Danish composer Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen

Yup, that’s former badboy of the Danish avant garde, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, going ‘a bit Thom Yorke’ to his 1985 percussion concerto Triptykon. (Which use the Fibonacci series, among other things, as a structuring device.)

If that has whetted your appetite for more PGH, then you’re in luck. First of all get yourself a copy of this new CD from Da Capo records (who also produce the documentary Music is a Monster from which the above clip is taken). Second, head over to Canterbury next Tuesday for the Sounds New Festival, where the CD will be launched with a concert by the Danish Horn Trio.

There’s plenty of other great stuff at Sounds New all next week. Check out the full programme here.

Hat-tip to my good friend Nick Reyland for pointing me to the PGH video.
