MICRO MODULAR QUARTET

The Micro Modular Quartet is an ensemble built around a small piece of legacy hardware called: The Micro Modular synthesizer. Inside the red box anything can happen. All of the basic building blocks for synthesis are made available to the user. The little red box has been a trusted companion for Drone, Noise and new music makers for over a decade. The Micro Modular Quartet have chosen to write and perform music with this particular piece of hardware for its focusing paradigm both in terms of timbre and control.


STHLM DRONE SOCIETY

DUFWA

Mats Erlandsson and Maria W Horn meet as Dufwa in heavy synthesis and intricate digital processing. Dufwa’s debut release, Fältinspelningar från Terres de l’Ebre (Field recordings from Terres de I’Ebre), defies the standard conception one might have about field recording music. Dufwa scrapes the natural source-bonding from their collected insectoid recording and sonically stretches them on a continuum between drone, noise and generative music.

HÄSTKÖTTSKANDALEN

Hästköttskandalen (HKS) is an audiovisual quartet comprised of Swedish and American composers and musicians (Ellen Arkbro, Marta Forsberg, Maria W Horn, Kali Malone, and formerly Elsa Bergman). The music is an array of art rock, slow wave, and neo- psychedelia. The ensemble utilyzes real-time video feedback and analog film manipulation, just intonation, improvisation, and various synthesis methods. A defining characteristic of Hästköttskandalen’s music is the equal union of sound gleaning from acoustic string instruments, electric guitars, and an 8mm projector. Their long musical process reveals layers of harmonics with rotating rhythmical cogs, its colour and iridescence calmly transforming.
