ARTIST INFO

SAM ASHLEY



Sam Ashley's invention of an experimental trance-mysticism has been a lifelong endeavor, and his art always reflects or incorporates, in some way, this unique mysticism. He has created and performed many original music, performance art and other, more abstract compositions that express this contemporary "shamanism", several of which--including the early pieces Seeing Things (1981) and How To Make Things Go Away (1979)--have had many performances around the US and abroad. Two current works-in-progress, Everyone Laughed When I Sat Down At The Piano and Happy As Can Be (expected)!, feature genuine spirit possession as performance. The essence of his life, then, is the artistic application of an innovative approach to mysticism.

AUDREY CHEN



Audrey Chen's work delves into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling. A large component of her music is improvised and her approach to this is extremely personal and visceral. Her playing explores the combination and layering of the homemade analog synthesizer, preparations and traditional and extended techniques in both the voice and cello. She works to join these elements into a singular ecstatic personal language.

HENRIK MUNKEBY NØRSTEBØ



Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø is a Norwegian trombonist working mostly within contemporary fields of music. An ambiguous relationship with the trombone has led him to explore both the boisterous and brassy side of the instrument, as well as it’s counterpoint in microscopic and ‘electronic’ sound possibilities. Utilizing a wide spectrum of playing techniques, from pure long tones to noise and the almost inaudible, he often works balancing the intuitive with the precisely constructed.

He recently moved to Berlin to continue his practice of this venerable Indian tradition with Cuni. His collaborations include projects with A Group Multimedia, Planeta Terra, Robert Miles, Amelia Cuni, Werner Durand, KV5, Dalata and Inconsolable Ghost.
