ASHES TO SOUND

17.11.2019

Specificity, complexity, consistency and GROOVE.

ASHES TO SOUND is a one-time-only music event with
ASHER TUIL (US)
ILPO VÄISÄNEN (FI)
YOANN DURANT (FR).

Whilst itself remaining a self-evident singularity, ASHES TO SOUND claims music to be constitutive to how we see, touch, move and think.

NOV 17TH 5 – 8 PM AT THE HALL IN FARSTA
Address: Mårbackagatan 11, Farsta

ASHER TUIL (US)

Asher has worked in collaboration with artists such as Richard Garet, Jason Kahn, Christopher McFall, Brendan Murray, Ubeboet and Zimoun. Recordings of Asher’s have been released by CONV, Homophoni, Leerraum, Sourdine and elsewhere.

ILPO VÄISÄNEN (FI)
Together with Mika Vainio, Ilpo Väisänen was part of the Finnish duo Pan Sonic, one of the most ground-breaking and innovating projects in contemporary electronic music. In a musical form in which sequencing and recording music using computers is standard, the group was known for recording everything live, straight to DAT (Digital Audio Tape) using home-made and modified synthesizers and effect units. In December 2009 their split was announced, and Mika and Ilpo continued with their own solo projects.

Ilpo’s former releases on his own label Kangaroo, a sub-label of Raster-Noton, have clearly shown his personal affinity with dub music. Apart from that he is also playing some kind of free-form noise with a tendency to drone with Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM) in the duo Angel / Die Angel with the latest outcome: “Entropien I” on the Berlin based label Cosmo Rhythmic. Ilpo Väisänen is equally working on his solo productions, often under his alias I-LP-O In Dub.

He leads his solo saxophone project, acoustic and processed, electronics works and his band S U N (pop, soul, electronic) in collaboration with Sunna Ardal. Other collaborations include works made for choreographers Cristina Caprioli, Benjamin Vandewalle, and La Substance but in English –– that are performed at MoMA PS1 (US), Moderna Museet (SE), Manchester International Festival (UK), and Kaaitheater (BE), amongst other places.
