Tomas Kærup is the ambient jazz instrumental solo project by Danish guitarist and producer Tomas Kærup.
Currently working with Josefine Opsahl (composer, cellist) and Katrine Grarup Elbo (violist) for some new instrumental pieces written for piano trio and guitar & electronics.
Released summer 2022 the album “Tall Windows” was released on Cosmopol Music Group. The nine ambient jazz and post-rock instrumental tracks on Tall Windows are written for electric guitar and analog electronics, and a computer based sound system.
Danish master painters from around the end of 18th century until beginning of the 19th, especially Hammershoi and J.F. Willumsen, laid the inspiration for the music – and the album title.
The album runs 37 minutes and presents Kærup’s almost silent melodic ambient sensibilities as well as his background in punk rock and noise. The three preludes, also the first of the album tracks written, combines both worlds: the quiet transcending melodic motifs and the powerful distorted sonic soundscapes. Constantly floating, evolving and transposing between sounds and vibrant motifs the music is both dreamy and seductive -instrumental ambience soundscapes and distorted bliss. Lightness, darkness, hope and despair.
As a producer he has worked with legendary composer and cellist Josefine Opsahl, producing her live shows and her debut solo album, Atrium (Dacapo Records), sound design for the opera “Drømmedøden“; the classical string quartet Amarzone Quartet a.o. and produced for Hess Is More, album “Apollonian Solos”.
