Angharad Davies & Tisha Mukarji

“I have around 20 releases featuring Angharad Davies’s fine playing….(but) I think this one might be the finest, due in no small part to the improbably heightened telepathy connecting her to her unsung playing partner Tisha Mukarji.” — Jesse Goin

Áine O’Dwyer

Áine O’Dwyer whose recent double album of improvised organ music, Music for Church Cleaners vol. I & II, is a modern minimalist magnum opus of the highest order. With a background that combines Irish traditional music and contemporary performance, she has created a multi-layered, exploratory, and experiential work that begs questions of historicism and the social proximities of the everyday, as well as the presumed nature of records themselves.” – BOMB Magazine

SAWT OUT — Mazen Kerbaj / Burkhard Beins / Michael Vorfeld

Mazen Kerbaj was born in 1975 in Beirut and is active with comics, painting and music, publishing his first personal graphic works in 2000 and also starting to play publicly that year. His first concert — at Strike’s pub in Beirut — a duo with Lebanese sax player Christine Sehnaoui can possibly be regarded as the first improvised music concert in the Middle East. In 2001, together with guitarist Sharif Sehnaoui ,he created the MILL association that curates IRTIJAL — an annual international festival for free music in Beirut. Mazen Kerbaj currently lives in Berlin. In SAWTOUT — one of his regular working trios — Mazen is joined by percussionist Burkhard Beins and Michael Vorfeld.

Beins — “one of the most distinctive percussionists in European free music” The WIRE — is an acclaimed solo performer on percussion and electronics and also a member of the ensembles Polwechsel, Activity Center, The Sealed Knot, Perlonex, Trio Sowari, Tree, Junk Orbit, Fracture Mechanics, and Splitter Orcheste. He also works with composers/musicans such as Sven-Åke Johansson, Andrea Neumann, Keith Rowe, Axel Dörner, Tarek Atoui, John Tilbury, or Charlemagne Palestine.

Vorfeld also lives in Berlin, working as musician — playing percussion and self-designed string instruments — and visual artist. From early experiences with site specific art projects, Vorfeld’s visual interest shifted towards the use of light in three dimensional spaces. As a musician this is reflected in his concerns for the mixture and relation of different sound characters and their horizontal and vertical organisation.
