Borderline Ensemble

Borderline Ensemble is Denmarks first orchestra, who creates music, exclusively with the sign language Soundpainting. As if that's not dangerous enough, the Ensemble has joined forces with Danish multiartist Torsten ”T.S.” Høeg to release their debut, Beware.

Soundpainting is the live composing sign language created by New York composer Walter Thompson. Leading the 8 other musicians of Borderline Ensemble through the unknown terretories of the livecomposition, and using more than 750 Soundpainting-signs, are the two conductors Gustav Rasmussen og Ketil Duckert.

On Beware, this spontanously composed music is created around a series of poems by multiartist T.S. Høeg, all about two main-subjects: ”Music” and ”Love”. All recordings, music as well as reading, were recorded ”live” in the studio

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
