Hans, whose guitar has been seized, carried away from its familiar territories and reconstructed elsewhere, and the tightly woven drum-loops by Satoshi join forces to explore ethereal yet roughly sewn soundscapes and multi-cultural rhythms. At their most monastic and sonically attenuated, they carefully play almost nothing, but these passages inevitably progress into whispered dialogues of miniaturised, truncated instrumental gestures, with both rebounding sounds back and forth, building up to protean statements and frenetic interplay.
We are very excited to be having Hans and Satoshi performing during this evening.
New sounds, freely originated from silence, texturally organized. AswimA (swim this) is a trio that spontaneously generates a world of intensely focused and evocative improvised music. The group creates a visceral and deep listening experience where no moment is lost, and each sound is projected with maximum momentum and razor sharp clarity.
