Hedvig Mollestad and Colin Stetson Duo

Artist in Residence

An exclusive collaboration sees the light of day in Molde - or should we say the darkness of the night? Two atmosphere creators meet to put each other to the test, invite them into each other's world and perhaps create a completely new one together with us!

Storyville (PLASSEN) 380,- fees incl.

A rare master meeting

The Canadian-American saxophonist Colin Stetson has built up a bit of a star status both as a solo artist and as a collaborator in various band contexts. Among those who have benefited from his services are greats such as Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Lou Reed, Bill Laswell and David Gilmour. Stetson has developed an exceptional technique on his instrument with his perfected circulation breathing being perhaps the most prominent. He combines strength with sensitivity and constantly pushes the boundaries of what a saxophonist can be. As a solo artist, he likes to use bass saxophone, but can also use alto, soprano, tenor and baritone sax. He has released a number of albums and in recent years has been recognized for his film music composition, including for last year's "The Menu" with Ralph Fiennes.

Hedvig Mollestad was together with i.a. Stetson soloist on Mats Gustafsson's major piece "HIDROS 9" in autumn 2022. Hedvig says the following: - Colin represents something limitless that is impossible to categorise, and has defined a completely new branch within music created by saxophone. - He is intensely present, and creates images and spaces in a very distinctive way, she says. The meeting last autumn led to the idea of ​​the duo collaboration we will experience in the Storyville venue at 10pm on Tuesday 18 July. Colin Stetson has "visited" Moldejazz several times before, in 2015 he was even on the program with a duo collaboration with the aforementioned Gustafsson who was AIR at the time. That concert was unfortunately cancelled, so it is extra nice to now finally be able to present him at Moldejazz in an exclusive, dynamic and virtuoso duo collaboration where Mollestad and Stetson will obviously explore the outer limits of their instruments both in terms of strength and sensitivity.
