I’m planning the Stick concerts of 2024 now by making this 40-minute video with excerpts from 2023’s repertoire. I have been booked a lot to play in churches and I think the natural acoustics of these grande halls work exceptionally well for this moody music.
Here’s an excerpt from one of the Chapman Stick solo concerts I performed in medevial churches during the summer 2019. Hope you enjoy it!
Excerpt from a solo concert at Tynnered Kyrka, Sweden, on June 24 2015. First song “Gammal Fäbodspsalm” is an old traditional folk melody. Second song “Emerald” by Per Boysen is only featured here by the intro part because the camera stopped filming there…. Sorry about that, the full concert was some forty minutes.
Make Musik Sthlm
The streets of Stockholm Södermalm (the southern city island, “SoFo”) will be cooking by outdoors live music on June 6. First time I performed at Fête de la Musique in Stockholm was 2002 and in recent years it has become a healthy habit for me to take part in MMS every June 6th.
Erdem HELVACIOGLU + Per BOYSEN Présences… by inagrm
This gig was performed in octophonics. At the soundcheck we were told they
actually had set up two circles of eight speakers system. One big
circle with the big speakers surrounding the audience and one inner circle… or
should I rather call it “inner exploding core”? We decided to use
both. I had re-routed my laptop outputs for octaphonic treatments and
Erdem used his rack devices through a borrowed stage mixer to address
the surround system. On stage we had a stereo mix of all eight
surround channels, so the monitoring sound were rather flat.
If you click the source link there are more videos of many other artists. Among them many of my own favorites, like for example Biosphère and Supersilent.
Springtime in Sweden always starts at the west coast. It’s an honor for me to share an evening at BrÖtz in Gothenburg with Lloyd and Harald Svensson! The club is located in Konstepideming at Linnéplatsen, tram line 1 or 6. Street address “Karl Eric Hammaréns backe”. The beautiful poster below, fearlessly mutilated by me, was designed by Karin Linderoth.
