Double Up - Simon Steen-Andersen

is both a term for a risky but potentially powerful investment/gambling strategy on the stock market or in the casino, and for what you get during happy hours in a bar. In this work, the term is meant to cover a similar range: from the drunken and sloppy but deeply felt sing-along, to the more musical “power of unison” and the potentially rewarding effect of opening up something for reinterpretation and reexperience by distorting or emphasising its different elements or by presenting it in a new context. The form is simply two halves exploring two types of linearity with the same material: the linearity of a trivial narrative and the linearity of the inherent musical qualities in the very same sounding snapshots.
