BUGGE WESSELTOFT / HENRIK SCHWARZ / DAN BERGLUND
Union Chapel, London.
INNERVISIONS FESTIVAL 2018
BUGGE WESSELTOFT - HENRIK SCHWARZ - DAN BERGLUND
When some collaborations occur, it feels like Fate has been paying close attention, planning something special. On one hand: Bugge Wesseltoft, pianist, composer and pioneer of electronic jazz; on the other: Henrik Schwarz, one of the most sought after producers of electronic music who has remixed stars from Michael Jackson to Ane Brun. Add Esbjörn Svensson Trio bass maestro Dan Berglund into the mix and you have something totally unique.
Bugge explains: " We are creating music on the spot, both live and in the studio. With today’s electronic tools you can really improvise with them, and Henrik is so clever with his stuff - he makes amazing music from scratch. He is doing a really kind of mellow playing, which is great because we can make this spontaneous kind of music together."
Henrik adds: "The music that is coming out of this sounds very, very new and unheard to me - there is a lot to explore in the future. We have a concept when we sit down. So we know it's all different, but there's a certain kind of frame for everything. There's a starting point.”
