Yes! Its the Monday Band at 7pm each Monday until the end of time. The Monday Band was formed to focus on playing improvised music in a large ensemble and draws its members from the large vibrant group of improvisers in town and passing through. The idea is to have an international band with an open constellation which connects the improvising scene in Copenhagen and performs every week. The band will play minimal compositions, improvising concepts and graphic scores composed and arranged by the members of the band. the band will have a flexible lineup each week but with a core group of artists consistently there.  Copenhagen has long needed a place where a steady workshop band could experiment with improvising in a large ensemble and the MondayClub is the place to do it so welcome to THE MONDAY BAND

kl 20 Niklas Fite / Hein Westgaard the duo !!
Niklas Fite – guitar

Hein Westgaard and Niklas Fite will play a guitar duet. They are very dynamic, very prolific, and they are both guitar-extraordinaries. You don’t want to miss this one, I can tell you that much!

kl 21 Jakob Kullberg – Søren Kjærgaard – Kresten Osgood
Jakob Kullberg – cello
Søren Kjærgaard – keys
Kresten Osgood – drums

First time meeting of this total allstar trio. Kullberg is a master of contemporary cello in all its aspects, Kjærgaard is one of the most forward thinking pianists of his generation and Osgood is consistantly expanding the vocabulary his music. an absolute must see!

kl 22 Klapper / Berre Duo
Martin Klapper (CZ) – amplified objects, tape, electronics, toys
Håkon Berre (NO) – drums, preparations/objects

Electro-acoustic wizard Martin Klapper was on the scene already in the 80s when he participated in the legendary Company weeks organized by Derek Bailey. Among his many collaborations, the duo with Roger Turner appears as one of the most important – «Recourseful, these fellows – aren’t they», as Bailey said about them with a typical British understatement. Born 1963 in Prague, Czech Republic, he works as a composer, musician and visual artist. Martin Klapper is a musician who gets on-stage without a single recognizable musical instrument. Instead, he improvises with as much as two full picnic tables covered with mechanical toys, toy instruments, everyday electronic gadgets, and a variety of homemade instruments. His ability to coax an incredible array of weird sounds out of these devices, combined with a seemingly always-in-control manner of interplay with his fellow musicians, made him an in-demand player on the improv scene since the mid-‘80s.

Håkon Berre is Norwegian drummer and composer who currently resides in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he works as a freelance musician and educator. His playing is characterized by an inventive and energetic drumming, using a rich palette of sounds from a wide diversity of trash and objects, and occationally incorporating real-time electronics. This can be heard on a discography spanning 42 CD’s and LP’s, and has brought him to numerous clubs and festivals all around the world with improvisers like Peter Brötzmann, Phil Minton, Axel Dörner, John Tchicai, Peter Friis-Nielsen, Tobias Delius, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Mikko Innanen, Liudas Mockunas and Susana Santos Silva. Håkon is the founder and an active member of the record label & musicians collective Barefoot Records.

kl 23 Gianluca Elia /  Federico Corsini – the Duo
Gianluca Elia – electronics
Federico Corsini – bass

Così come Santa Marta, spezzati a terra gli strumenti, cessato già sui sempre verdi paesaggi il canto che il cuore di Santa Cecilia accorda col cielo latino, dolce e rosata presso il crepuscolo antico ne la linea eroica de la grande figura femminile romana sosta. Ricordi di zingare, ricordi d’amori lontani, ricordi di suoni e di luci: stanchezze d’amore, stanchezze improvvise sul letto di una taverna lontana, altra culla avventurosa di incertezza e di rimpianto: così quello che ancora era arido e dolce, sfiorite le rose de la giovinezza, sorgeva sul panorama scheletrico del mondo

kl 24 SONNTAG (Mennenöh/Tamulynaite)
Zola Mennenöh – voice, electronics, sampler
Guoste Tamulynaite – prepared piano, synth

SONNTAG is an improvising, international duo based in Copenhagen and Oslo. After meeting in the the beginning of 2018, the musicians quickly discovered their common interests in exploring the textural and tonal possibilities of their instruments while keeping the expression minimal and concrete. They work with nontraditional approaches to voice and piano by combining acoustic and electronic sounds. The music is responsive, gradually moving in different directions that can lead both to quiet, grainy, non-tonal parts, but also melodic, rhythmic, song-like fragments.

Emilie Eie – VOX
Karoline Karlsen – VOX

Anna Elise Sørdal Klungre – VOX

VOK ENS er et improviserende vokalensemble. I tillegg til å være fritt improviserende leker de seg med tekst, rammer og arrangementer. Ensemblet jobber mye med nyanser i stemmen, ulik bruk av den, og oppleves derfor som kontrastfylt. Det kan oppstå både melodiske lydlandskap, støy og groove i ensemblet.

kl 21 Rune Kielsgaard – Søren Kjærgaard – the duo
Rune Kielsgaard – drums
Søren Kjærgaard – keys

At first it was the long walks on the reperbahn… these guys have been playing together on an off for many years but to our knowledge never as a duo.

Jakob Høyer – drums

Another first time duo by two master players who need no introduction. Jesper Zeuthen is at the top of his game these days. just celebrated his 70 year birthday and recieved a danish music award..his playing is as strong as it ever was. Høyer is everybodys favorite drummer. highly sensitive and creative. just how we like it. be there again!

kl 23 Gustaf Rosenberg Abstractions
Gustaf rosenberg – piano
Pontus Häggblom – drums

kl 21  KØS.
Maria Dybbroe – alto saxophone
Valdemar Kragelund – electronics and bass
Kristian Isholm Saarup – drums

Three musical siblings from the Copenhagen underground scene form KØS and create music with a love for expressivity, pathos, fragility, and rawness. Playing as a group since 2014 in an electro-acoustic universe, they draw on backgrounds in free improvisation, jazz and hip hop and mix this with inspirations from classical music, ambient music and noise.
KØS presents a musical universe with long stretched developments, beautiful melodies and repetitive rhythmical structures, broad soundscapes and big dynamic changes. The musical journey is what thrills – and presence, attentiveness and statements are what matter. In May 2017 the debut EP ‘KØS’ was released and a new LP wasreleased in Summer 2018.

kl 22 OMNIA Musicians Collective

Nadia Okrusko (Piano)

Anne Marie Hjort Christiansen (Violin)
Oda Mathilde (Cello)
Piotr Dubajko (Contrabass)

The OMNIA Musicians Collective consists of musicians daring to merge the oil and water that are the classical and improvised music scenes respectively. These two thoroughly emulsified paints deeply juxtapose and complement each other and by virtue of their strengths and weaknesses, seek to add new colours to the Copenhagen musical landscape!
Many musicians
The fire is lit by Paul
Oh so cramped on stage

kl 23 Ektos ensemble
Michał Biel – baritone/soprano saxophone, recorded sounds, production
Cosimo Fiaschi – soprano saxophone

Hein Westgaard – electric guitar, electronics

Ensemble for experimental music and instrumental sound art focusing on both sounds and ideas. Performing original productions, interpretation of other composers music and commissions, with an interest for a number of topics such as contingency, paradoxes, mass and morphology of sound, mostly related to a general astonishment of material reality and its complexity.

kl 24 The Moms
Taus Bregnhøj-Olesen: guitar/homemade effects
Asger Thomsen: double bass/objects

The Moms is actually a trio with Albert Cirera, but since he is away, it will be a special duo concert (or maybe some secret guest(s) will join(!?)).
It’s the sounds of a guitar not sounding like a guitar but sounding more like a double bass not sounding like a double bass but sounding more like a guitar not sounding like a guitar and so on.
