In a single decade Norway’s “Punkt” Festival has elevated the idea of live mixing to unknown heights. The basic inspiration comes from “sampling wizards”, Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, whose idea is to treat acoustically played music with the utmost care and respect, yet essentially to totally reinterpret it. Punkt Ensemble makes this idea a live event. Eivind Aarset is not only a favoured partner for stars like Bill Laswell, Nils Petter Molvær or Jon Hassell, but his seven highly diverse solo albums have also made him one of the most important contemporary guitarists of the improvised music scene. Hamid Drake’s portfolio of famous collaborations is possibly even longer: the Chicago drummer – a welcome special guest artist at Glatt&Verkehrt – combines the ultimate freedom of expression with exceptional precision. We can’t wait for a concert with some world-class “instant composing”.
