The orchestra Ornithopter takes it’s name after a flying-machine, that makes is’t way through the sky by flapping it’s wings like a bird. The orchestra is known for is’t beautiful sounding themes that also works as guidelines for the solos. The music has it’s roots in the sound of the great improvisator, Ornette Coleman. But the music can also make you fell like taking a trip to New Orleans, where the wild untamed brass sounds and the blues comes from.
In 2014 the Ornithopter orchestra made their critical acclaimed debut album “Ornithopter,” Now in 2018 the band is out with a new record called “Tordenkaffe” (translated “Thundercoffee”)

“Tordenkaffe” was recorded on the island of Fanø. Fanø is located outside the town of Esbjerg. The sound engineer was Anders Ørbæk and all the recordings where done live in “Musikken Hus” (translated “House of Music”) in the town of Sønderho. Tordenkaffe was the coffee people drank to keep themselfs awake, to make sure that lightning didn’t strike the old thatched houses. The name came to us naturally after the long sessions in the old house. The sound of the creaking floorboards and the echo of the rooms, takes the listener into the nights where people waited for lightning to strike. It is also permitted, maybe even imposed, to drink a strong cop of coffee whilst listening to the record.
The cover is made by Astrid Jaekel. The inspiration for the cover came from the local arts and surroundings on Fanø, and we think that her pictures frames the music perfectly.
