Skaņu Mežs Festival Reviewed

English: Peter Brötzmann, moers festival 2010

Squarepusher, Peter Brötzmann, James Holden, and Zs more or less make up the headline acts, with Norway’s low key songstress Susanna Wallumrød thrown in for good measure, but it’s what happens on the fringes that really make this sort of festival. Curation is perhaps the defining art form of the modern era, and what with the popularity of experimental music, the fringes are getting pushed further and further to the side, so it’s no small task.
