Bagatellen reviews London’s recent Unnamed Music Festival.
Friday night opened with a long, appropriately meandering set from Jamie Coleman (trumpet, objects), Paul Abbott (electronics, homebrew), Ute Kanngiesser (cello) and Grundik Kasyansky (electronics, homebrew). This was another group I was particularly interested in hearing, in large part for my general unfamiliarity with the musicians save for Coleman.

Kasyansky — calmly in his chair — brought in frenetic electronic outbursts, immediately subduing his gear with silence by way of switches and a mixer.
