Mikkel Hess & the Hess Is More Ministry of Integration

As self-appointed minister of integration Mikkel Hess directs the sum of all the great artists that are and have been part of the concerts, projects, parties, films, and plays that took place under the name Hess Is More. With the support of his fellow musicians and collaborators he throughout the years has made music for films, theater and multimedia, including cooperations with the Royal Theatre, National Danish TV, The Danish Film School and many more.

Working for a month in the Clocktower Gallery recording studio, Mikkel Hess develops new music, rehearses his ensemble Hess Is More, records demos, and produces a radio series that investigates contrasts such as dry talk versus loud music, dead serious interrogation versus air-headed fun and many more.

Special event:

Mikkel Hess & the Hess Is More ministry of Integration: My Head is a Ballroom?

During the month of sessions in the Clocktower Recording Studio, Mikkel Hess and his fellow musicians of "Hess Is More Live" worked to develop and arrange new material. This process yielded a repertoire investigating relations between Folk, Disco, Pop, Afro, Punk, Jazz and more... On Tuesday May 28, 2013 the ensemble plays an intimate "work in progress" concert, live testing this new music for the very first time. A selection of photographs by "stupidface" is on view in the studio along with other elements from the process.
