Improvisation that pushes the envelope

Hej Johannes pushes the envelope as an improv duo that focuses on conversation, attentiveness, and interest in each other's themes and ideas.

For the last four years, the two young musicians have been working together in different constellations, including in Johannes Gammelgaard's octet Johannes Gammelgaards ABC, who recently released an album, and formed the duo Hej Johannes in 2014. 

The simplicity of the duo format contains great freedom and great responsibility, as the soundscape can quickly become both naked and fragile.

At the same time, fragility is what makes the duo format so exciting as it forces musicians to position themselves and be accountable.

Hej Johannes was in the studio in February 2018 recording a debut album, which is set to release this fall.

Hej Johannes is part of:
