NIght1-CCP

Always curious, CCP has since its inception in 2003 explored a wide range of new music repertoire: from hard-core modernism to graphically notated chance music, from minimalism to noise music, and from electronics to improvisation. The ensemble has experimented with framing concerts and sound installations with a unique use of time and space, each different according to the venue and situation.

Experimentation is at the core of CCP’s work and past projects have included bringing other art forms such as video improvisation, theatre, Tarot meditation, dance, poetry, and fragrance. Other than conventional instrumentation (flute, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, and cello), CCP extends its sound world through integrating everyday objects into their projects such as balloons, kitchen tools, and the infamous “beckoning cat”.

CCP has performed in contemporary music festivals such as Gaudeamus Muziekweek, IMPULS, New Directions Viitasaari, Darmstädter Ferienskurs, Estonian Music Days, Extension Paris, and SPOR to critical acclaim, bringing their own flavour of spontaneity and identity to every project they undertake.

With Malin Bång as the resident composer and co-artistic director, CCP specializes in collaborating with composers of the younger generation throughout Scandinavia and the rest of the world.
