When we started to rehearse this part for a one hour concert next Saturday we only had written down some notes on a paper, on the whole it said that Sol should sing or make different noises with her voice and Johannes would capture that in realtime and make isorythmic patterns and blend that with different electricity sounds (static, short circuits, hum and so on). All of a sudden Sol started to sing a Nat King Cole classic and Johannes accompanied that with some humming electricity and a deep sinus wave, we liked it so we decided to put that into the set. This is the third take, a couple of more rehearsals and we’ll have this thing figured out!
See you Saturday and don’t forget your sleeping bag, breakfast included!
We had a great time last night, thanks to all who showed up and thanks for all nice words after the concert!
For our Swedish friends, last sunday SR P2 (Swedish public service radio) aired a one hour documentary about Sol and her work as a artist, music and composer. You can listen to it online until the end of May and hopefully we get the right to publish it our self after that.
We’ll be playing at Fylkingen this wednesday. It’s the club Anonyma Alkemister who’ve e set up a crazy party where our music actually might fit, it’s the perfect blend. Check out the other two bands, Karpis and ÅBE2, and see if you agree. This will be fun, see you there!
Sol is working with an ambisonic + mono piece called “In Memoria”, the mono thing will be a single speaker playing a monolog by a man so the speaker represent the man himself so to say. Sol wanted the speaker to be old or at least look old. We found these vintage speakers and bought them just because Sol liked the look of them (well, me too). The thing was that neither of us expected the speaker to actually sound good but both of us looked at each other when we tried it realising that this was a great set of speakers. After rebuilding them a little bit to fit in Sol’s piece I couldn’t resist to measure the frequency response, and even if I did the measure in our boomy living room with loads of standing waves the response is pretty impressive.
We’ll be using these as yet another great reference speaker, probably in Sol’s studio. Now we just need the time and the money to do the acoustic treatment. Our next EP will sound great!
The wait is over, our EP Noll Kåll is now available at our Bandcamp store, get it while it’s hot!
Yep, we’re working to get the festival happening july 2013.
Tomorrow night we have our first pre-party evening called Norberg Modul. Here’s the lineup and all other stuff you need to know.
We’ll be jamming with sounds from Stockholm tonight at Kulturhuset as part of the project Oljud Stockholm. We’ll start to jam sometime around 18:30 – 19:00 and will jam for about 30 min, the evening will start with a discussion about city noise at 17:00.
Here’s a short excerpt from a jam rehearsal, it might sound like this… or not… it’s a jam session after all.
