Film Music in the Making

film music

About a month ago we had the great pleasure of joining forces with the film director Johan Knattrup Jensen, as a part of a project called Film Music in the Making. We spent one day improvising music over his film “Verdenssøn”, and the day was documented in the form of a documentary that will be shown at the CPH PIX festival, 17/04, at Cinemateket in Copenhagen. You can read more about the project here. The film viewing is free, so you’re all invited!

It was an amazing project to be part of, and we’re very excited to see the end result!

The documentary will also be shown on television, 23/04, 21:40 at DR K.

Love,
IKI

A return from VossaJazz and a return to Århus

IKI @ VossaJazz
(source: vossajazz.no)

We have just returned from VossaJazz, and can only say that Norway continues to be one of our favourite places to play! We had a concert with an incredible audience, which turned the entire event into a great experience. We also had some great experiences being the audience, especially at Sidsel Endresen and Stian Westerhus’ concert. It gave us a lot of inspiration that we’re happy to bringing with us home.

Next up in IKI land we’re going to Århus on the 4th of April, to play at Studenterhuset. We haven’t been in Århus since SPOT last year, so it will be great to come back to the city and to Jutland! You can read more about the concert here, which will be together with Valby Vokalgruppe And remember to keep an eye on our concert page. There’s a lot of exciting things in store.

Until next time,
IKI

IKI at the Candy Factory, upcoming concerts and a video

The fall has arrived in Copenhagen with full force, but that doesn’t mean IKI’s slowing down!

Yesterday we spent the evening in Bolsjefabrikken (Candy Factory), playing for a wonderful crowd of people, together with Tanya Davis (see her beautiful video How To Be Alone here) and Sam Saylor (who does a fantastic version of Spice Girl’s Wannabe!). It was a genuine pleasure to be there.

This Saturday, 11/10, we’re playing at the Impra Festival in Huset i Magstræde in CPH, at 21:00. And on the 24th of November we’re playing at Danish Music Award Jazz (link) at Jazzhouse! Naturally we had a blast at the DMA last year (oh, the memories) and we’re really looking forward to coming back this year, this time as performers.

And to finish of things our TEDxCPH performance is now online on youtube. So lean back and enjoy!

A little youtube surprise from Iceland

Yesterday we got an email from one of our Finnish friends, Samu, who had been to our concert in Iceland this summer, in Fríkirkjan. And he had recorded our final song and put it up on youtube.

The song in question was one of those that we all had quite a strong memory of, but that we thought we’d never get to hear, so it was such a delight to actually be able to see it and hear it. So thank you, Samu!

Our next gig is at the Bothanical Garden in Copenhagen, on the 12th of October, as a part of the Culture Night. We play at about 20:30 in the palm house. The theme of this year’s “Kulturnat” in the Garden is Light Festival, and what could be better when the nights are getting longer and colder? You can read more about it here.

And last, but not least: There were some before & after the talk shots taken at TEDxCopenhagen, by Johanne Fick. They’re quite beautiful and you can see them all here or have a sneakpeak down below.

Until next time, love from us,
Guro // IKI

TEDxCopenhagen

What a week it has been, and yet it only just started.

Yesterday we performed at TEDxCopenhagen, being a part of a line-up of truly inspirational people who love what they’re doing. It was so much fun getting to sing for an audience who listened with every little piece of themselves. Thank you to the speakers and to the team behind the conference!

And if you haven’t heard about TED before take a look at the video below, because it is great.

(Fun fact: The lovely Louise From, who animated our music video Quisanadolele, also made the illustrations for TEDxCopenhagen!)

Next up we’re playing at the Bothanical Gardens in Copenhagen on the 12th of October, for “Kulturnatten”. Hope to see you there!
