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”. 

Nils Petter Molvaer (NO)
Nils Petter Molvær also known as NPM (born 1960) is a Norwegian jazz trumpeter, composer, and record producer. He is considered a pioneer of future jazz, a genre that fuses jazz and electronic music, best showcased on his most commercially successful album, Khmer. Molvær was born and raised on the island of Sula, Møre og Romsdal, Norway, and left at age nineteen to study on the Jazz program at Trondheim Musikkonservatorium (1980–82).[2] He joined the bands Jazzpunkensemblet with Jon Eberson and Masqualero, alongside Arild Andersen, Jon Christensen and Tore Brunborg. Masqualero (named after a Wayne Shorter composition originally recorded by Miles Davis) recorded several albums for ECM Records, and Molvær recorded with other ECM artists before his 1997 debut solo album, Khmer. The record was a fusion of jazz, rock, electronic soundscapes, and hip-hop beats – and quite unlike the delicate "chamber jazz" typically associated with ECM. Molvær's muted trumpet sound, sometimes electronically processed, had an obvious debt to Miles Davis's work of the 1970s and 1980s, but without being a slavish copy. For the first time, ECM released singles - "Song of Sand", backed with three remixes, and "Ligotage". In 2000, a second album followed, Solid Ether, after which Molvær left ECM. He has recorded several albums since, and has also produced film and theater music. He often works with guitarist Eivind Aarset. He has also played with Tabla Beat Science created by Zakir Hussain and Bill Laswell.
