Exciting news for danish people - in danish (sorry).
LYS – landskab og stemmer, seks aftener i september 2011
Evigt produktive Marie Højlund har i samarbejde med Søren Lyngsø Knudsen lavet en musikalsk stemmekomposition til et unikt lys- og lydværk skabt specielt til seks forskellige steder i den Østjyske natur. Værket opleves i landskabet, hvor man både ser og hører stemme komposition, lys, skulptur og digt.
Lys - landskab og stemmer er skabt i samarbejde med programmører, virksomheder, kunstnere og borgere og anvender helt ny teknologi. I en gammel campingvogn, forvandlet til et lydstudie, er Inger Christensens glødende digt LYS fra 1962, blevet indtalt 758 gange!! Ligesom Inger Christensens digt, spænder værket sig ud mellem lys og mørke, mellem mennesker og landskab, mellem nærhed og fjernhed. En lyslinie følger landskabet til horisontens forsvindingspunkt sammen med et musikalsk lydværk.
Elle-Mie Ejdrup Hansen har formgivet særlige højtalere, der refererer til menneskets krop og placeret dem i landskabet under lyslinien.

Concert @Aarhus Festuge
We are playing one single show in Aarhus Saturday 3. september as a part of the Rebel Town event at Aarhus Festuge along with tons of cool bands and artists.
More info right here: Aarhus Festuge Rebel Town
Facebook Event to show yr friends what you're up to HERE!
Our upcoming album is materializing at the speed of sound and we are eager to present it to you!
We are currently working on 14 new extravagant songs/sketches/ideas from our humble hearts in several different locations with a number of lovable producers and friends.
Kenneth Nørby Andersen (The Malpractice, Beta Satan, ao.),
Anders Boll (Howe Gelb Efterklang, ao.),
Kristian Vad (TV2, Kings Of Dark Disco, ao.)
and of course our very own Klaus Q Hedegård (Tiger Tunes, Figurines ao.) and Emil Thomsen (Marybell Katastrophy!).
As usual our inspirations and creative outputs point in a thousand directions, but songwriting is more focused than ever - and we're actually pretty sure the album is gonna end up quite coherent.
Conclusion: if music be the food of love - all is love.
Feel free to share this with your friends!
They like Marybell too, but probably just forgot to click "like" on the bandpage
Very soon we will play some very special shows in Aarhus and Cph with videosynth and explosions - more about that later - but for now have a look at the spectacular clothes the talented illustrator Karen Segall made for us - being printed in Germany right now. They are all unique and inspired by our songs.
The summer has taken a hold on us, and instead of sending you new version of Difference, we give you the tracks for you to remix yourself - if you subscribe to Different Differences in the shop. It's the same tracks as all the musicians making new versions got, and you should send us your version if you make a good one - maybe we will send it our to all subscibers! Don't think that we will stop sending you new versions, there are several new ones coming up during the rest of the summer, and hopefully this will be the neverending song...
We are took a little summer break but saturday we will play during the Jazz (?!) festival in Copenhagen. The concert will take place in Øksnehallen in the Foyer and Roxy Joules (who used to play in Marybell) will play before us.
The danish national radio P3, usually playing a lot of crap music, playlisted our version of Difference The Difference - I guess they play it once in a while in the night when they think they won't disturb too many with our cataclysmic-odd-experimental-extreme-art-music and still keeping on track with the alternative part of our very small country. Our good friend Johannes now aka. http://www.myspace.com/themalpracticedk (once I Am Bones then Cabin Fever - now The Malpractise) also has a great great song playing there right now, where Q is playing drums and Emil did the mastering job, so maybe it's time to try and turn it on - if you dare...
As I mentioned before the danish poet Morten Søndergaard is writing almost all the lyrics for the new Marybell songs - including Difference. He usually writes everything in danish, but with Marybell he writes in english, so we gave him the challange to read the poem out loud in danish - he did (with a little help from Google translate) and here you go! perfect for a sunday evening.
I will continue presenting some of the most important co-creators of Marybell as a whole. I already introduces my sister and Q the famous drummer and also composer of some of the early and upcoming Marybell songs. Today I would like to start at the beginning, introducing my first Marybell collaborator Anders Boll. He is my old friend and we followed eachother at almost every concert I played for many years - with Anders as sound engineer. Before Marybell it was my youth band Baton Rouge, then a lot of touring with Tiger Tunes. But when I started making Marybell music I asked Anders for mixing and programming help and he did a lot of the early stuff eg. on the song Hip. We are actually doing new stuff together now on some of the new songs, so I´m proud to introduce this fantastic friend! He also made the first Maria Timm album with her and does sound for great acts as eg. Efterklang.
