2014: Frisk Frugt and Orchestra at Hitparaden 2
Fresh Fruit is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Anders Lauge Meldgaard. Since he debuted as Fresh Fruit with the album “Gold Trumpet” in 2006, he became a unique figure on the Danish music scene. At our Hitparaden 2 festival, Fresh Fruit played a special concert with orchestral backing and as the icing on the cake, visual artist and musician Kim Grønborg contributed visuals to the show.
About the Artist
Anders Lauge Meldgaard is the real name of the man behind Frisk Frugt. His roots are in the experimental music collective yoyooyoy, based in Berlin and Copenhagen. Together they have been involved with numerous music and art projects in over a decade. Under the alias Frisk Frugt he has released two albums, “Guldtrompeten in 2006” and “Dansktoppen møder Burkina Faso i det himmelblå rum hvor solen bor” in 2010.
Frisk Frugt (eng. Fresh Fruit) operates in his own quirky musical universe, where the genre of traditional Danish folk song writing and poetry in an unpretentious way are spiced up with elements from experimental rock, improvisation, drone, noise, electronica, lo-fi, free jazz and African high-life guitar. Here, the music arises at the intersection between the programmed and the hand played, and between the naive and the complex – where the sonorous clouds of tones from home-built instruments, brutal guitar riffs, synth dreams and saxophone improvisations are mixed together in a colourful cocktail, full of dizzy and dazed energy and containing flavours from all over the world.
