Sound Poetry: The Wages of Syntax – Day 4
Artists: Sten Hanson; Ottar Ormstad & Taras Mashtalir (OTTARAS); Lily Greenham; Åke Hodell; Tone Åse; Sten Sandell
From the land of text-sound composition, the intervention of live electronic technology and improvisation adds new spark to Seventies computer music innovations from Sweden and neighboring Norway. Introducing Scandinavian jazz superstars Sten Sandell and Tone Åse.
The late Swedish “text-ljud” artists Sten Hanson and Åke Hodell and Danish vocalist poet Lily Greenham bring their plain-spoken activism to the streets of the San Francisco in a posthumous homage by Other Minds. Video artist and concrete poet Ottar Ormstad teams up with Russian-American composer and keyboard improviser Taras Mashtalir for the first U.S. appearance of the duo OTTARAS. Female jazz vocalist Tone Åse and piano/organ virtuoso Sten Sandell are masters of the intersection of experimental language and free-improvised music, also making their San Francisco debut in world premiere performances.
