"I´m interested in the greyzone areas where sound breaks up and transforms into something else. The stretched out feedback just before it feeds or the battle between two frequencies fighting to dominate the aural space. The moment before the vibrating string distorts and the seconds following the release of the huge clusterchord, where energy still hangs in the air.  I like to stretch out and examine “inbetween-moments” and unrecognizable states of being. I guess this translates into the music, but not always in the most obvious fashion, even though it´s definitely informing it. I aim to put light in the cracks, open up a new space, give an experience of transcendence. A journey beyond language and  thinking...ultimately."



 

SIDE EFFECTS  (CD) Blind Mans Band - Christian Rønn, Piano - Claus Poulsen, Bass (Nische 2022)

"På «Side Effects» får vi 11 fritt improviserte «strekk», som uten tvil vil sette sitt preg på den danske frittgående musikken framover." (Jan Granlie, Salt Peanuts)

 

SURVIVING FLIES  (Kassette) Blind Mans Band (Nische 2018)

“Surviving Flies kan anbefales til dem, der savner noget der er vildere end Miles Davis’ Pangea og Dark Magus.” (Niels Overgård, Jazznyt)

 

NAVN  (CD) Christian Rønn / Solo Piano (Nische 2021)

“…highlight Rønn’s qualities as an imaginative and irreverent free-improviser that manages to correspond with the expressive lyricism of Keith Jarret and the uncompromising, free jazz school of Cecil Taylor, but always injecting his own cryptic, poetic voice.

(Eyal Hareuveni, Salt-peanuts.eu)

 

Chordis et Machina  (LP) Christian Rønn / Ikue Mori (Resipiscent/Tonometer 2019)

 

“Endless probing that hooks into your neurons, this album leaves sonic organisms floating around you. Even if that's merely an illusion, the alchemy of Mori and Rønn’s hyperactive stew is very real.” (Marc Masters)

 

“Hos Mori og Rønn er det tværtimod nærværet, der er det kendetegnende…mixet sprudler af nuancer...kærkomment kaotisk…Størstedelen af de fem værker på Chordis et Machina rummer en hjernevridende kompleksitet, der kan takke en helt sublimt mixning for, at alle detaljer træder soleklart frem for lytteren. Der bliver varmet godt op under sanseapparatet, som balancerer lige på kanten af en overophedning.

(Jakob Gustav Winckler, Seismograf.org) (Full Review)   

 

INTOKU INVERSIONS (CD) (Christian Rønn & Bob Bellerue, Anarchy Moon 2022)

“…you can almost hear thunderstorms crackling on the margins…” (Raymond Cummings, The Wire)

 

HEAD¨SPACE  (CD) Randi Pontoppidan & Christian Rønn

“…the good taste of Christian Rønn, playing with chords and timbres, constantly shapeshifting inside a form, like people we meet in our dreams that we can recognize but whose traits are indescribable. Carefully avoiding the clichés of improvised music..is definitely nothing to take for granted, and the two musicians do an amazing job in this regard.”

(Giuseppe Pisano, Passive Aggressive) (Full Review)

 

Battleship Potemkin  (DVD) Score - Christian Rønn & Peter Peter (2009)


6/6 hjerter, Søren Vinterberg, Politiken.

 

“…et hyperenergisk og helt fantastisk stykke arbejde, der hårdt og kontant knalder samtidige filmmusikproduktioner i sænk, som var det joller mod hangarskibe... har ganske enkelt formået at trylle lyden af revolution frem i en stum revolutionfilm, med et soundtrack der stilmæssigt nærmer sig The Dust Brothers' ”Fight Club” og Clint Mansells ”Requiem For a Dream”, men som stadig er helt sit egen.” (Cinemaonline.dk)

 

“…brummende og brølende elektronisk musik, der er decideret moderne i sit udtryk, men som alligevel.... passer forbløffende loyalt til de gamle billeder og flot styrker deres skiftende stemninger.

….højdramatisk og medrivende værk. (Berlingske Tidende)

 

En sjælden synæstetisk totaloplevelse…lige fra første guitarriff til sidste hule trommeslag, en uforlignelig oplevelse. På én gang et angreb på og en leflen for sanserne....
