Elico Suzuki (aka. suzueri) is a Tokyo based sound artist. She studied Fine Art at Musashino Art University in Tokyo and Media Art at the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS) in Ōgaki, Gifu, Japan. Her recent interests have centred on the exploration of the gaps and narrative aspects between the interaction of instruments and particular embodiments, for which she both performs and makes art work - these involve her making complex interfaces with various handmade devices that play with pianos and other instruments . She is also well known as an improvised musician and recent releases include, "Live at Ftarri" with Roger Turner, Tetuzi Akiyama, and Makoto Oshiro (Ftarri, 2016); and "Two Before the Fourth" with Edward Lucas (IKLECTIK, 2017).
Robert Andrew Scott is a chamber composer, improvisor and experimental folk musician exploring collaborative, cross-cultural and intuitive/ritual approaches to music making.
David Moré & Dana Ollestad
After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, being one of the four people that defined an entire musical genre and being the person that other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to…after nearly 37 years, releasing 12 studio albums, multiple live recordings, compilations, live video and two box sets, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards including five Grammy nominations and two Grammy awards, Gold records and other accolades…having his own exhibit in the Smithsonian Institute, gracing hundreds of magazine covers, and even appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the age of David Moré, one of the greatest thrash/ metal/punk bands of this or any age, is coming to an end. David will do one last concert tour around the globe to thank his fans for all the support over the years.
Dana Ollestad's work presents seemingly simple gestures that facilitate experience and encounter to create open-ended structures that may be influenced, but never fully controlled.
Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø (born 1986 in Trondheim, Norway) is a trombonist working mainly within contemporary fields of music. An ambiguous relationship with the trombone has led him to explore both the boisterous and brassy side of the instrument, as well as it’s counterpoint in microscopic and ‘electronic’ sound possibilities. Utilizing a wide spectrum of playing techniques, from pure long tones to noise and the almost inaudible, he often works balancing the intuitive with the precisely constructed.Nørstebø’s time is divided between his regular projects; trios As deafness increases, Lana trio, Whirl (with Tobias Delius) and Nørstebø/Strid/de Heney, duo BEAM SPLITTER (with Audrey Chen), new music ensemble "Aksiom" and the freejazzpop-band "Skadedyr". He is also a member of several project based groups, and have appeared in a myriad of ad hoc settings. Having toured actively since 2010, he has played at clubs and festivals all over Europe, as well as in Russia, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand, Australia, USA, Brazil and Argentina.
Apart from his big range of collaborations, Henrik has been working regularly with solo music since 2007. His debut record was released in 2011, and his second solo record “Melting into foreground” was released on SOFA in november 2015. In addition to numerous other releases, his discography contains duo records with Swedish pianist Rasmus Borg and Austrian sound artist Daniel Lercher.
Educated in improvised music and jazz from the music academies in Gothenburg (BA) and Oslo (MA), he is now based in Norway and Berlin.
