Konie

About

Since a few years now in a a music club Studio Cobra in Stockholm, Konie is gathering musicians around him, people that stop by, contribute ideas and write a bit on the songs, and play with Konie in the Studio Cobra. That's what the club is about. 

Konie, in real life Martin Ehrencrona took his mothers Philips tape recorder from the 50's and by taping the loops together on the tape recorder a frame of the songs is created. The result is like something you never heard before. Half of the songs have vocals and half of them are instrumental. A lot of it is improvised and caught in the moment. You won't believe it before you walk home with The Club is Open in your headphones, but you will discover a new world. More then one has described the music as a sounding Rocharch test, like having psychoanalysis whilst listening. The important thing is what it makes you feel.

Konie says: ´The songs are different stories being told, especially the instrumental ones´
