Klas Nevrins Revoid Ensemble's consists of eight prestigious improvisational musicians from Norway, Sweden and the United States. It is also the core of an ongoing research project carried out at KMH, supported by the Swedish Research Council.
On October 25 the ensemble gives a concert with a CD release in Nathan Milsteinsalen, one of the newly inaugurated concert halls at KMH's new campus in Stockholm.
In their cooperation and research the ensemble blends together a great variety of acoustic and electronic sounds, creating a rich dynamic range.
It also involves abnormal intonations, inspired by among others balafon- and gamelan tunings and influences from composers like Terry Riley, Charles Ives and Ben Johnston. Overlays of tempo and rubato is another hallmark, a "disorderly order" that can create interesting pathways for rhythmic interaction.
The modular compositions (all by Klas Nevrin) always include collective improvisation, but in sometimes unexpected ways. Precomposed materials are e.g. designed so that it offers musicians new ways to create ambiguity and interact with each other.
- Improvisational events can say a lot about our expectations and valuations, whether it be music, education or any other context, says Klas Nevrin.
- We examine how various forms of order and disorder are related to each other. We discuss ethical meanings of collective creation also outside the music, and we also at how non-hierarchical interpersonal relationships can be played out while curiously exploring together.
