Hess Is More presents 10 days of staged concerts at Apollo
During this year’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Hess Is More explores the boundaries of the concert format in an open laboratorie series. Every day during the festival the band performs a unique concert under the influence of theatre director Tue Biering, stage designer Christian Friedländer and designer Henrik Vibskov.
The concerts are set apart with themes such as VOCAL, TEXT, PERCUSSION and HORNS, and the series also presents a selection of Danish and international guests. The music unfolds in between the electronic and the acoustic and connects to various genres and corners of the world: jazz, kraut, dance music, MaPiano, pop, electronica…. Melodies and visual elements are twisted and turned and sent into orbit – echoing another dimension where there is a focus on time, trance and openness.
