An evening at KRETS with a bird theme. The evening will bring you three concerts in the sprit of feathered creatures – with Jasper TX, Ronnie Sundin and Anders Dahl – plus an exhibition with related images. The exhibition includes illustrations from Wolfgang Müller’s book and record Séance Vocibus Avium, a project which tries to re-create the sounds of eleven extinct bird species, released by Fang Bomb in 2008 – as well as an alter by Thomas Ekelund, artist and musician (Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words, Dead Violets, Teeth) from Gothenburg.
About the artists:
Jasper TX is Dag Rosenqvist, one of the most prominent and interesting artists within the dreamy and guitar-based drone scene, with a unique hint of pop. Jasper TX recently released his fifth acclaimed album, Singing Stones, on Fang Bomb.
Ronnie Sundin is a Malmö-based musician, illustrator and artist. His carrier started in the early 90s, in the aftermath of industrial music – back then as noise musician under the moniker Bad Kharma, often in collaboration with Lasse Marhaug. Soon his focus shifted towards more quite domains and in 2002 the fanzine Fat Bankroll appointed him “Sweden’s most quiet man”. Now, after several low-keyed years, he has found his way back to noise music, which is proved by the album Seven Year Silence, released by Fang Bomb. Earlier this year, the first issue of Sundin’s Very Friendly – a cartoon magazine filled with stories about his own musical history as well as the history of electronic music in general – was released by Komplott.
Anders Dahl shares his name with one of Linnés more prominent students, lives on a farm in Skårve, runs the label Bombax Bombax and was given the Manifest Award in 2008 for his record Doorbells (in the category art music/experimental). The jury’s motivation was: “With music that gets its oxygen from the nature, from the organic, from the tiny stories, from the analog world, small movements are created that develop into a powerful and rich musical weave. Here, the spontaneous meets the carefully articulated, and here tradition meets innovation”.
