Artist Biographies:

"The Norwegian guitarist Håvard Skaset has been transcending musical borders in countless collaborations spanning from noise, sound based improv to noise rock. A dedicated artist from the Norwegian experimental music scene, whose work is a mix between raw primal sounds and the use of instrumental skills rather than effects.

Apart from his solo work, Skaset's main focus is the acoustic noise group SULT and the noise rock band MoE.The Norwegian trio is known for mixing minimalistic compositions with alternative and experimental approaches that fail to fit in the rock genre. Existing since 2008, MoE has released numerous 7"s and 12"s as well as two albums, before Fysisk Format got the chance to release their third album, "3". "3" was recorded and mixed in two days in Norway's well renown Athletic Sound Studio and features 7 tracks of raw and to-the-point music inspired by the band's far stretching tours through Mexico, Japan, South East Asia, Europe. Over the years MoE have collaborated with musicians and bands such as Okkyung Lee, John Hegre, The Observatory, Arabrot and Lasse Marhaug who, with his many talents, also did the artwork for the album. Loud and violent, they molest their instruments and bring the listener close to a healthy insanity.

His long-term connection to California has resulted in several releases and US tours with groups like Bay/Oslo Mirror Trio and SULT. Sult is an acoustic noise ensemble with members from Oslo and the Bay Area. Their music reflects the noise genre's concern with layers of sonic texture, though completely performed on acoustic instruments. Individual sounds run precariously aside one another as independent streams, and alternately blur into a unified mass.

[...]

Håvard Skaset's discography contains electric as well as acoustic releases with musicians such as Frode Gjerstad, Hild Sofie Tafjord, Guro Skumsnes Moe and Lene Grenager. Skaset has also collaborated with artists like Fred Frith, Ikue Mori, Maja Ratkje, Okkyung Lee, Lasse Marhaug and Jacob Felix Heule. In addition to running the label Conrad Sound, Skaset curates Høyt&Lavt, a festival for borderless music in Oslo."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Bug Incision is proud to be continuing our relationship with the San Francisco tag team of Jacob Heule (also known for his work with Ettrick and Barn Owl) and Tony Dryer. Earlier on in the Bug Incision game, we had the good fortune of releasing these two in conjunction with Jack Wright (bim-14), and also as part of a larger midwest-based ensemble called Storm of Corpses (bim-13).

Heule and Dryer have also maintained their own duo called Basshaters, and have a disc on Creative Sources from their trio with Jacob Lindsay. Over the years, they've managed to get themselves over to Europe a couple times, which is presumably where they hooked up with Håvard and Guro, two musicians who seem to have quite successfully overhauled their instruments' basic sonic identities.

It's kind of interesting how, for the most part, the melodic and harmonic activity in these pieces come from the basses (always a good instrument in plural, proven here), while the guitar seems to be content to exist as a sounding unit for all manner of physical manglings. The six-stringed playing on this record is in fact quite winning, coming across as a mixture of Christian Munthe's guitar anti-heroics (if you don't know him, do yourself a favour and look him up) and what Roger Smith might've sounded like if he'd forsaken his beloved nylon-string for a steel counterpart.

But back to the basses: while a lot of free-improvising double bassists automatically reach for upper end of their instrument's register, these two both share a fairly uncommon inclination towards the lower region of things. The reason that this is remarkable in a group context is that it means that our guitar and percussion overseers are exercising a wonderous amount of control, sensitivity, and a finely honed dynamic undertanding in order to make this work, not only in terms of a listener being able to hear everything, but also in their own abilities to communicate and react in the moment.

Jacob's effectiveness as a purveyor of avant-leaning percussive stylings is often evidenced in the frequent moments when it is a) not clear that there is a percussionist present at all, and b) very often it becomes very difficult indeed to make out who's doing what. As far and wide as Bug Incision has happily moved within the realm of improvised music, this is the kind of stuff we started out with, and continue to dig, wholeheartedly."-Bug Incision
