SQ (Sound Quartet) explores music inaccessible to contemplative composition. Devoting many hours to develop skills which circumvent learning and amplify responses to the moment. Each piece is a sortie into uncertainty along paths never followed before, with assiduous unpremeditation and susceptibility of mind and body as our guides. States far from equilibrium can branch on barely perceptible quantum quivers to sublime and unexpected trajectories, even a false step can open a new passage if grasped as a sign. We hope the listeners will come along and find the journeys rewarding. Live visuals will be provided by Viktor Zeidner of Deadpixel. http://soundquartet.se/
Thomas Bjelkeborn is a sound artist, electronic musician and acousmatic composer from Sweden. He is also a curator for the PUSH festival and Club Lamour in Gävle and Stockholm. He has performed at many electroacoustic and electronic festivals on all continents.
Paul Pignon has been playing and composing music of almost every kind for nearly 60 years, physics degree, pioneer in EAM. First foray into non-idiomatic improvisation in 1962 (Oxford). Has lived about equally in the UK, Yugoslavia and Sweden.
