Pygméteatern / Vasastan

lör 9 jun kl 20.00 – AVSLUTAD

MoE (NO) 
Guro Skumsnes Moe: Bass/Vokal
Joakim Heibø Johansen: Trommer
Håvard Skaset: Gitar/Synth/Vokal

The Norwegian band MoE is known for mixing their minimalistic compositions with alternative and experimental approaches that fails to fit in the rock genre. MoE’s palette is composed of a multitude of expressions which catalyses into a highly charged and viscid sound. Executed with a profound presence, spontaneous energy and dedication. Many influences have been pointed out, and descriptions are sometimes close to contradictory; “MoE is like Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid meets Napalm Death dressed up like very early Swans.” Meaning MoE don’t care about genres.

MoE har med sin fascinerende og eksplosive tilstedeværelse tatt publikum med storm over store deler av verden, og har de siste årene vært mer aktive utenfor landets grenser. Med sin særegne blanding av noise og rock, ispedd improvisasjon og tilløp til performance, er bandet viden kjent for å levere varene rett hjem enten man bor i Malaysia eller Mexico. Bandet har av en eller annen grunn blitt sammenlignet med få andre, og har heller ikke vært så opptatt av det, men noen ganger visker godt voksne folk forsiktig SWANS i det de rusler rolig hjem med en bunke LP'er under hånda.

REBECCA DIGBY (SE)
Rebecca Digby ses ibland uppträda under namnet Mole Says Hi. Hon var också del av neo no wave-trion UFOFBI och har en master från Kungliga Konsthögskolan i Stockholm. De senaste åren har hon intresserat sig för digitala bilders sociala potential och ägnat sig åt performativa samarbeten mellan sig själv och sin digitala version. Ibland har de ett band ihop.

Framträdandet på KROCH blir premiär för en konsert där digitala naturupplevelser bokstavligen används som musikaliska instrument. Den undersöker det mänskliga behovet av att ordna, dramatisera och humanisera naturfenomen, samt den poetiska tendensen att använda dem som redskap och spegel i forskningen om sig själv.

DAICHI YOSHIKAWA-FINN LOXBO-JOHAN ARRIAS (JP/SE)

DAICHI YOSHIKAWA is a Japanese sound artist based in London and Berlin. A former participant of workshops organised by AMM co-founder Eddie Prevost and sound artist David Toop, Yoshikawa's distinct sound comes from feedback systems generated between homemade assemblages of speakers, contact microphones, and various found objects. Developing his ability as an improviser through years of attendance at Prevost’s weekly workshops, Yoshikawa is singularly unique in his facility to wield electronic feedback as an instrument capable of both dialogic potential and genuine musicality in a group setting. Combining the collaborative sensitivity of a player like Toshimaru Nakamura with a techno and noise-derived penchant for enamel-peeling feedback tones and lurching metallic rhythms, Yoshikawa’s electroacoustic practice creates brutalist landscapes of sound from the space between noise and silence. Yoshikawa is also part of the ensemble lll人, a London-based group with Seymour Wright and Paul Abbott, and has collaborated with Joel Grip, Antonin Gerbal, Samo Kutin, Lee Patterson and Rie Nakajima.

FINN LOXBO är gitarrist med fokus på improvisationsmusik och experimentell rock. Utöver solokonserter och spelningar med akustiska konstellationer bl a i duos tillsammans med Anders Vestergaard, Karin Johansson och Lisa Ullén, spelar han även i band som Strändernas Svall och Doglife samt är tidigare medlem i Fire! Orchestra.

JOHAN ARRIAS is a saxophone and clarinet player active in the field of improvised, experimental and contemporary music. He works with deconstructing and fragmenting the traditional ways of playing his instrument with extended techniques and preparation, regarding sound as an autonomous matter. When composing music he moves freely from traditional to graphic notation and concepts. - He collaborates with musicians such as Tisha Mukarji, Angharad Davies, Tetuzi Akiyama, Axel Dörner, Derek Shirley, Kai Fagaschinski, Lucio Capece, Audrey Chen, Anna Lindal, David Stackenäs, Christer Bothén, Nina de Heney, Jonatan Liljedahl, Lisa Ullén, Henrik Olsson, Emil Strandberg and more. He has toured Sweden, Norway, South Africa, USA, Poland, UK, Germany, Romania and released records on labels such as MonotypeRec, Headspin Recordings, Crazy Wisdom, Jahr null Aufnahmen and his own ausculto fonogram.
