Elggren, Leif / Joachim Nordwall: Prepresence (Confront)

Label: Confront    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Recorded live in concert at iDEALFEST, Fylkingen, Stockholm on February 28th 2011. Heavy, lo-fi, monster drone set, featuring two of Sweden's most engaging performers. Sounds generated from the combination of electric hair clippers and analogue synthesiser are amplified, smashed and ground to a pulp, reformed and catapulted into the stars."-Confront

Leif Elggren (born 1950, Linköping, Sweden), is a Swedish artist who lives and works in Stockholm. Active since the late 1970s, Leif Elggren has become one of the most constantly surprising conceptual artists to work in the combined worlds of audio and visual. A writer, visual artist, stage performer and composer, he has many albums to his credits, solo and with the Sons of God, on labels such as Ash International, Touch, Radium and his own Firework Edition. His music, often conceived as the soundtrack to a visual installation or experimental stage performance, usually presents carefully selected sound sources over a long stretch of time and can range from mesmerizingly quiet electronics to harsh noise. His wide-ranging and prolific body of art often involves dreams and subtle absurdities, social hierarchies turned upside-down, hidden actions and events taking on the quality of icons.

Joachim Nordwall is a sound creator, a member of The Skull Defekts. Label head at iDEAL Recordings. Festival and concert organizer. He is the program Curator at Folk and Music Supervisor at The Broadcast Society, and has programmed for Nefertiti Jazz Club and Fylkingen.
