bio

Since early 2000's él-g has splitted his homebrain in different rooms and floors.
Most of his efforts are concentrated in pop tunnels, electronic hallucinations and
outer space spoken words: After years based on strings and organs compositions,
these last three years has been focused on the use of synthesizers, electronic
devices, hypnotic spirales and melted-Esperanto voices. él-g is also the half of
Opéra Mort with Jo T and one third of "Reines d'Angleterre" with Ghédalia
Tazartès and Jo T.

HELM

bio

Luke Younger is a Sound Artist and experimental musician based in London,
working with a vast array of revolving instrumentation and abstract sound sources.

Working under the moniker of Helm, Younger's compositions build a dense aural
landscape that touches on musique concrete, uncomfortable sound poetry, noise, and
hallucinatory drones. His most recent LP for the Kye label, Cryptography, presents
a five-part suite of expertly rendered electro-acoustic study which uses processed
piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and broken guitar strings. Younger creates a world where
these instruments morph into spectral rust, a shimmering klang swims alongside
passive noise and the relationship between acoustic and electronic derived sounds
forms a solid foundation. This sound is steered through a melange of fringe
territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling
walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in a post-industrial fashion with a
commitment to homemade exploratory zeal.

For the past ten years, Younger has also performed extensively in Europe and the US
with Steven Warwick as pioneering avant-drone duo Birds of Delay. This has seen the
duo sharing stages and bills with a variety of groups and artists such as Sonic
Youth, Emeralds, Pain Jerk, Jonathan Meese, Wolf Eyes, The Skaters, The Ex. They
have also published recordings on a number of underground labels such as American
Tapes, Ultra Eczema, Nashazphone and Hospital Productions.

TOMUTONTTU

bio

Tomutonttu is a creature who looks after all the dust. Jan Anderzen is a Tampere
based artist who rearranges images and sounds and makes the music of Tomutonttu
audible. Read streams, mutilated voices, groovy animal noises and records other
people have made are some of the ingredients Anderzen uses to mold his ecstatic
music. Someone described it like this: a confusing close-up of music, a microcosmos
of strange sound events and dirt flying around in stereo space, interacting with a
logic all of their own. Jan Anderzen is also the leader of the band Kemialliset
Ystävät and one of the most recognized Finnish experimental music makers. He's
actively performing around the world and his discography is a labyrinth reflecting
the nature of his art.
