SCENATET  

ensemble

SCENATET – ensemble for music and art was founded by artistic director Anna Berit Asp Christensen in 2008 and moves in a cross-genre field of music, drama and happenings towards areas with yet undefined genres. The ensemble aims to create conceptual art works of high quality, where music is part of a larger whole.

SCENATET creates many types of productions; theatrical and artistically unique as well as more classic ones, including many new works in close collaboration with composers, directors, artists, filmmakers as well as festivals and art spaces.

SCENATET is a permanent constellation of 12 musicians and is recognized as one of the most innovative and experimental ensembles for music and art in Europe.

SCENATET is highly visible on the international art scene and has toured much of the world, often with world premieres at renowned venues. The ensemble’s concerts, however, may also be encountered in unexpected but yet familiar surroundings such as shopping malls, backyards and private homes.

The ensemble has performed at established festivals such as Ultima (NO), Transit (BE), November Musik (NL), Shanghai New Music Week (CHN), MaerzMusik (DE), Warszawa Autumn (PL), Bergen Festspillene (NO), SPOR (DK), Wundergrund (DK), Nordic Music Days (DK), Borealis
(NO), hcmf// (UK) and Heroines of Sound (DE).

SCENATET has represented Denmark in the European cultural project NewAud – New Music:
New Audiences.

NIELS RØNSHOLDT: ME QUITTE
"Focusing on the delicateness of the composer, Rønsholdt disturbs our idea of the perfectly organizing and genuinely creating composer, which the 20th century idealized."

EN HYLDEST TIL NAIVITETEN FRA EN FORTABT FØR-DIGITAL TID
"Der opstår en forskel mellem instrumenter, der på den ene side lader til at lyde som noget man kender, men på den anden alligevel ikke gør det – og her åbner mindernes rum sig, og en nostalgisk følelse breder sig. Just Christensens musik virker som en håndlavet hyldest til naiviteten fra en fortabt prædigital tid."

Symfoni for Hipstere
4/6 Stars

"Det er stærkt antiæstetisk og giver ny betydning til det gamle wienerfænomen Schrammelmusik. Men det er også et stykke moderne, bæredygtig storbykultur og lyder temmelig morsomt. Hans klangverden er unik, og jeg kan af ærligt hjerte anbefale dette møde med en komponist, der går i barndom."

JEPPE JUST CHRISTENSEN: Songs & Movements
4/6 Hjerter

"Det handler om gentagelsernes og det håbløses stampende skønhed, og man bliver ikke et mindre lykkeligt menneske af at lytte med, når Jeppe Just Instituttet og kammerensemblet Scenatet dyrker glæden ved det skæve og nostalgiske"

4/5 Stars

"Gloriously abstract, yet possessed of an enigmatic narrative and emotional coherence, Fish and Fowl will keep you under its spell from beginning to end."

Juliana Hodkinson; Niels Rønsholdt: Fish & Fowl
4/4 Stars

"Musiken trevar, famlar, smeker och vilar i ett oavbrutet spel mellan närhet och avstånd, det uttalade och det outtalade."
