Maximalistica slapp i år ut sitt debut album under en konsert på Copenhagen Jazzfestival. Bandet startet på Jazzkonservatoriet i København hvor alle i bandet hadde eller tok sin masterutdannelse i jazz, derav to nordmenn Trond Kallevåg Hansen og Stian Swensson. De har siden fått flere glimrende anmeldelser.
More is more”! We don’t take only one guitar player, but three. Not one drummer, but two drummers: this is Maximalistica!
This band, based in Copenhagen Denmark, is a fresh breeze in the music scene of this era. Maximalistica is a vital gathering of five different nationalities coming from the northern regions of Europe. Maximalistica experiments with new playing techniques and fresh ways to improvise. The unconventional instrumentation enables extended dynamics and colorful sound palettes.
A concert with Maximalistica is a journey. On our show free improvisations can escalate into gorgeous mayhem or the most complex a-tonal sound-scape can turn into a catchy Indie rock chorus!
