Vinyl & CD release on IMPORTANT RECORDS


Despite an age difference of 51 years, Else Marie Pade and Jacob Kirkegaard speak a similar musical language and are prominent listeners and communicators of sounds that would otherwise remain indiscernible. For the first time these two pioneers are collaborating on a new work: “Svævninger” investigates the variations that can be perceived when sound waves collide. Both artists have previously worked on this phenomenon; Jacob Kirkegaard in his work “Labyrinthitis” (2007) and Else Marie Pade in her work "Faust Suite" (1962). For their new joint piece, “Svævninger”, they combined some of Pade’s early (and hitherto unreleased) sound experiments with some of Kirkegaard’s recordings from his own ear, thus leading the audience straight into the undiscovered labyrinths of their own hearing
