Can you tell us about your new album?
A: Spectral Entanglements is the debut album of the trio Meinild/Anderskov/Tom. We found a specific way to navigate free improvisations. We lean into the spectral structure of the sound, listening for overtones, intervalic structures and textures. We all try to push and pull this structure creating a kind of feedback system, where all the sounds are entangled. This approach isn’t thought out, it turned out that from our first gig.
What other projects are you currently involved with?
A: I have the album Third Nature with the quartet Ocean Fanfare coming out later this year. It is with Tomasz Dabrowski (Trumpet), Richard Andersson (Bass) and Peter Bruun (Drums). I also have a saxophone quintet named Sidechains with Maria Dybbroe, Martin Stender, Henrik Pultz Melbye and Francesco Bigoni. Besides playing I am also part of the label collective Barefoot Records, as well as organiser of a small festival called Elektronisk Solskin in the countryside outside of Copenhagen.
What are you currently listening to and what was the last CD or download you bought?
A: The last CD i bought was The Art of Playing the Fantasia an EWI concerto by Anders Lauge Meldgaard. I can really recommend it, and the rest of his work.
What is your all-time favourite album and why?
A: A Rainbow in Curved Air by Terry Riley. It opened up so many doors for me. For some reason I got to know the B-Side Poppy Nogood first, and it really blew my mind. There are a lot of interesting composers coming out of the scene around San Fransisco Tape Music Center.
Who has caught your attention recently that we should be listening out for?
A: There is a lot of good things happening in the Copenhagen scene. Last year I have been really inspired by the sounds of Anne Efternøler, Carolyn Goodwyn, Sarah Buchner, Oda Dyrnes, Ying- Hsueh Chen among others. I really like electronic music, and I think Egil Kalman is really doing some great work in the experimental ambient field, playing microtonal folklore tunes.
