21 years old Ea Wim is rare kind of female neoclassical composer and singer. With inspiration in the classical tradition and Nordic folk songs, she composes for piano and strings and adds her unique vocals and a lyrical identity-seeking universe. The scene of neoclassical music is largely devoid of female representatives, and in Eas’s category, she is completely unique.
The first single ‘Han Kommer Ind” (‘He Enters The Room”) is from Ea’s upcoming debut album and is written only for piano and vocals.
Gender awareness and aesthetics are an important part of Ea’s expression. On the recordings her ensemble consists of female musicians only and when they perform live, they have a male dancer with them on stage. It has been crucial in her choice of teammates to reverse the stereotypes.
Ea comes up with something very special – by virtue of her talent, her voice, her reflection and her choice of genre. She is one of the infinitely few female artists who make herself in the field of neoclassical, writing and performing her lyrical neoclassical music herself.
With support from Danish national radio stations P8 Jazz and P2 on the previously released singles , the new female cross-over jazz duo KALEIIDO has set sail on a journey into unknown soundscapes of jazz.
KALEIIDO is made up by guitarist Anna Roemer and saxophonist Cecilie Strange. The two musicians have joined forces in a common musical vision – to create music that moves in time, space and place.
Together they transcend their respective roots and strive to create sound collages that changes at each tone like sunshine in a kaleidoscope. The music never moves back to a fixed starting point but pushes forward in the borderline of ambient and jazz.
Debut album is VOYAGE is released today and on the recordings they have invited the absolute elite of Copenhagen based jazz musiscians, here amongst Ander Christensen on bass, Jakob Høter on drums, Kaspet Tranberg on trumpet and Stine Steendorph on vocal effects.
With three neoclasssical EP’s on his back, Eik Octobre is now taking a new exciting step in a new direction on his coming EP ‘Simple Circles’. The first single released is ‘Falling Apart into Someone New’ which is a warm sounding fusion between the ambient and the classical, combing strings and piano with beats and synths.
On Eik Octobre’s earlier EP releases he has combined solo piano pieces with recordings that also had ambient touches, but not as full blown as he dares this time.
Eik has achieved great succes with both his solo piano pieces as well as with his more ambient sounding recordings from several of his releases and has more than 15. mio streams across platforms. The piano is his main instrument for composing and recording, but his drive to constantly evolve and create new soundscapes reaches a new high on the coming single and EP.
