Dan Peter Sundland


Elevenette is Dan peter sundlands debut album.
Release: 6. december 2013

Four classical musicians and seven improvising musicians meet through Sundland's compositions, in an intersection of poems and music, of composition and improvisation. The poems are picked from english language poets, and vocalist Emilie Nicolas Kongshavn's delicate but clear performance of these is the red thread running through the album. The music moves effortlessly through rich orchestrations, open improvisations and delicate chamber sounds through Sundland's overarching musical vision and personal compositional style.
