Lyden af Nordjylland


Lyden af Nordjylland – The Sound of Northern Jutland – began as a collaboration between drummer/composer Thomas Albæk Jakobsen and sound artist Morten Poulsen. 

Initially, the process of this project was as following: 1) Morten Poulsen went to specific parts of Northern Jutland to gather audio recordings and 2) an ensemble subsequently performed acoustic concerts at these locations inspired by the recordings, together with electronic manipulations of the chosen sound recordings.

The ensemble consisted of:

Thomas Albæk Jakobsen – drums and compositions

Morten Poulsen – live electronics

Marius Ungureanu (RO) – bratsch

Francisco Vila (US) – cello

Jakob Mygind – tenor saxophone

Later, these trips and recordings was gathered to produce new visual and auditory representations of Northern Jutland.
