Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Danish trance-noise duo H E X teams up with Japanese modular-wizard DORAVIDEO (aka. Ichiraku Yoshimitsu) on their joint debut-album "Multi" which releases April 21st. After meeting at a venue in southern Japan in 2019, a future collaboration was planned.

Due to the madness of the corona-pandemic the first exchange happened in 2022, where H E X and DORAVIDEO recorded Multi and toured Denmark and Germany on a string of powerful trio shows enhanced by DORAVIDEOs intense laser-setup.

Multi is packed with mind-boggling free-form pieces spanning from noise-infested trance to abstract almost architectural sonic collages. H E X and DORAVIDEO weave the physicality of punk with the open-ended wastes of improvised noise. Instruments mutate and transform into a hivemind of intimate electronic madness and fiercely cascading pulses. Influences span far and wide from techno to dark ambient, post-metal to free-jazz, with a steady, beating heart for the cyclical and the occult."-Wetwear

"Anders Bach (b. 1989) is a Danish music-maker, writer, record producer and mixer. He works in his own studio in Vesterbro, Copenhagen.

As a prominent artist and drummer on the Danish music scenes for the past 10+ years, Anders has been focusing on a distinct mix of intense percussion, frenetic electronics and destroyed melodies throughout his carreer. This has gained him national and international renown with both high profile pop acts and the experimental underground.

In recent years Anders' work as a record producer and mixer has intensified. Here he works with a broad range of genres within the experimental and independent, and has been a central part of many celebrated releases in the Danish underground. Furthermore, Anders works with installation-art and mixes and designs sound for interactive experiences.

Anders' writing and research is centered around aesthetics, community and automated music. He is a published writer for Bloomsbury and has many academic publications for international conferences within the electronic music field.

Anders currently performs live with GNOM, Sleep Party People, Luster, H E X feat. Ichiraku Yoshimitsu, Mø and Oh Land."

The Laughing Stone
(Confront)
Taking their song titles from Basil Bunting's 1966 poem "Briggflatts", a mixed freeverse work with a changing rhyme scheme that is noted for its use of sound through word play to move its listeners, an apt analogy to the masterful and sophisticated dialog between double bassist Olie Brice and multi-reedist Paul Dunmall, Dunmall performing on alto & tenor saxophones, flute & clarinet.
