Julie Kjær THIS IS WHERE YOU SEE ME UK Premiere (Co-commissioned by hcmf// and ((Go))ng tomorrow festival)

Danish saxophonist Julie Kjær’s edgy and thoughtful playing has become increasingly evident around Europe – inhabiting the ground between composition and free improvisation, experimenting with extended techniques and sound, she pushes her instruments to the limits. Previous collaborations with artists as diverse as Paal Nilssen-Love, Dave Douglas, Mira Calix and ‘leafcutter’ John demonstrate the breadth of her work, and the high regard in which she is held. Here Kjaer makes her Huddersfield debut with a newly composed concert-length work, commissioned by hcmf// and Copenhagen’s newest festival, ((Go))ng Tomorrow. Performing with a handpicked ensemble of adventurous musicians from the European experimental music scene, THIS IS WHERE YOU SEE ME is a musical exploration of the process of metamorphosis and the stages of transformation.
