Artist Information: 

Superterz. The comet that lights up the sky of Europe’s improvised electronic music scene. Unique, far out, transgressing borders and dizzying perceptions. Now Superterz are once more coming to Japan, accompanied by friends: Japanese trumpeter Toshinori Kondo and Norwegian superstar Nils Petter Molvær are along for the ride. Their concerts cannot be described. They have to be experienced. 

Marcel Vaid (guit/drums/synth)
Marcel Vaid is one of the most popular current composers of film music in Switzerland. Countless national and international awards are a testimony to his exceptional work. He has worked with such acclaimed film directors as Fredi Murer, Spanish director David Pinillos, Oscar- nominee Timo von Gunten, Canadian director Léa Pool or Milo Rau. A member of the European Film Academy EFA and the Swiss Film Academy, he has composed and produced more than 70 scores for feature movies, fiction and documentaries worldwide. 

Ravi Vaid (electronics/synth)
has worked as a producer and experimental musician in the fields of art, music and film. At present, he curates the musical programme of Photobastei in Zurich, Switzerland’s biggest independent, cross-cultural off space. With his documentary “Dachkantine” - a contemporary account of the electronic music scene and the demise of techno’s post-90ies subculture - he gained people’s attention both in Switzerland and abroad. As brothers, however, Marcel & Ravi’s artistic focus has been with Superterz for over two decades now. 

Koho Mori (performance/DIY instruments, Japan)
Koho is at once an artist, dancer, musician, assembler, silk painter and radical objector of any representation. The object is always the protocol of its formation. His traces are found inter alia at the State Gallery in Stuttgart, the National Graphics Collection in Munich, Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe or at Morat Institute of Art and Art History in Freiburg or in various collaborative art projects with architect Peter Zumthor (Therme Vals, Kolumba Museum, etc.). He has been creating sound performances with his experimental project “Just Music” and alongside singer Lauren Newton since the 1980ies. 

Simon Berz (drums/DIY instruments, Switzerland)
Initiator of Badabum, an artists’ improvisation and multimedia platform for research into possible interactions between music and the visual arts. As a drummer and DIY musician, Simon is touring solo through Japan, China, the U.S. and Europe with his own projects IGE*TIMER, FELL and LIQUID LAND alongside varying musicians. For several years now, Simon has worked in close and continuous collaboration with Superterz. Since 2009, a special relationship has connected Simon Berz to New Orleans, as manifested in his latest release “Liquid Land”. 

Toshinori Kondo
Toshinori Kondo (1948) is an avant-garde jazz and jazz fusion trumpeter. Kondo attended Kyoto university in 1967, and became close friends with percussionist Tsuchitori Toshiyuki. In 1972 the pair left university, and Toshiyuki went on to work with Peter Brook, while Kondo joined Yosuke Yamashita. In 1978 he moved to New York, and began performing with Bill Laswell, John Zorn, Fred Frith, and Eraldo Bernocchi. A year later he released his first recording, toured Europe with Eugene Chadbourne, and collaborated with European musicians such as Peter Brotzman. Returning to Japan, he worked with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Kazumi Watanabe, and Herbie Hancock. In the mid-1980s he began focusing on his own career, blending his avant-garde origins with electronic music. In 2002, he worked on an international peace festival in Hiroshima after being approached by the Dalai Lama about organizing one. Kondo cooperated with Bill Laswell to make the album Inamorata in 2007.
