For en ny generasjon musikkinteresserte ble Khmer en vei inn i jazzen, for ECM ble det en bro fra atmosfæriske lydlandskap inn i en ny verden av beats og elektronika, for Molvær selv plasserte det ham i front av den nye europeiske jazzen – der han blant annet har samarbeidet med Bill Laswell og Sly & Robbie. Nå har plata rukket å bli 25 år, og det er på tide med en feiring av dette perfekte øyeblikket mellom jazzfrihet, pop-estetikk og rock-energi. På scenen har han med seg blant andre Eivind Aarset og Rune Arnesen fra den opprinnelige innspillingen.

WITH THESE HANDS

Jan Bang / Ensemble Modern / Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company and Jacopo Godani

With these hands expresses the overall concept: every evening, a new dialogue will take place between music and dance. The musicians from Ensemble Modern and the dancers from the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company will give each other impulses, developing sounds and movements that will be recorded, processed, altered and reintroduced into the creative flow by Norwegian jazz musician and live electronics artist Jan Bang. The result will be a slowly changing stream of movement and music in which sound and dance become inextricably intertwined.

Ensemble Modern is one of the leading ensembles for contemporary music. It brings together approximately 20 soloists whose diverse origins provide the cultural background for the group’s creative efforts.

Jan Bang is a Norwegian musician and record producer. He is a musical innovator and bridge-builder who has repeatedly succeeded in uniting progressive thought with appealing elements of popular culture.
