Pekka Airaksinen

Pekka Airaksinen is a visionary figure in the Finnish avant-garde music landscape, best known as the founding member of The Sperm, a legendary experimental ensemble from the 1960's, a precursor of what could be called noise underground of the

The Goodiepal Equation (a film by Sami Sänpäkkilä)

“The longer and further a message travels over space and time, the more value it adds to its content.”

The Goodiepal Equation documentary film reveals a small part of Goodiepal’s personality and mystery, portraying Goodiepal himself as

Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh

Longtime member of Cian Nugent’s band The Cosmos, Circuit Des Yeux and Woven Skull, Dublin based viola player Ailbe Nic Oireachtaigh sets out a solo path of minimalist viola adventures that are raw, psychedelic and spiritual. Her debut tape on the ever


This long running german collective easily steeple chase over psychedelic kraut jams, french pop music, library tunes and genuine experimentation. Their music comes from a parallel universe in which the 80s, 90s, the interweb, individualism and digital

Goodiepal & Pals

Goodiepal & Pals is a refugee organisation disguised as a contemporary Tek-Rock-Band — conducted by Faroese / European-master trickster: The Goodiepal. All the money that band makes goes straight, to stranded refugees — on the outskirts of the Euro

Pierre-Jean Croset

We wrote in The Avant-Guardian n° 10: ‘The Exotic is a Strage Thing’.

The music of French musicologist, composer and instrument builder Pierre-Jean Croset is a perfect example o

Het Interstedelijk Harmonium Verbond

A collaboration of four striving forces within the Belgian avant-garde scene. Hellvete, DSR Lines, Edgar Wappenhalter and Ameel Brecht are the untranslatable ‘Het Interstedelijk Harmoniumverbond’. This quartet has a simple, but genuine mission: maximal

Kali Malone

This young American composer is one of the rising stars in analogue drone music, blending the fine art of Buchla synthesis with the lower end of acoustic just intonation. Her most recent LP Cast of Mind is a brutal take on the minimalist tradi

Gwenifer Raymond

Yes, this young fine lady plays acoustic guitar… and yes, there is definitely a clear line to the Jack Rose and John Fahey heritage in her American Primitive instrumentals. But Raymond assimilates this tradition of old ragtime blues with style, splendo

75 Dollar Bill & Friends

In past times a duo, and now a quintet excels in a very simple and straight forward concept: a microtonal guitar, a self-built wooden rhythmn box, some Mauritanian guitar mastery and primal rhythm ‘n’ blues drumming. 75 Dollar Bill is our favorite guit

Cüneyt Sepetçi

Istanbul is historically a multi layered and complex crossing point of cultures, warped by bizarre historically twists and turns. The city is a labyrinth, blending Eastern and European traditions into new forms of arts and partying. In this epicenter b

Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers

Voodoo is seriously misconceived as a set of black magic, dark rituals, wizardry, dolls and other stupid clichés — (mis)informed by racist and colonialist thinking. In reality, it is a deep spiritual way of life, all about friendship and sharing. Not b

Joeri Chipsvingers

Comes to you with great news, his orange-red fingertips are shining like never before!  So forget that horrible gossip, spread by jealous scum on rainy Saturdays in your local supermarket. He is still having many adventures, wild, tacky, boring, intell

Radio Roeien met Riemen

RRMR founding brothers will build bridges during the concerts and also take care of the afterparty with a DJ set full of emo-economically responsible songs. Expect a soft landing that affects you in your social security, on the balance between sterile
