Now You See It…
In 2012, Danish artist Bjørn Ignatius Øckenholt made a wonderful live-drawing inspired by one of my songs from the album The Speed of Why with Chris Lavender. (see video below) He put the video on his Facebook page as an invitation of sorts or maybe more like a glove waiting to be picked up. This summer, 2013, Bjørn Ignatius Øckenholt was guest staring Martin Fabricius TRIO at Copenhagen Jazzfestival and we have just had our first duo performance together.
I have a strong feeling we will share the stage again sometime soon.
In 2011 I was asked to write a piece of music to a Henry Heerup work of my own choice. I chose the photographer. At the opening i brought my camera and photographed the audience as they listened to my music seated in front of the sculpture or taking pictures themselves… this caused for a wonderful confusion: who exactly was the artist, the audience, the sculpture, the work, the performer the photographer?
