Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher from Seattle.her solo performances flow easily between improvisation, traditional songs, original compositions, abstraction and lyricism. Her full, textured voice as a cellist is unique, making use of traditional and extended techniques, both reckless and delicate.
Current and former collaborators include Earth, Nirvana, Mirah, Jessika Kenney, Ilan Volkov, Eyvind Kang, Stuart Dempster, David Byrne, Terry Riley, Jherek Bischoff, Malcom Goldstein, Matana Roberts, Trey Gunn and Pat Mastelotto and many others.
Mik Quantius is a German vocal artist, probably best known for his work with Embryo. His vocal range is occasionally comparable to Captain Beefheart and Nick Cave, but don’t expect any other similarities. While performing he uses his voice and body as some kind of weird instrument combined with keyboard and percussion. He shows you the strange beauty and versatility one's voice can have.
Description of concert- One mans vocals and keyboard driven band
Poisonous Frequencies is a sort of power trio, unexpectedly formed last year. Federsel, Petr Vrba and Didi Kern go berserk mixing rock, noise and free improv.
Petr Vrba is discovering the possibilities of electrified trumpet, disguised as electric guitar and Tomáš Procházka aka Federsel is continuing in his search for the most awful electric guitar sound. Didi Kern beats the drum.
Didi Kern appears mainly as a musician in rock, improvised- and electronic music. Playing the drums since childhood, starting in rural marching bands. Since the 90s he is best known for his contributions in bands like Bulbul or Fuckhead; he is founding member of broken.heart.collector and plays with musicians like Philipp Quehenberger, Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, Georg Graewe, Franz Hautzinger etc.
