Gopler og andre Urovækkende Fænomener

”Gopler og andre Urovækkende Fænomener” is a special edition – a vinyl with a 12 page booklet only printet in 350 pieces.
Music by Pernille Bévort and illustrations by Jeppe Grangaard.
This release is the result of several years of cooperation and mutual inspiration between the two makers.
The music is created as a DIY-project, where saxophonist Pernille Bévort mixes her many wind instruments with field recordings and once in a while also mixes it with beats.
It’s a sort of sound-poem–universe complimented by a strong graphic aspect.
It is released on vinyl to celebrate the texture and warm acoustic sound of vinyl, the sounds of wood and air through instruments, and to have the advantage of the big cover and booklet format – the feeling when you touch and handle the physical vinyl – unpack, unfold, smell, hear the crackling paper – in other words the whole experience of sensing.
The release contains our acoustic and graphical imprint of impressions and it reflects our mutual inspiration. Large brushstrokes and sometimes alarming sounds as omens of impending destruction or just a slightly disturbed presence in life mixed with joyful wonder.
Acoustical and visual fragments of a diary.

Welcome to my website

Welcome to my website. Here you can find all sorts of informations about me.
I mostly write in English here – since music is a language without boarders.
If you are interested in my biography in Danish you can visit “Biography Wikipedia (Dk)” and also find my Danish CV under “Press”. Several reviews are also in Danish or even Swedish/Norwegian.
Enjoy.

Live on Swedish Radio once again

Live Jazz, Swedish Radio P2.
For the second time this year I can be heard in a live recording from Sweden. Last time it was as part of Bohuslän Big Band with Maria Schneider.
This time it’s as part of Swedish drummer/bandleader/composer Calle Rasmussons 10 piece ensemble “Roots”. I had the great pleasure of playing 2 concerts with them in Halmstad Friday and Saturday (may 18th and 19th).
The concert on Friday evening in Halmstad Teaters Festsal was recorded live by Swedish Radio. The concerts starts 1:58 in this broadcasting. We were part of the big Swedish jazz gathering in Halmstad with important meetings and a big Jazz Galla Concert as well. Very fine music. It will only be possible to listen to within the next 30 days.

Reviews of the concerts with Maria Schneider and Bohuslän Big Band

Review of the concert in Malmø 12. oct. 2017. By Christer Nilsson, Orkesterjournalen.
A little quote in Swedish: “Men det finns många andra strålande solister i BBB. Inte minst kända danska Pernille Bevort, med ett tenorlir som skulle imponerat på Joe Lovano”
