Free show with members of Sweden's Fylkingen in collaboration with S.L.Á.T.U.R. from Reykjavík. This is a double-sided concert divided into one set with Katt Hernandez and Gus Loxbo at 2:30 PM and another one with Maria W Horn and Mats Erlandson at 3:15 PM.
Katt Hernandez moved to Stockholm in 2010. She sits on the board of F.R.I.M., works as an assistant producer at Fylkingen and recently earned a Masters degree in electroacoustic composition from Kungliga Musik Högskolan (the Royal Music Academy of Sweden). This year she’ll start her PHD’s in Lund, Sweden.
Katt is a 13 year veteran of the new, improvised and experimental music scenes in Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and New York, both as a performer and an organizer. She has performed and recorded with a vast array of musicians, dancers, visual artists, film makers and performance artists in venues ranging from underground urban art spaces to ivy league concert halls.
Focused primarily on freely improvised music, Katt draws a firey array of electronic-like sounds and keening melodies from her unaltered, acoustic violin. She also works extensively with microtonality, drawn from a study of a mixture of sources, including traditional folk and sacred musics of the Middle East, Turkey, and Eastern Europe and variated odd-ball old Americana.
Swedish doublebassist and sawplayer Gus Loxbo has developed a playing that uses the sound approach from eam to create soundscapes on an acoustic instrument. Studied in Reykjavik academy of the arts for Ulfar ingi haraldsson.
