THE GEORDIE APPROACH
The Geordie Approach
Petter Frost Fadnes: saxophone and electronics, Chris Sharkey: guitar and electronics, Ståle Birkeland: drums and electronics
The Geordie Approach is a collaboration between the two Norwegian musicians Petter Frost Fadnes and Ståle Birkeland, teamed up with guitarist Chris Sharkey, a Geordie born and bred.
This uncompromising and experimental trio pursues music within loose improvisational structures, adding a surprisingly broad range of flavours to their overall sound world. Their creative ideas grow within a large and open musical ‘space’, and the trio has a reputation for adapting and utilizing their performance space in an extremely effective and engaging manner. In their untiring quest for brilliant and unusual musical destinations – Birkeland, Frost Fadnes and Sharkey produce musical elements that often are contradictory in shape, moving between melody and noise, ambient grooves and abstract textures.
Dave Kane and Alex Bonney’s improvising duo is full of surprises. Traditional roles of trumpet and double bass are exploded and the sonic potential of their instruments is explored. The duo’s action packed and playful range of textures and dynamics combine with a strong melodic sensibility and an uncanny interplay between the two musicians.
“Never did I think such fascinating complication and sly humour and sheer joie de vivre could be conjured from a double bass and a pocket trumpet.” Telegraph
” In my opinion Alex and Dave play true music. Played at a very high level, it’s as good as any improvised music played any where in the world”
“Mixing energetic free improv with quirky melodies and lopsided rhythms Kane and Bonney’s interaction was mesmerizing, packed full of innate humour and off hand virtuosity their dialogue was a joy to behold.”Jazzwise
