Serikon is the Greek word for silk and represents the pure, white silken thread that can be dyed in different colours and used to create new, complexly patterned weavings. The name is a metaphor for the pure and simple melody that is “coloured” and used to weave complex music. It also raises associations about how music has spread across the world, how a simple melody can be traced from land to land. Serikon was founded 2009 by trombonist Daniel Stighäll and the ensembles aim is to be able to affect and influence its audience to feel that they can help to improve the world, by using some of the best music that was ever written, some that cannot be notated and some that hasn’t been composed yet.
Founded by trombonist Daniel Stighäll, Serikon is an ensemble with an aim to renew historical music through improvisation and through newly written music for historical instruments and singers.
