The G·Bop Orchestra is an international and critically acclaimed experimental percussion ensemble based in Copenhagen. Led by percussionist and composer Greta Eacott, the band has gone on to release three e.ps, their debut album punctuations in space (recorded in One Take in various nonstudio settings) and toured in UK and Scandinavia, with a flexible line-up featuring different combinations of players from across Europe. Their high tension acoustic live shows bring fresh and abstract musical ideas together with a clarity and direction, making the g·bop orchestra as at home touring with a pop band as they are in an art gallery. The G·Bop Orchestra is currently performing as a ‘six drummer formation’. Birthed from the Copenhagen underground scene, this formation brings together six highly individual percussionists and drummers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Poland and the UK – who perform deeply original percussion music which seeks to expose and expand on our current scope for rhythmic pleasures.
