Theatercaféen, Trøndelag Teater, Prinsens gate 18/20.
Lineup of the evening:
HANDS UP SILVERSPACESUIT
Doors open at 20:00, concerts will commence shortly after.
Hands Up Silverspacesuit works in low-key and often fragile sonic landscapes. Fieldrecordings and soundcollages meets instruments like the banjo and houseorgan. The sounds are manoeuvred and handled by Joakim Blattmann Moldestad, a masters-student at the Art Academy in Trondheim. The project first appeared sometime early 2010 somewhere between the before mentioned art academy and some cottage-walls further south. The live-presentation is constantly changing, at Meta.Morf the project will be accompanied by Greger Stolt Nilsen on visuals.
Killing Fields is Thorbjørn Ottersen. Killing Fields plays capricious electronic impro in a melodic landscape where short stories plays out and creates the backdrop for frameworks, illusions, social pleasuers and diversion. Bob Dylan plays synth, in other words.
Håvard Volden – guitar and electronic devices / Martin Taxt – tuba and sheng
“Two carnivores slowly approach one another, go in and out of sync. Håvard Volden and Martin Taxt explore the nuances between synchronicity and braiding, free improv and form, tension and moments in love. Your pulse will follow.”
Lumisokea plays semi-composed electronic music : not your usual “I prepared-30-loops-and-I’m-playing-them-in-random-order” kind of electronic live performance, but two people developing the music in real-time. Through intense onstage communication, Lumisokea manages to sound like one single meta-instrument, combining the attention to detail and structure of studio-based music with the uncompromising immediacy of improvisation. Adding acoustic layers to their use of digital instruments gives the music a richness in texture rarely found in live performed electronic beat-music. Reflecting its name (“Lumisokea” means “snowblind” in Finnish), a sense of dark introspection pervades the music, which ranges from minimalistic sound sculptures to beat/drone-based, high-intensity walls of sound.
