Night Repair

It’s a drizzly but warm morning in Copenhagen when we head over the the creative district known as “Nørrebro“. Having just arrived the morning before, jet lag had us up for hours in the middle of the night. Time we used to prep for our doc shoot in Malmö later that week. We met up with the guys first at a local coffee shop. Martin Stender, composer and sax player, Jeppe Skoubakke double bassist, and Henrik Olsson their electric guitarist. Tucked away in the back room, we opened up the floor to discuss creativity and culture. The Danes seemed very open to music as a profession – or even to changing professions part way through your life. The creative freedom that this cultural tendency allows is exemplified in the music. It’s exploratory in nature. Some of the melodies and rhythms are incredibly alluring and comfortable. And, as is often the case with exploration, some of the sounds push the limits of that comfort, providing a key contrast, a moment of challenge to the other melodies. Martin talked about how integral it is to ensure that you are always getting back to the physical response you have to music – letting your body experience the sounds and response accordingly – however that comes out. So, in the spirit of making you move, here is one of their songs “Stone House”.
