Event Details

Girls in Airports is very much a collective, and this is evident in the way they make music. As Martin Stender, the main composer and saxophonist, says: “A tune starts with me playing an unfinished idea on the piano. I am not a pianist so it sounds like a children’s song or a very slow jazz ballad. Keyboard player Mathias will immediately sit down and do a much better version without looking at the notes I have scribbled down. Then the drummers add a rhythmic layer that changes the whole thing into something else and then saxophonist Lars will make all of us follow him into some third place we’ve never been before. It is quite easy to write new tunes for this band”. The stories that they tell in their music are varied, colourful and unique. The ambient sound-scape is percussive with the twin sax attack adding bite and piling on the emotion. Riding the scale from euphoric to melancholic, the impact of Girls in Airports’ music is a very personal one for the band and intensely emotional for the listener.;“Girls in Airports make a sound that really is utterly unique…electronic, yet strangely bohemian at the same time…” The Jazz House, BBC Radio Scotland;www.girlsinairports.net
