A trance-inducing night of music combining electronic minimalism, homemade instruments, percussion heavy and danceable improvisation, psychedelic dobro and much musical mischief in general.

Anders Lauge Meldgaard: A founding member of the yoyooyoy collective, which also includes Yoke & Yohs, Lights People, Johns Lunds, Stof, Havens Fugle, and other projects. He is part of Slütspürt, co-founder of the eclectic big band Den Nørrejyske Ø’s Stororkester For Opløst Mønster Musik and has performed at the Roskilde Festival, Jazzjuice Festival, Transmediale Festival and toured Europe, USA and Japan. In 2010 Meldgaard released, as his solo project Frisk Frugt, the album “Dansktoppen møder Burkina Faso i det himmelblå rum hvor solen bor, suite” leading to great critical and audience acclaim, including a nomination for the Nordic Music Prize in 2011. His latest release is "Musik for seks elektriske guitarer", released on LP in late 2012. http://www.yoyooyoy.dk/friskfrugt.htm

"the musical equivalent of running along a beach wearing a grin and a garland of big flowers"
-The Wire


Martin Vognsen: Guitarist/composer and co-founder of the Denmark/Japan-based micro label Jvtlandt. Currently plays out many of his musical fantasies under the moniker Scataw (State Changes According To A Wind), and has played with Katsura Yamauchi, Yasuhiro Yoshigaki (Emergency), Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple), Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Musik For Seks Elektriske Guitarer, a. o. http://www.martinvognsen.com

-The Jazz Man


Muneomi Senju: Former member of legendary Japanese band Boredoms, including the period of the 2007 Europe tour, Senju is also an experienced solo performer and current member of PARA, led by ex-Boredoms guitarist Seiichi Yamamoto. Senju was also part of the eccentric pop group Urichipangoon and has performed with Otomo Yoshihide, Merzbow, Damo Suzuki, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, DoraVideo, as well as many other key members of the Japanese music scene. http://www.muneomisenju.com

Iku Sakan: Experimental sound performer, improvisor and DJ from Osaka, Japan currently based in Berlin, Germany. Since 2009, he has performed in Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, UK, Mexico, Malaysia, China & Japan, including important festivals in Europe as a member of several bands, such as All Tomorrows Parties in UK (with Maher Shalal Hash Baz) and Avantgard Festival in Germany (organised by Krautrock legends Faust, with Meeting of the Spirits). Iku Sakan explores music as 'Myth-Science' by combining computer processing, prepared recordings with a range of sounding objects (such as mini-masserger, measure & oscilator). He has collaborated, played with Frisk Frugt, Michael Northam, Muneomi Senju, Chie Mukai, Butchy Fuego, Kakawaka and others. http://www.soundcloud.com/ikusakan

Musik For Seks Elektriske Guitarer: The idea for the guitar sextet sprung while Meldgaard was traveling through Mali and Burkina Faso and encountering the local music. Much impressed by the simplicity, discipline and tightly knit collaboration of the musicians he witnessed, Meldgaard decided to explore a similar strategy for the electric guitar. The result takes minimal compositions, based on extended repetition and microscopic - yet danceable - grooves, as a departure point for climactic improvisations. Invoking, perhaps, as much the minimalism of Steve Reich as the cathartic rhythms of Konono No. 1, approaching even progressive psychedelia.
“Music For Six Electric Guitars” premiered at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival in 2010 and has since toured both Japan and Germany, as well as giving various appearances in Denmark. Gathering a team of highly respected guitarists from the Danish avant-garde and rock scenes, Meldgaards music is interpreted by a towering amount of talent from groups such as Pinkunoizu, Kalle del Hey, Scataw, Skammens Vogn, Joy L, Lily Electric, Shiggajon and others. http://www.jvtlandt.com/releases/musik-for-seks-elektriske-guitarer/
