Tiny Desk (Residence) Live performance : NPR

The Tiny Desk is working from dwelling for just a bit bit longer. For now, NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (dwelling) concert events carry you performances from throughout the nation and the world. It is the identical spirit — stripped-down units, an intimate setting — only a completely different house.

Svaneborg Kardyb‘s Tiny Desk (dwelling) live performance was recorded within the countryside of Djursland, Denmark. “You must drive for some time on a gravel street, and then you definitely come to a beautiful previous home surrounded by hills and a stream on one facet and a really flat panorama on the opposite, the place you’ll be able to see 10 miles away,” the band wrote to us, describing the situation of the shoot. It is this place that impressed Svaneborg Kardyb’s second album, Haven (or “backyard” in English). “Haven celebrates locations we wish to be,” the duo mentioned.

The Danish jazz duo consists of Nikolaj Svaneborg on the Wurlitzer, synthesizer and piano, and Jonas Kardyb on drums and percussion. Their instrumentation set-up is untraditional, with the drums and keys dealing with one another, a place that they play in on stage simply as they do in Kardyb’s kitchen and lounge right here. They open up their set with the title observe from Haven, which begins with a quiet melody over an effervescent loop. The sound mimics the shimmy of leaves within the breeze.

This live performance is the soundtrack for mendacity beneath a tree cover and watching the solar illuminate every leaf, seeing the veins clearly because the solar makes its means down to achieve every department. “The countryside reminds you,” Kardyb wrote, “that it’s beautiful to put each ft within the grass.”
