Andreas Borregaard: Solo-Act - new works for accordion performer




In a world of high quality digital musical reproduction, how do performers connect with their audience? When at the click of a mouse, perfect sounding recordings from around the world can be stopped and started, listened to and re-listened, through speaker systems that reproduce instruments in all their detail, why do we even need performance?

Today’s recorded music surely gives much more scope for contemplation and understanding of a
musical work than any live performance ever can. To investigate the enduring power of the live performance, and to embrace the physical nature of the performer, accordionist Andreas Borregaard presents new pieces from three composers whose work
embraces both the musical and the physical, bringing notions of performance and physicality back in to the frame of live music making.


  • Jennifer Walshe: SELF-CARE I, for accordion, tape recorder and film
  • Simon Steen-Andersen: Asthma, for accordion and video
  • Niels Rønsholdt: Until nothing left, for accordion solo, performing accordionist, objects and audience

The project was premiered at Borealis, festival for experimental music in Bergen, March 9 2017, and is supported by
The Danish Arts Council, The Arts Council (IE), Augustinus Fonden, Danish Musicians’ Union and Danish Composers'
Society's Production Pool and Koda's Cultural Funds.
