Following his successful solo-project Frisk Frugt and a decade of doing adventurous music and art projects in the yoyooyoy collective, composer, guitarist and eccentric multi-talent Anders Lauge Meldgaard has put the full force of his creative power into the mysteries of the electric guitar, bringing us his most epic creation to date.

The idea for the guitar sextet sprung while Meldgaard was traveling through Mali and Burkina Faso and encountering the local music. Much impressed by the simplicity, discipline and tightly knit collaboration of the musicians he witnessed, Meldgaard decided to explore a similar strategy for the electric guitar. The result takes minimal compositions, based on extended repetition and microscopic - yet danceable - grooves, as a departure point for climactic improvisations. Invoking, perhaps, as much the minimalism of Steve Reich as the cathartic rhythms of Konono No. 1, approaching even progressive psychedelia.

“Music For Six Electric Guitars” premiered at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival in 2010 and has since toured both Japan and Germany, as well as giving various appearances in Denmark. Gathering a team of highly respected guitarists from the Danish avant-garde and rock scenes, Meldgaards music is interpreted by a towering amount of talent from groups such as Pinkunoizu, Kalle del Hey, State Changes According To A Wind, Skammens Vogn, Joy L, Lily Electric, Shiggajon and others.

The material for this LP was produced over a one year period of intense work - with recording sessions in Copenhagen, Berlin and Oita - leading to a dense, multilayered creation of equal beauty and playfulness. As the title of one of the tracks lays it out, it’s a bicycle ride straight to the sun.

"I love it when I listen to guitar music and don’t always understand how the sounds were made, as it spins my mind off into fantasies of invention. I similarly love listening to a composition which is clear and confident, but whose backstory, or meta-story is mysterious, and invites me into the composer’s mind. Musik for Seks Electriske Guitarer succeeds on both points. It is an exceptionally lucid journey through the sonic possibilities of the electric guitar, framed in a beautifully structured 38 minute composition. Proud sounds, sensitive fabrics, clear architectures… this generous music tosses new mysteries into a world that needs more of such beautiful things."

- Nick Didkovsky, Aug 30, 2012, New York City


"Flipping brilliant (...)The piece was first performed at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival in 2010 and this live honing of the music has led to a very visceral set of tracks with howling climaxes that bring to mind Loop, early Spiritualized and Sonic Youth. (...) essentially it works so well because it succeeds in being all (cool) things to all (cool) people. It is at once a musicianly demonstration of multiple guitar techniques, a joyous ride through sunbursts of tuneful electronic guitar, placed somewhere between African high life, 20th century minimalism and avant rock and an exposition of a brilliant compositional mind at work."

"...the balancing act between academic nerdery and plain musical exitement is rarely performed better by any Danish musicians. A record which is at the same time infectious with it's playfulness and joy of playing and impressive with its overwhelming musical exuberance."✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶



"A highly inventive and playful journey into the mysterious sonic possibilities of the electric guitar. (...) These multi-layered compositions navigate playfully and methodically into their cathartic, noisy and chaotic codas."


"...modern guitar-based music in a constantly expanding field of possibilities from Anders Lauge Meldgaard and a magic circle of guitarists (...) One has the impression of a collective effort where the end sound is greatly influenced by the different personalities of the musicians and their equally different approaches to the instrument. Simultaneously one clearly senses the signature sound of Meldgaard in the bouncing and ecstatic eruptions, sure to delight fans of his "Frisk Frugt" project. Here the guitar is released from both clichés of rock and from blasé avant-garde strategies. What remains is a joyful toying with the field of possibilities of the electric guitar. This is how you cut a good guitar record."



"The long track "På cykel mod solen som et ekkolod II" finishes in ecstasy and is simply stunning. (...) The pieces are well played and super tight. They spread as much humor as they do earnestness."
