Gorm Askjær is a guitarist and composer living in Aarhus, Denmark. He has a background in jazz and improvised
music, but is currently working with both classically trained as well as improvising musicians, trying not to get to
much caught up in speculations about genres.
His music is adventourous and creates many different soundworlds,
while maintaining a personal focus and tone. Compositions are written both for his own bands or individual projects,
as well as comissions from others.
Current bands include Gorm Askjær Trio and Gorm Askjær Secret Safari.
Besides his own music Gorm is also teaching and is involved in different kinds of cultural and artistic projects,
arranging concerts etc.
