Sarah Neufeld koncert Atlas Aarhus

Om koncerten

21. april: Vi har fanget Sarah Neufeld til en kort snak om koncerten – læs interviewet længere nede.

Canadiske Sarah Neufeld kreerer musik, der på magisk vis forener minimalisme med de mange lag og lyde, man finder i moderne elektro-akustisk musik, avantgardistisk folk og indierock – musik, der er enormt stemningsfuld, og som skiftevis fremstår energisk og ambient.

Om Sarah Neufeld
Violinisten Sarah Neufeld kender vi først og fremmest fra Arcade Fire, men faktisk har hun været inde over et væld af andre spændende projekter også – lige fra det anmelderroste instrumentale ensemble Bell Orchestre til bands som The Luyas, Esmerine og Little Scream. Efter i hele sin karriere sideløbende at have puslet med violin-solostykker i det små begyndte hun for alvor at fokusere på et eget udtryk i 2011 – et træk, der siden har udmøntet sig i et par stærkt lovpriste album. Neufeld, der blandt andre er inspireret af navne som Bela Bartok, Steve Reich, Iva Bittova og Arthur Russell, solo-debuterede i 2013 med albummet “Hero Brother”, der blev indspillet i tæt samarbejde med tyske Nils Frahm. Samme år skabte hun sammen med landsmanden Colin Stetson musikken til filmen “Blue Caprice”, og netop Stetson, som hun kender fra Arcade Fire, har hun ofte samarbejdet med – ikke mindst på sidste års dybt anerkendte album “Never Were The Way She Was”, som de to var fælles afsendere på. Denne aften i Aarhus flankeres Sarah Neufeld, der i år er aktuel med sit solo-album nummer to, “The Ridge”, af Stefan Schneider, der tager sig af såvel trommer som elektronik.

Interview med Sarah Neufeld
What can the audience expect from the show?
“Stefan Schneider and I are bringing an explosive, vibrant, hypnotic performance to Europe in May.”

What merch do you bring?
“I’m bringing vinyl, CD’s, tank tops and tote bags for interested consumers.”

Which song do you prefer performing live?
“I don’t have a favorite, rather different moments bring about different highlights.”

What is the best thing about being on tour?
“I’m always grateful to perform for people in cities and countries all over the world. It’s such a unique experience.”

What is the best thing about returning from a successful tour?
“It’s pretty wonderful to return home and sleep in your own bed after being on the road.”

What are your plans for the rest of 2016?
“I’m continuing to tour “The Ridge”, as well as duo shows with Colin Stetson, ensemble performances of Gorecki’s 3rd Symphony, working on a new Bell Orchestre record, a new Arcade Fire record, as well as a handful of Arcade Fire shows.”

Anmeldercitater
“They wend through minimalist pinwheeling (“The sun roars into view”) and pared-down funk (“The rest of us”) to reach the title track’s Renaissance-motet epiphany, their odyssey made relatable through the grit, breath, and song that permeate their enchanting chronicle.” (Boston Globe, 2015 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Recorded live with no overdubs or loops, Never were the way she was is a perfect blend of Neufeld’s violin virtuosity and Stetson’s outside-the-box approach to saxophone and clarinet, their styles complementing yet pushing each other to new heights.” (Exclaim, 2015 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Never Were The Way She Was is stunning, understated and poignant, evoking isolation and yearning for some unnamed thing. Despite some less successful detours, it’s a monster of a journey that calls to mind a windswept, brutal white North fraught with life.” (NOW Magazine, 2015 – læs hele anmeldelsen)
