I have posted a few videos on my project page for the pendulum studies that I am working on to explore how the physics of a pendulum can be used to generate music.

 

I will play a series of concerts during the spring of 2012 entitled ‘hammond dialogues’, engaging many different musicians playing instruments not usually heard accompanying the hammond organ. Performances will be based on improvisation and the aim is to put myself in situations where I can explore the new sonic and instrumental possibilities that occur when meeting these different instruments and personalities. See the calendar for exact dates, which will include duo performances with musicians such as Nils Henrik Asheim on church organ, Sidsel Endresen on vocals, Kresten Osgood on drums, and with a string trio consisting of Lene Grenager on cello, Bergmund Skaslien on Viola, Michael Duch on contrabass, and a wind trio with Rudi Mahall on bass clarinet, Bjørnar Habbestad on flute and Eirik Hegdal on saxophone.

 

Kobert’s last and final recording “Off the Hook” is now released on Øra fonogram. It is available as digital download on iTunes and also as a very limited special edition CD that can be bought by contacting me directly.

 

A new recording by Solid featuring Seamus Blake on saxophone is now out on parallel records.
Available on CD now, and in addition to the usual mp3 on iTunes and such it will also be possible to buy hi-res downloads  from gubemusic.com
