Mar 15, 2015 Sunday 19:30 - 21:00
3F, Rockbund Art Museum (Shanghai 20 Huqiu Road)
Mikko Savela will perfom two sets of music, one with guitar and electronics, and one with the traditional chinese instrument Gu-zheng, to give a reply to the western representation of east by Mark Bradford's practice in the current show.
During three days of rehearsal he will experiment with different ways to play on the instrument, such as prepearing the strings with metallic objects and use different kinds of microphones and amplification to obtain more unconventional sounds. This is to be seen as a experiment by using extended techniques on a traditional eastern instrument.
Mikko Savela is a guitarist of finnish origin, born is Sweden, currently living in Shanghai. After exploring different genres of music with various groups, he turned into improvisation and started to experiment with different ways to play on the guitar. Today he have his guitar laying down, and use it more as a percussion instrument than a guitar, by plucking the strings by both hands and hitting metallic objects on the guitar body. Besides the guitar he uses different kind of microphones and electronics to amplify the sound.
