Hess Is More

Profile:
Hess Is More started as a solo project for Danish musician Mikkel Hess, and has over the years developed into a circular transatlantic ensemble including musicians from Copenhagen, New York and Berlin.

Hess Is More has released 9 albums and a bunch of EP’s and singles – music sounding in a borderland between jazz, kraut, electronica, pop, folk and more.

Hess Is More has a long tradition of interdisciplinary collaborations, including music for ballet, art installations and more. This ongoing interest in integrating music with other art forms has lately been expressed in our concert series entitled “Apollonian Circles”. (More info in the menu of this website).

Bandleader Mikkel Hess is also a prolific composer for film and theatre.
