Jacob Faurholt (DK) and Man meets bear (CA)

Danish songwriter Jacob Faurholt has released four solo albums between 2005 – 2012, the latest Dark Hours, was released in Germany through Raw Onion Records in July. Dark Hours was well received and the English site Drowned In Sound wrote the following: “Jacob Faurholt instantly transports the listener to the sort of gothic Americana hinterland that has been populated by the likes of Will Oldham and Sparklehorse.” Faurholt moved to Berlin in 2010, and has since played more than 50 shows in Germany. He has also played support jobs for Grizzly Bear, The Black Heart Procession, The Handsome Family, and fellow danes Efterklang. Faurholt is also active with his psych pop band Crystal Shipsss.

BORN OF SIX: AMELIA CUNI / CATHERINE CHRISTER HENNIX / WERNER DURAND / STEFAN TIEDJE

Amelia Cuni – solo voice
Catherine Christer Hennix – drone voice
Werner Durand – invented wind instruments, drones
with Stefan Tiedje – sound

BORN OF SIX comes out of the traditions of Dhrupad, Early Minimalism and Just Intonation.

„A solid foundation is the best basis for the fundamental“

Narada´s Exposition of the seven notes begins as follows: Because sadja (the Tonic) arises from the combination of nose, throat, chest, palate, tongue, and teeth, it is known as „six-born“.

Catherine Christer Hennix, born 1948 in Stockholm, is an artist, poet, composer, and philosopher with a strong interest in logic, the foundations of mathematics, and formal music theory. Hennix began her musical studies in the 1960s, paying particular attention to the music of Iannis Xenakis and Karlheinz Stockhausen. She pursued studies with Hindustani raga master Pandit Pran Nath in the 1970 and has been a key protagonist in the Manhattan Downtown School along with La Monte Young and Henry Flynt, with whom she shared a number of collaborations that led both to coin the term HESE (“Hallucinogenic Ecstatic Sound Environment”) to aptly describe their scientifically systematic quest for ecstatic states of consciousness.

Amelia Cuni is a singer, composer and performer. She has trained her voice and musical skills in India, according to the tradition of DHRUPAD singing and KATHAK dance. Her present work includes contemporary music and multimedia collaborations with several artists of international repute. She is engaged in the transmission of the knowledge she has acquired from her gurus and teaches Indian singing at the Vicenza Conservatory in Italy. She is based in Berlin.

Werner Durand  performs his own music for saxophones, iranian ney, and self-made wind instruments since the late seventies. He studied with Ariel Kalma in Paris, Indian classical music in India and Berlin (with Kamalesh Maitra) and Iranian ney with Ali Reza Asgharia. He started to build wind instruments out of plexi-glass and PVC in the early 80s, which led to the foundation of THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE in 1990.

Eye jazz: Visual Exhibit by HLG, live music by Aidan Baker

“Jazz is based on freedom; you start with one line and keep inventing as you go along…” E.D

HLG specializes in meditative free-form ornaMENTAL drawings, but he also dabbles in screen printing, painting and tattooing.  The bending of the Self that comes from collaborations with other like-minded artists is something he thrives on. He doesn‘t live in Sweden anymore.
