"As a follow-up of the critically acclaimed debut mini-album 'with sound!' In 2007, here is another adventure in modern music with Glšggerne & Martin Klapper, this time joined by the legendary Eugene Chadbourne (us) on vocals, guitar and banjo. A brutal mix of avantgarde country music and sci-fi noise...

Glšggerne & Martin Klapper is a Danish/Czechoslovakian trio that practices sonic magic. Glšggerne exist in a parallel miniature universe on the edge on reality where 40 kilos of plastic toys, amplified objects and tiny electrical devices are the focal point in a game of life and death. In 2003, Glšggerne befriended the czech artist and toy collector, Martin Klapper, resulting in a collaboration that to this day is still going strong."-Tonometer

Artist Biographies:

"A seemingly endless -- and endlessly eclectic -- series of releases made the innovative guitarist Eugene Chadbourne one of the underground community's most well-known and well-regarded eccentrics. Born January 4, 1954 in Mount Vernon, NY, Chadbourne was raised in Boulder, CO, by his mother, a refugee of the Nazi death camps. At the age of 11, the Beatles inspired him to learn guitar; later exposure to Jimi Hendrix prompted him to begin experimenting with distortion pedals and fuzzboxes. Ultimately, however, he became dissatisfied with the conventions of rock and pop, and traded in his electric guitar for an acoustic one, on which he began to learn to play bottleneck blues.

Perhaps Chadbourne's most significant formative discovery was jazz; initially drawn to John Coltrane and Roland Kirk, he later became an acolyte of the avant excursions of Derek Bailey and Anthony Braxton. Despite the huge influence music exerted over his life, however, Chadbourne first studied to become a journalist, but his career was derailed when he fled to Canada rather than fight in Vietnam; only President Jimmy Carter's declaration of amnesty for conscientious objectors allowed the vociferously left-wing Chadbourne to return to the U.S. in 1976, at which time he plunged headlong into the New York downtown music scene. After releasing his 1976 debut, Solo Acoustic Guitar, he began collaborating on purely improvisational music with the visionary saxophonist John Zorn and the acclaimed guitarist Henry Kaiser.

Quickly, Chadbourne carved out a singular style, comprised of equal parts protest music, free improvisation, and avant-garde jazz, topped off with his absurd, squeaky vocals. A complete list of Chadbourne's countless subsequent collaborations and genre workouts is far too lengthy and detailed to exhaustively document, although in the early '80s he garnered some of his first significant attention as the frontman of Shockabilly, a demented rockabilly revisionist outfit which also featured the well-known producer Kramer. Following the group's breakup, Chadbourne turned to his own idiosyncratic brand of country and folk, accurately dubbed LSD C&W on a 1987 release, the same year he joined the members of Camper Van Beethoven for a one-off covers project. In addition, he recorded with artists ranging from Fred Frith and Elliott Sharp to Evan Johns and Jimmy Carl Black, the original drummer in the Mothers of Invention; in between, he continued exploring unique styles inspired by music from the four corners of the globe, all the while issuing a seemingly innumerable string of records, most of them on his own Parachute label."

-All Music (

"Christian Skjødt (b.1980) is a Danish artist who explores the material and aesthetic interrelations between sound, bodies and memory. His installation works deal with the imperceptible. Working site-specific Skjødt sets up autonomous systems out of which immersive and often performative environments emerge. He compiles installations with a laboratory approach in which technical and physical experiments play a central role. Working with sound as primary materiality Skjødts art in many ways bypasses the intellect and 'speaks' directly to the body, reminding us of the direct link between the body, thinking and reality.

The visuals are often minimalist, investigating individual audio-technical principles that 'investigate themselves' and the space they are in. His work is based on the physicist's approach of allowing objects and materials to be what they are. But at the same time Skjødt creates spaces where it is impossible to stand at a distance as a viewer - many of the works function interactively and reactively forcing us to relate to place and time. His works can be seen as witnesses to what we are unable to perceive and the boundary between our sensory apparatus and the materiality of the world.

Besides his solo career he has taken part in numerous collaborations, working interdisciplinary in the fields of composition, installation, theatre, dance and performance. He is also the founder and curator of the vinyl imprint Tonometer, objectifying exploratory sounds and music.

Christian Skjødt currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark, and holds a Master's degree from the Royal Academy of Music in Denmark."
