Topos, the danish forefront of interesting musings and beyond, is releasing “Madrigal” today. A piece of music by Tobias Kirstein and Christian Rønn recorded live in 2017. Two organs, 8 oscillators, wooden floor and ceiling, stonewalls, some people and a good amount of time and patience.
Christian Rønn works with improvisation, electroacoustics, fixed composition, soundart and film-music, performing and writing in a variety of combinations and constellations. F.ex. with Ikue Mori, Peter Peter, Aram Shelton and P.O. Jørgens. Points of interest: unrecognizable states of being, transcendence, journey beyond language. His energetic and out-of-body-playing-style has been likened to Cecil Taylor and Sun Ra. As an organ-and piano-player, he creates solo- and collaborative works for organ, piano and multi-channel electronics as well as installation-works. Writes and produces “Panser” with Peter Peter as well as the popular electronica-act “Ganga” and has been scoring film-classics as “Battleship Potemkin”, “Metropolis” and “Man with a Moving Camera”.
