Angel

ANGEL has within the last 3 years established themselves as one of the most strongest bands on the Danish scene for free improvised music. Listening to the music of Danish/Norwegian Angel, one is challenged with the task of defining the music within any given style. Combining the uncompromising and investigative approach of free improvisation with the energy, physicality and sheer loudness of metal in a more or less acoustic context, Angel is uncovering new territory in improvised music. From subtle pointillism and sonic manipulations to head-on massacre, Angel plays exciting music with a strong sense of purpose, pushing the limit of each instrument. The result is an honest and pure music that will question any preconceptions about art in general and music in particular. The 3 musicians are some of the most exciting and dedicated improvisers on the Danish jazz scene, and have gained recognition through collaborations with artist such as Peter Brötzmann, Paal Nilssen-Love, Mark Sanders, Lotte Anker, John Tchicai, Jesper Zeuthen, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Tobias Delius, Mikolaj Trzaska, Phil Minton, Rudi Mahall and Peter Friis-Nielsen.
