Deutsch Nepal is the solo project of Swedish electronic musician Lina Baby Doll (real name Peter Andersson, co-founder with Roger Karmanik of the label Cold Meat Industry) that shuns the ambient fad of the 1990's and remains faithful to 1980's industrial music.
Former member of Swedish industrial cult band Njurmännen, Lina Baby Doll set up his own musical project in 1991. Inspired by the classic Amon Düül II song of the same name, Deutsch Nepal started with a deep and fascinating industrial ambient sound, enriched by hypnotic rhythms, voice samples and repetitive structures.
Deutsch Nepal belongs to the generation of "sound constructivists" of the early 1990s and ranks with In Slaughter Natives and Raison D'Etre among its most distinguished perpetrators.
DEAD LETTERS SPELL OUT DEAD WORDS
Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words is the specter that haunts Sweden's Thomas Ekelund. A graphic designer, musician, and visual artist, Ekelund brings to his body of work a dark vision of brooding isolation tempered by the hope that salvation from the garbled ether of digital and... psychological pollution is possible.
After being diagnosed with a near crippling mental disease, Ekelund sought sanctuary in sound but recoiled from what he created. Ekelund stares into the shadow sounds that invade our lives and grind the spaces between us and sees his fractured reflection staring back. With his splintered mind as a guide, Ekelund plumbs the depths of noisy maelstroms and explores the currents of isolation and madness, conjuring emotive landscapes that draw blood as often as they heal.
Yet, the psychic violence of Ekelund's compositions cannot erase the sympathetic response they evoke. Through sonic alchemy, Ekelund transmutes buzzing drones, ominous atmospheres and dirge-like melodies into spaces where we can seek solace. For it is through these songs that we, like Ekelund, can find joy through pain, calm through anger, comfort through isolation, and peace through madness.
DEER HAPPY PLACE
DEER HAPPY PLACE are Romanie Marty (voice) and David Heizmann (Guitar).
Formed exlusively for this event the duo takes songs once written by tormented souls and wraps them into jazzy sadness.
