Group in Residence, Hess Is More, returns to The National Sawdust to premiere new works, live in concert. Hess Is More will be in full 7 piece ensemble formation, proudly welcoming the splendid Monika Heidemann in the keyboard department.
These 7 musicians, with their unique instrumentation and unorthodox arrangements create a very danceable yet at times puzzling concert. Catchy melodies and chant like lyrics can haunt you for days… Hess Is More started out as an electronic solo project for Danish musician Mikkel Hess. Through 6 albums and various tours and collaborations the project has developed into a full blown Transatlantic Live Music Ensemble, working with a more collective approach. Their latest release “Bearsong / Primate” (Gomma Records) is a celebration of the energy and interplay of the live ensemble – sounding in the borderland between electronic dance music, afrobeat, krautrock and jazz.
