1. Christian Rønn / Helena berglund – Piece: GASP
A rendition of what happens when you spend 6 days in Ton studio Worm while the world is burning with war, post-pandemic dystopia nightmares, weird santa´s and the bubbling spring-time vibes of Rotterdam. The piece is an attempt to combine Christian Rønn´s freeform playing-practice on keyboard-instruments (Piano, Church Organ, Rhodes & Würlitzer in combination with electronics) with Helena Berglund´s evocative performance-poetry. The duo releases music under the name “MäRK”, and while working on this piece in Ton Studio Worm, they used a “one-take-Dogma” which involved minimal editing and post-editing, partly to separate this work from their previous releases, which are all intensively edited studio-productions.
2. “Pink Fairies” (Piano, Bass & Dictaphone) by Blind Mans Band (Claus Poulsen & Christian Rønn) the piece “Pink Fairies” by the duo Blind Mans Band (Christian Rønn, piano & Claus Poulsen, bass) is the latest release to leave Christian Rønn´s studio. March 18th, 2022.
3. “Primordoal Chaos” (Resipiscent Records, Nische 2018) with Ikue Mori (DNA, John Zorn).
The piece “Primordial Chaos” (Mori/Rønn 2018) (Resipiscent / Nische), features Ikue Mori on electronics and Christian Rønn on piano & electronics), and is mentioned here to give a fuller picture of Christian Rønn´s ongoing work with combining piano & electronics.
4. “Static” (Church Organ & Electronics) (Christian Rønn, 2017, Insula Records / Nische).
