Drammen Støyscene inviterer til en egen Spessial!
Drammen Støyscene arrangerer konserter der eksperimentell musikk og smalere genre, fremføringer og performance kan oppleves live. Det være seg elektronika, drone-musikk, ambient, dark industry, synth og sequencer-oppbygget lyddesign, spoken word, dans, improvisert støymusikk basert på bearbeidede feltopptak på diy- og ukonvensjonelle instrumenter, freejazz eller harsh noise. Musikken kan oppleves å være i randsonen av det etablerte, kommer gjerne fra undergrunnsmiljøer og åpner for reiser i nye lydlandskaper.
Janne Eraker Ensemble
Janne Eraker og Ivar Grydeleland
* Choreographer and tap dancer Janne Eraker has made the groundbreaking tap dance album Movements for Listening, resulting in a double vinyl released on the Dutch label Esc.Rec and 10 videos documenting each unique track. Out of this project, she developed the Janne Eraker Ensemble. Based on improvisation and scores, Eraker leads a group of exquisite musicians through performance concerts that are equally traditional and contemporary.
The ambition of the album Movements for Listening was to find ways to use tap dance as percussion in a variety of musical styles, genres and collaborations, and to make a state of the art album recording of this. Eraker went to extremes to try different sounds, textures, material, shoes, dynamics, concepts and, of course, rhythms! Sometimes it’ll be hard to know what’s tap dance and what’s not, because the players get so close in timbre, texture and sound. There’s both composed and improvised music, and music that is based on a standard jazz tune, score, groove or melody. There’s tap dance on wood, metal, bubble wrap, sand, in water, with different types of shoes and with bare feet. Eraker plays on a collection of taps hanging from a rack, like a percussionist playing a carillon, and wooden taps bound together in her hands, like a flamenco dancer playing castanets. All of this is also documented in a series of videos, to make it possible to see how the music was created. Eraker has a group of stellar musicians with her on this project: Knut Reiersrud, Ivar Grydeland, Michaela Antalová, Harald Fetveit, Anders Kregnes Hansen, Hans Martin Rundberg Austestad, Juliana Venter, David Arthur Skinner, Roger Arntzen, Vegar Vårdal and Kristoffer Lislegaard. The Dutch artist Daan Botlek is the creator of all the album art, and Morten Minothi Kristiansen makes a documentary video for each recording. The project is supported by Arts and Culture Norway, Performing Arts Hub Norway, and the Norwegian Jazz Forum.
Janne Eraker (1980) is a tap dancer who works full-time as a musician and dance artist in projects in Norway and abroad. Born in Germany and raised in Norway, she moved on to get her dance education in Oslo, Rotterdam and New York. Also her dancing has many roots, starting with Balkan folk dances, swinging by competition dancing, musicals, contemporary and modern dance, and now fermenting all of it into her tap dancing. Eraker is fascinated by the sound of tap dance, and has worked a long time to create music with it. Her work spans from improvised concerts to choreographed dance pieces, collaborating with a wide range of artists. In the electronic duo Øy and the performance installation Tap Noir her tap dance triggers samples, sounds and light via contact microphones on the floor. She has also "played" the full size organ of Stavanger Concert House via wireless microphones attached to her shoes. In 2022 she released her first album Gol Variations with the trio One Small Step. The album Movements for Listening is her biggest project to date. Next to this, she dances in the Sebastian Weber Dance Company in Germany.
"She's an iconoclast creating original, innovative tap dances in a wholly unique way." David Parker, The Bang Group
"...undoubtedly Norwegian jazz' most exquisite tap dancer..." Audun Vinger, NTT

* aka Geir Opdal jobber med eksperimentell, mørk ambient. Landskapene han skaper består ofte av store, dype droner som bakteppe, figurert med mindre og større figurer i front. Konvensjonell rytmikk og tonalitet er noe han anser som farger på sin soniske palett før enn noe å følge slavisk. På denne måten maler han frem utenomjordiske landskap hvor forskjellige scener og historier kan utspilles. Før oppstarten av sin musikalske karriere, jobbet Geir Opdal som billedkunstner med maleri og tegning som hovedmedium. Mye av sine musikalske prinsipper og ideer har sitt utspring i tiden som billedkunstner. Han beskriver således ofte sin musikalske metode som lydmaling.
