the K​-​sessions

Music by Christos Farmakis & Jørgen Allan • Recorded in Kikhavn, DK | 2022 • All percussion: Jørgen Allan Christiansen & Christos Farmakis
Recording, mixing & mastering: Christos Farmakis

The K-sessions were recorded while meditating in a traditional Danish house in Kikhavn, on the north side of Sjælland, Denmark, in June 2022. The fact that this is a live recording, a live conversation with sounds, between two composers & friends, implies the concept of instant music making, right on the spot. The sounds evolve in space with only a very small amount of improvisation based on mutual respect of each other’s gestures and movements. Each idea gets space to be presented and then circulates and developes around the instrument area with the sound quality and homogenity as the only boundary.
