MUSIC FOR EXERCISE
Headband & Film
Soon you can be the proud owner of this headband - filled with music written and packaged to be listened to while exercising - developed by the Scandinavian music and performance ensemble Sekten. You can plug your favorite pair of headphones or earbuds right into the headband, put it on, and listen to the music while you sweat, or plug the unit into a large sound system via mini-jack cable if you want to share it while you work out as a group.
This is Sekten’s take on how workout music could (and should) be, and the music on this headband unit has been created specifically for the purpose of being listened to while exercising.
SEKTEN - 'KLUBBHUS'
RELEASED FEBRUARY 2ND 2012
In collaboration with one of Denmarks celebrated young documentary directors, Sofie Tønsberg, the pricewinning orchestra Sekten has made a fascinating music film.
Since 2003 the Copenhagen based Scandinavian orchestra Sekten has presented their whiff of madness and frail naivety combined with musical breadth and instrumental mastery. On stage, Sekten gives the audience a total conceptual experience of performance and music. With focus on improvisation, intuition and interaction, this unique band delivers a constantly surprising performance. This combination of Sektens experimenting sound space with their strong visual expression is manifestated in the film KLUBBHUS. Together with the young and talented documentary director Sofie Tønsberg, they made an inventive music film that invites the audience into a world sliding between storytelling and sound esthetics.
