This duo played their recent show at Oto about a year ago and have since then focusing on their other projects, Jin with her Techno outfit Coldnose and Rickard with his Psych band Flowers Must Die. But now its time to combine melodies from Kurdistan with cosmic electronic to create "Kurdish Electronic Meditation".
“SQ (Sound Quartet) is carried by howling winds from the frozen tundra with an urge to make sound poetry for the masses, an enchanting experimental blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. These rarely published freethinkers creates a low key intense music with the strength of swedish granite that matured for an eternity.”
Thomas Bjelkeborn on electronics has performed at festivals on all continents. Paul Pignon on Sax, Woodwinds and Digeridoo is a pioneer in EAM and lived equally in the UK, Yugoslavia and Sweden. Live visuals is provided by Deadpixel.
