Viktor Sjöberg (dj+live)

Matmos från San Francisco är en duo som är bl.a. kända som Björks
liveband och att ha gjort grymma inspelningar av operationsljud. Med
senaste album "The Rose Has Teeth In The Mouth of a Beast" (Matador)
befäster de sin position som ett av den elektroniska musikens absoluta
visionärer! Bered er på en m a g i s k konsert.

“These digital-age surrealists have birthed a musical hybrid all their
own” –Alternative Press

The Rose Has Teeth In The Mouth Of A Beast is the new record by San
Francisco duo Matmos. It is a series of "sound portraits" of a pantheon
of people that they admire. A musical attempt at biography, it’s loose
in some places and very literal in others; taken as a suite of
stylistically disparate songs, you get a kind of fractured family
album, a historical pageant. It's at once Matmos’s most melodic and
most conceptual record.

1. Roses and Teeth for Ludwig Wittgenstein (conceptual musique
2. Steam and Sequins for Larry Levan (mutant disco)

Zeena Parkins såg ni kanske på This Is Our Music? Hennes harpa har
bland annat funnits med på Björks senaster turnéer och inspelningar
samt i duo med Ikue Mori för Mego i Wien. På Nefertiti bjuder hon på en
koncentrerad och känslig konsert...

Zeena Parkins, multi-instrumentalist, composer, improvisor, well-known
as a pioneer of the electric harp, has also extended the language of
the acoustic harp with the inventive use of unusual playing techniques,
preparations, and layers of digital and analog processing. Zeena makes
use of anything within reach as a possible tool with which she can
enhance the sonic capabilities of her harps. She accurately describes
her harp as a "sound machine of limitless capacity" and has used,
household objects and hardware store finds, including: alligator clips,
nails, rubber erasers, rubber tubing, felt, bows, metal candy lids,
oversized metal bolts, hair clips, glass jars, discarded strings, as
well as more conventional: leslie cabinets, guitar pedals, and numerous
other digital processing hardware and assorted and varied software



Viktor Sjöberg är en sann visionär, vare sig det gäller akustiska
drones med hans Viktor Sjöberg New Jazz Ensemble eller med hans
söndriga alternativ-hip-hop! I kväll leder han kvällen som dj och med
ett kort liveset kl 20.30! Nyligen kom hans debutalbum på lilla
underbara Kalligrammofon från Öland!
