​Tortusa/Breistein – 12 April 2018

By Anton  //  Performances  //  No Comments

This month’s special guests are ​Tortusa/Breistein, a norwegian duo consisting of electronic musician Tortusa and saxophonist Inge W. Breistein.

The music has an electronic-experimental sound and refers to genres such as electronica, nordic jazz, ambience and minimalism. Compositions and larger improvised sections blends together through rhythmic repetition, harmonic textures, ambience and strong melodies.

A majority of the sound is recorded live by Bishop and manipulated on the spot, creating a very live and fresh concert. Bishop records Breistein´s saxophone with various software and hardware and transforms the sound into something new.

About The Noise Upstairs

The Noise Upstairs is an improv collective which runs a free-improv night in Manchester. The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and hearts broken.
