I will run an workshop in Max4Live and synthtechniques at Jyderup Højskole the 4 – 5 of april.
The workshop is also open for non-students; please contact Jyderup for further details.
There will be an after dinner concert Thursday, with me and students.
Sun. Feb 3rd. 7:15 pm,
Der Goldene Schmetterling / Michael Kertesz, 1926 / 82 min. Incl. introduction / live music: Mikkel Meyer + Ida Bach Jensen
Michael Kertesz, The director behind Casablanca, made a number of ambitious films in Berlin and Vienna in the 1920’s, as he challenged Hollywood on glamour, style, star-quality and dance choreography. This is exemplified in the aesthetic, sensual and overwhelmingly tragic ‘The Golden Butterfly’ with the films star, former model Lili Damita. Remember your handkerchief!
Live music: Behind this liveperformance is the duo with laptop musician Mikkel Meyer and Ida Bach Jensen, who plays the classic contra bass with soundeffects. This will be interesting!
Before the concert the Austrian embassy treats you to a glass of wine at The Cinemateques Asta Bar.
Radio on Radio
On the 29 of November, from 19 – 21 Danish time, The Danish sound artist Mikkel Meyer fills the airwaves with Nordic food, and invites you to join the dinner. Here you will meet four interesting gentlemen at the restaurant called Radio in Copenhagen. The location of the restaurant is quite special: it used to be the studio of the experimental Danish radio programme, Lydmuren, the digital remains of which were broadcast on Mobile Radio BSP at the 30th Bienal of São Paulo from the 10 – 15 October 2012. The people you will meet are the poets Jens Blendstrup and Niels Ivar Larsen, composer Jacob Riis and CEO of the Meyer Group Emil Bruun Blauert. What the four have in common is their shared – albeit extremely different – takes on what you might call experimental montage and that they have all worked with these techniques in this Radio building.
The conversation will be streamed live to you on Mobile Radio BSP from the Bienal in São Paulo and on Resonance104.4 FM in London. The transmission will embody two parallel conversations, since four English translators will translate, simultaneously, the conversation from Danish into English. These conversations will be mixed with ambient sounds from the restaurant, creating a picture in sound of the whole setting. So tune in and enjoy a gourmet dinner at Radio on radio.

Live remix of Charles Mingus
As a part of the REMIXED & RE-IMAGINED project which pays tribute to Charles Mingus and Ornette Coleman. Mikkel Meyer are twisting his knobs at Copenhagen Jazzhouse.
The concept is that 4 electronic musicians each interpret a track from one of these 2 miliestones within the avantgarde jazz.
Each act gets 15 minutes, and in the end all 4 musicians will end up improvising together over elements from the selected albums.
Can electronic musicians play jazz? Come and judge for yourself.
