What?
A night at the library filled with experimental tunes? Sounds about right!
Surrounded by the greats of literature and graphic novels, drone-heavy ambient band, Toft serve up tunes followed by fellow norwegians Cloudbuilder. Aussie musician and organizer John Chantler has developed his sound from organic electronics to his current interests in exploratory electro-acoustics, messy guitars, minimalism, pipe-organs and a loose spin on rhythm.
Upsilon Acrux is the ever-changing, highly acclaimed american prog rock/jazz band initially inspired by King Crimson. All in all a line up that will leave you feeling energized and inspired!
