February 20th-23rd + 27th
Wonderful and wild growing music will flourish in KoncertKirken and the old meatpacking district of Copenhagen during Vinterjazz 2020.
Once again the frontrunners at ILK artist collective and record label has set the scene for an adventurous 4+1 day program. This year primarily at H15-studio - a new intimate venue in the old meatpacking district. During the course of 16 concerts the ILKs will present original music played by special occasion ensembles, original groups and an impressive array of international and local guests including Axel Dörner (DE), Christof Kurzmann (AT), Nina De Heney (SE), Martin Klapper (CZ), Maria Faust (EST), Øyunn (NO), Gianluca Elia & Domen ice Villani (ITA), Egil Kalmann (SE), Ståle Liavik Solberg (NO), Guoste Tamulynaite (FI), Ole Rømer (DK), Lars Andreas Haug (NO), Niklas Fite (SE) a.o. + the ILKs themselves and a few surprises.
The H15-studio space appeals to sonic investigations and several acts will be experimenting with quadrophonia, misc. multispeaker-set-ups and more in the realm of surround-fields.
As a special treat the Sunday 23rd afternoon program holds three short movies created by ILKs in collaboration with different directors and artists. The shorts will be shown at the H15 studio widescreen, high end projector and Turbosound equipment intertwined with live acts.
On February 27th The ILK/BlowOut PULS series 2020 opens with a double concert at KoncertKirken feat: Tamulynaite/Fite/Kalman/Solberg (NO/LT/SE) + Faust/Haug/Bruun (DK/EST/NO)
This is ILK at its best: An unpredictable and intense melting pot of tradition, avantgarde and innovation delivered with a burning love for the music.
Both KoncertKirken and the H15-studio bar offers a great selection of beer, wine and drinks. At the H-15 restaurant you can enjoy an excellent meal before or in-between concerts.
