Wendra Hill For, a contemporary improvisation ensemble from Norway. 

Wendra Hill For is a creative improvising ensemble with some of Scandinavia's most promising sound artists. Through extensive touring in Europe and Tanzania the band has developed a unique and highly dynamic sound. Wendra Hill For aims at pushing the boundaries of contemporary improvisation by combining extended techniques on acoustic and electric string instruments with analogue sampling, clarinet and vocals, thereby creating musical textures constantly morphing and transforming into new shapes. The band consists of Joel Ring on cello and bass, Jo David Meyer Lysne on acoustic guitars, Jenny Berger Myhre on clarinet, sampling and electronics and Tobias Pfeil on electric guitars and vocals. Individually they have collaborated with such great artists as Thurston Moore, Jenny Hval, Ivar Grydeland and Mats Eilertsen, and they are known for being defining musicians of the improvisation scenes in Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin.

 

秋山徹次 / Tetuzi Akiyama (guitar) 

Born in Tokyo, April 13, 1964.

Akiyama specializes in creating music with elements of both primitivism and realism by connecting his own aspirations, in a minimal and straightforward way, to the special instrumental qualities of the guitar. Sometimes delicately and sometimes boldly, he controls sound volumes ranging from micro to macro, in an attempt to convert the body into an electronic entity.
