  • Performance Introduction

    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.
