Date: Februry 6,2018 Venue: Asagaya TEN Line-up: HåkJohn (from Norway) Kiyasu Orchestra Open 19:30 / Start 20:00 Charge: 2000yen --- Artist Profile --- HåkJohn (from Norway) HåkJohn is an experimental reed/percussion combo consisting of Håkon Hagen Knudsen and John Sæten Lilletvedt. The two met during their education at the university of Stavanger and quickly developed an intuitive sense of playing together, exploring timbral parameters, homogeneity, form and so on. Generally there are no rules for what the group sounds like other than the more obvious restrictions offered by technical limitations, room sound, the types of instruments being used and the like. No rules also means that the music might not always sound freely improvised. Sometimes there might be grooves or riffs coming and going, depending on what feels natural for the two musicians. HåkJohn is all about playing intuitively by one self and together, meaning that influences and inspiration from all Håkon and John has absorbed through their musical lives might come through regardless of genre.
