With an extremely limited number of tickets available, Robin will be performing a brand new and intimate set especially created for this event. Robin Rimbaud, alias Scanner is a composer whose work traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space and image, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways, connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres.

Sindre Bjerga experiments with collaging sound from found cassettes, dictaphone machines, contact-mics and repurposed children’s toys.
Experimental / psychedelic drone / collage music from Norway. I have been touring all over Europe, also Russia, Ukraine, Argentina and Japan for many years and have released close to 200 records on labels all over the world. I also run the Gold Soundz label ( www.hifiallergy.wordpress.com)
“Majestic balance burns through damaged synapse. Entrancing electro-acoustic scratch, long form isolationism and cavernous tape-drone meditation from Sindre Bjerga, who should need no introduction after his prolific string of releases on various labels across the underground spectrum”
“What remains consistent from one release to the next is a sense of personality. Whatever sub-sub-sub genre he happens to be working in – space-drone, gurglecore, dictaphonics, others of his own devising – he imbues it with an engaging, informing intelligence. Playful, unafraid to meander, yet always attentive, thought through and sharp when it needs to be.” – Rob Hayler, Radio Free Midwich
“A very fine piece of electro-acoustic music, not highly refined – in fact: far from it – but a rather personal touch from this great Norwegian guy. Very nice indeed. Catch this guy playing when it he is in your area.” – Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly

Amsterdam based musician and trained drummer Sietse van Erve (Orphax) was introduced to electronic music in the early nineties. He started researching new sounds and new ways of working. Always with an organic touch, often incorporating sounds that would be regarded by others as errors or mistakes, Sietse found his way into drone and microtonal music. The goal of his music is for the listener to lose the sense of time and place.
