Concert: KONK PACK

Concert: KONK PACK
24. March @ 20.00 (doors open @ 19.00)

Zang and Den Pene Inngang in collaboration with Rimi/Imir are presenting: 

Tim Hodgkinson – lap steel guitar, electronics, clarinet
Roger Turner – drumset & percussion
Thomas Lehn – analogue synthesizer

KONK PACK brings together three major figures in contemporary music. For about a quarter of century this group has amazed audiences at festivals and concerts all over the world with the sheer energy of its rapid-fire interplay, earning numerous critical accolades.
Since 1997, Konk Pack have toured regularly throughout Europe, completed four major tours of the US, and have been described by The Wire magazine’s Lee Henderson as “one of the most exciting improv groups in the world.” The group have released five compact discs, and performed at major music festivals from Vancouver to Belgrade. The musics they’ve made individually are reason enough to take note of this trio, but the music they make together leaves audiences amazed and inspired.

“I can’t think of an improvising group more explosive than this European trio – percussionist Roger Turner, guitarist Tim Hodgkinson, and synth maestro Thomas Lehn bite down hard on whatever they play, confronting even delicate passages with taut intensity. …I’ve seen so much free improv that some of it feels as predictable as ‘Chopsticks’, but these guys keep me pinned to the wall, happily anticipating the next shock.”
