The concert has finished
Anderskov on the 2020 solo album Anterior Current, on which he recorded music by a.o. Boulez, Ligeti, Stockhausen, and improvised around it: “The sounding result here is a less Eurocentric, less Colonialist soundscape than what has been the defining Modernist norm since Pierre Boulez. I think of Anterior Current’s production as a post-Eno, post-Olivieros statement, rather than an echo of Deutsche Grammophon. Furthermore, I imagine this entire album as challenging the strict concepts surrounding the European through-composed tradition - especially regarding the fractures between composition, improvisation and production. It was the unlucky fate of the modernist tradition to disregard the inclusion of the musician’s improvisational and interpretational ideas in the work – which might have been among the key reasons for the gradual marginalisation of this self-perceived music of the future.” Is Anterior Current his attempt at saving modernism from itself?
