Mats Gustafsson & Joachim Nordwall

Swedish noise mavericks Mats Gustafsson (Fire! Orchestra, The Thing, Gush) and Joachim Nordwall (The Skull Defekts) unleash a torrent of energies in this kaleidoscopic new duo of pulsating bass, howling vocals, ecstatic outbursts, low-dynamic experimental music, but always executed with skillful precision.

Gustafsson and Nordwall are united by their uncompromising approach to music and their status as renowned collaborators and improvisers. Mats Gustafsson, meanwhile, has regularly enraptured us over the decades; with his unique energetic saxophone voice, he has made a lasting impact on the development of improvised music. Most recently he was heard in this country as a duo with trombonist Steve Swell (new LP on Idyllic Noise: Gustafsson/Swell: Dreamtime).

Joachim Nordwall is a cornerstone of the Swedish musical underground, exploring the extremities of guitar music with The Skull Defekts and in solo recordings as The iDealist, tapping into the spiritual and political dimensions of electronic music and dub. He previously caused a sensation with the avant punk trio Kid Commando.
