Emilio Gordoa | vibraphone

Dag Magnus Narvesen | drums

"Gordoa-Narvesen" plays the roll of a unique and original duo according the unusual instrumentation and sound. Their music is created in the moment of the performance, without concepts or compositions being made beforehand. The extension of the traditional vocabulary of their instruments and the language of free improvised music form a strong basis which they use to create a landscape of sounds in which listening plays an important role. A highly sensitive communication and a nuanced movement within different sonic idioms are the backbone of their music. Gordoa and Narvesen as well collaborate together in several projects such as "MoVe" quintet with Achim Kaufmann, Harri Sjöström and Adam Pultz Melbye, and “Emilio Gordoa Quartet” with Don Malfon and John Edwards.

Dag Magnus Narvesen (Norway/Berlin) is a drummer, percussionist and composer who mainly works within the field of improvised music and progressive jazz music. He's sound can be described as very energetic with lots of different textures developing simultaneously. There is a very strong melodic quality in the way he approaches the drums and his playing is also very influenced by what he calls elliptic grooves, - sequences of rhythmic elements which are resembling grooves and creating a forward motion without playing "in time". He is a very versatile and creative drummer who always is very much present in the moment. Dag Magnus has throughout the years collaborated with many profiled musicians, among them: Evan Parker, Andrew D'angelo, Marilyn Crispell, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Keith Tippet, Steve Beresford, Didrik Ingvaldsen, Johannes Bauer, Fredrik Ljungkvist and many more.
