1 - ALVARET ENSEMBLE, THE -& FRIENDS- - SKEYLJA - (CD) 
DENOVALI


"Skeylja" An invented word combining the Frisian word for Terschelling, "Skylge", and the Icelandic word for island, "Eyjan"Skeylja is an international multimedia project, based around the ideas of improvisational music and the coming together of musicians from different countries and musical backgrounds to create a spontaneous sonic landscape. The project started when The Alvaret Ensemble travelled to Iceland to try to find a shared music language with the Icelandic musicians Ingi Gardar Erlendsson, Kira Kira, Borgar Magnason and Eirikur Orri Olafsson . They were joined by the 33 1/3 Collective, a group of visual artists from the Netherlands, who began to collect footage that would later be used as source material for the visual side of the performance.Some months later, after a successful week of traveling to beautiful locations and playing music together, the group met again, this time during the Oerol festival on the island of Terschelling in the Netherlands, for a series of nine sold-out shows in an old church, all of which were being recorded. Each artist "curated" a rough plan for one evening, which could be anything from hand-drawn images to be interpreted musically to more precise plans of structures and combinations of musicians to be explored. Never were the notes, or the content of the music itself, discussed - this was instead left up to chance and developed through listening intently to each-other, trying to create an atmosphere where each player was vital, but where everyone always worked towards the whole. Participating musicians (in alphabetical order):Ingi Gardar Erlendsson (Tuba, Trombone, Thranophone)Greg Haines (Piano)Kira Kira (Voice, Electronics)Jan Kleefstra (Voice, Poems)Romke Kleefstra (Guitar)Borgar Magnason (Contrabass)Eirkur Orri Olafsson (Trumpet, Electronics)Sytze Pruiksma (Percussion)
