Edgars Cirulis is a latvian composer, improviser, arranger and pianist, currently based in Aalborg, Denmark.

His music studies began at age 3, when his parents bought him a toy keyboard. The initial doodling eventually evolved into a more serious study of classical piano repertoire and technique and later - improvised music and composition studies.

 

Edgars’ musical and creative development has been flowing through many different genres, styles and mediums. At first influenced by jazz musicians and composers, his path has now led him into exploring contemporary classical music and modernist art. His interests range from reconstructing well known forms and idioms and bringing the key elements out in an unconventional manner to researching music that connects with a deeper, more emotional understanding of the world - music that comes from our heritage.

His motivation is to bring the unknown in the familiar, and the familiar in the unknown.

 

Edgars is working and writing for many different ensembles and constellations.

AISMA - an innovative, narrative driven ensemble that will record and perform an original story/fairytale written by Edgars Cirulis and Janis Locmelis.

Ainavisti - his initial ensemble, with which he released his debut album “-”.

Equanimity Trio - a trio from Latvia, where he explores the sounds of nordic chamber-jazz

Skagerrak - a local ensemble from Aalborg, where he works together with Kenneth Dahl Knudsen (bass), Matias Fischer-Mogensen (drums), Uffe Markussen (tenor sax) and Jonas Lindh (trombone). The ensemble represents the culture and people of the North Jutland - Denmark.

 

Edgars has performed with musicians and artists such as: Kenneth Dahl Knudsen, Julia Silvera, Ahto Abner, Evilena Protektore, Jānis Rubiks, Staņislavs Judins, Beāte Zviedre and others.

 

He has also studied with Soren Moller, Raimonds Petrauskis, Andris Dzenītis, Dave Berkman, Liudas Mockunas and others.

 

Edgars is currently working on the writing and recording of AISMA Book II as well as a Concerto for Piano and Bongos.
