 'new' and useful recordings can be; and the potential future of live streaming concerts.
Sylvie Courvoisier is a master Swiss pianist based in NYC. This is a recording from a talk I had with her before the concert she gave during Freedom Music Festival vol. 3 in Copenhagen in 2017.

In this episode we talk with drummer, composer, bandleader and creator of the mondayband, Halym Kim; and saxophonist, composer, bandleader and co-leader of the mondayband, Storm D'Angelo. We chat about the band, about music, about the Copenhagen scene and how it welcomed these two young artists. Mandagsklubben is now unfortunately closed and with it, the mondayband disappeared. But this episode was recorded while it was still going strong and seemed like an immovable object and part of the Copenhagen scene.
In this episode we talk with T.S Høeg: a multi instrumentalist, composer, writer and story teller. This episode covers great stories such as why the punk scene wanted him dead; what games he plays with Kresten Osgood and friends; how the Copenhagen scene developed and evolved over the years.
