BEAM SPLITTER (Audrey Chen and Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø) is a duo for
amplified voice, trombone and occasional analog electronics.

Utilizing the pure sounds of acoustic and closely amplified sound sources,
the duo joins together two individual voices into a distinct dialog that
delves beyond the borders of the corporeal elements of extended technique
and sound. There is an intimacy and conflict that becomes evident as the
two personas intertwine, in moments joining together seamlessly and in the
next, being left with the feeling of irrevocable fracture. The two manage
between these extremes with a kind of improvised grace that reveals an
effort towards a common goal. It is an honest metaphor for a human
relationship in process that even in the most serene moments can leave one
raw and entirely exposed.

Since beginning their collaboration in 2015, Nørstebø and Chen have been
extensively touring the globe, in Europe, New Zealand, Argentina, Brazil,
Taiwan and the USA. They have presented their music in a wide variety of
spaces, taken part in larger commissioned works at the Teatro Colon, Buenos
Aires and largely conceptualized a theatrical adaptation of MEDEA in front
of the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine (for butoh dancers and musicians)
produced by the Ukho Agency. They have shared their collaborative projects
with artists such as Phil Minton, Bob Ostertag, Michael Vorfeld, Thomas
Rohrer, Valentin Tszin, Flavia Ghisalberti, Leonel Kaplan and the Norwegian
duo, Streifenjunko, with Eivind Lønning and Espen Reinertsen.

BEAM SPLITTER's debut album "Rough tongue" was released to rave reviews in
late 2017.

Skrap is Heida Karine Johannesdottir Mobeck on tuba and effects, and Anja
Lauvdal on synths.

In the past few years they have made their mark in bands like Broen,
Skadedyr and Moskus, and when the eccentric indie pop goddess Jenny Hval
played at CTM festival in February it was "FEATURING SKRAP."

In the summer of 2016, Skrap created Antropocen, a commissioned work for
Moldejazz. Antropocen was published in March as a full length album on
Fanfare. Besides the 14 people in the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra (who number
among the most significant musicians from the Norwegian noise, pop, soul,
classical and contemporary scenes), contributors to the album include
Kjartan Fløgstad, Hege Schøyen, Jenny Hval, Susanna and Emilie Nicolas.

Skrap searches for resistance within the eclectic in music. The music is as
much inspired by jazz as it is by classical, hip hop and club music. The
duo ignores all genre conventions, making use of popular musical sounds and
melodies, field recordings and small compositions, and tying it all
together with improvisation.
