Jan Bang

Born:

The musical spheres Jan Bang works in revolve around such luminaries as Jon Hassell, David Sylvian, Brian Eno, Sidsel Endresen, Nils Petter Molvær and Arve Henriksen. From his work as successful pop producer in the 1990s, his creative thrust and pioneering work in developing the concept of live remix - improvising with electronics alongside more conventional instruments and performers - has led to him being constantly in-demand as a producer and performer today.

In 2005 he launched, together with Erik Honoré, the internationally renowned Punkt Festival, where Bang's live sampling - his own musical instrument - works within the framework of overlapping concerts: one being the original; the other, the remix

Gustav Lundgren: Live At Fasching

Read "Live At Fasching" reviewed by Chris May

Read "Atmosphères" reviewed by David Bruggink


A cross-cultural collaboration between Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen, guitarist Eivind Aarset, sound manipulator Jan Bang, and Armenian pianist Tigran Hamasyan, Atmosphères seems to be a quintessential ECM release in certain ways.
