Dausteg (Tony F Wilson: Turntables, Effects/Are Mokkelbost: Laptop, Tenori-On, Effects) were asked by Norwegian artist Børre Sæthre to provide sound for his 2010 NN (Nothing Left //) installation at Galleri Nord Norge in Harstad, Norway. Given the Sci-Fi nature of Sæthre’s work and Harstad’s location 250 kilometres North of the Arctic Circle, the resulting soundtrack is influenced largely by John Carpenter’s The Thing: The duo utilised parts of Ennio Morricone’s original score and other pre-existing sci-fi and horror soundtracks, as well as original compositions by Are Mokkelbost, which forms the main part of this opening segment.
Dausteg aka Tony F Wilson (Spykidelic) & Are Mokkelbost (Single Unit) will be providing sound for an installation by the Norwegian artist Børre Sæthre at 14.00 on June 26th at Galleri Nord-Norge in Harstad Norway. The event is part of the annual Festspillene i Nord-Norge festival in Norway’s far North.
On February 19th 2010, Dausteg (Tony F Wilson and Are Mokkelbost) traveled to Riga to play what was supposed to be a support slot for fellow countrymen Supersilent. However, Supersilent canceled on the day but Dausteg went ahead at a different venue than planned. This Dausteg, which was themed on Animism Vs Artificial Intelligence, took place at Riga’s fantastic Dirty Deal Cafe venue. Grab it here Dausteg: Animism Vs A.I
The theme of this Dausteg is Animism Vs Artificial Intelligence which will encompass everything from Lee Perry’s Super Ape and Oskar Sala’s synthesized birdsong through to atavistic Metal and Kraftwerk and Drexciya’s wet-dreams of electric sheep.
After a lengthy hiatus Dausteg (formerly Deathstep), my club concept with Are Mokkelbost returns to Oslo on September 10th in conjunction with Norway’s Ultima Contemporary Music Festival . Joining us live and representing the UK Hardcore Continuum are the mighty Mount Kimbie. Also performing will be Ipecac recording artist Mick Barr of Ocrilim and Black Metal inspired Hip Hop collective Tri-Function Million. This unholy alliance all comes together in Kulturkirken Jakob, a huge church in Oslo’s centre, naturally. You can find more info here.
