Duo Resonante
duo resonante

Henrik Jespersen:
electro acoustic recorders and soprano sax

Ko de Regt:
obukano (basslyre from Kenya)

After playing together in different groups and contexts since the beginning af the eighties in the Danish avantgarde surroundings Jespersen and de Regt decided to start to work as a duo in 1993.
The basis of the music is formulated by the obucano in its rhythmes and phrases, over which Jespersen whith his electro acoustic amplified saxophones and flutes lays his layers of melodies and sounds.

From the beginning the duo decided not to make any restriction in their ways of playing, but play music from the heart using all the experiences they have built in their lives - a classical music theme can be played together with an etnical, rhythmical development; a piece of  scandinavian folkmusic can transpose itself into an exiting jazzimprovisation etc. The princip is that the music takes its startingpoint in the musical feelings from the moment, from hwere it can be developed in any direction. Its impossible to put this music in a base, but only to experience it.
Besides of making concerts the duo has made music for many different projects, both as composers and as musicians - a.o. for Palle Granhøjs dance-performance and movie ‘Bodyfluids’, a piece for the Royal Danish Ballet, music for a Korean performance of ‘Ullysses’ played both in Korea and Germany etc.
Since their start Duo Resonante has been on many international tours and so had concerttours  in Spain, Italy, Holland, Belgium, France, Germany, Korea and Mexico.
The duo has also performed on many festivals, both national and international - f.ex. NUMUS festival in Denmark, Buskersfestival in Ferrara (Italy), Jazzkaar in Estonia, Jazz around in Bruxelles , EU jazzfestival in Mexico City and Oaxaca.Festivals in Colmurano ,Martina Franca (Italy) and Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, Wroclaw, Poland, Neuchatel, Schwietzerland.
