    Jasper Hoiby: Planet B

    This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

    Renowned for his fearlessly expressive sound, charismatic stage presence and compositional prowess, the double bassist presents his climate justice-inspired project.

    Jasper Høiby is recognised for his work with his power trio Phronesis, his group Fellow Creatures and most recently his trio Planet B.

    Together with the saxophonist Josh Arcoleo and drummer Marc Michel, Høiby is shaping adventurous new music to prise open the narrow framework of political debate.

    Plan B takes his compositional skills into thrillingly uncharted territory, combining the dynamism and warmth of his acoustic tones with expansive electronic soundscapes, samples of speech and atmospheres along with vertiginous loops.

    Ecology and justice have long been in Høiby’s thinking and music, and Planet B pulls this into the open with real conviction.

    ‘It’s about more than making music for music’s sake. Planet B is a conversation about who we are as a people today, how we exist in relation to this earth and to each other, and where we want to go from here,’ Høiby says.

    Planet B dives into the unknown and embraces each moment with shimmering, fluid, composed and improvised sound worlds that interact with speech samples from some of the most inspiring thinkers.

    It makes for a dialogue on themes such as ecology, climate and human interconnectedness in this evocative and highly thought-provoking music.
