“Welcome to an auditive anarchy where the sound palette is expanded to the extreme”
The Scandinavian trio TEETH releases their debut album, ‘Open Up’, in November 2018 on the Danish label ILK. A tribute to both electronic music, free improv and sound art on an album that’s been created through improvisation where the bands focus on working as an organism has been manifested.
The trio unites three highly interesting scandinavian musicians within electro-acoustics. TEETH is Anders Filipsen (DK), Herman Müntzing (SE) og Håkon Berre (NO), who on ‘Open Up’ in an organic whole explores objects and auditive textures. The broad variety of soundscapes varies between static moments and noise, extreme dynamics, uneven rhythmical structures, minimalism and scruffy landscapes. The three musicians say about the album:
“We wish to create otherworldly soundscapes beyond genre and our own imagination. A breathes heard of birds to schizophrenic patterns and doomsday patterns. The expression of each member contributes to the whole and creates a synergetic wall of sound.”
The band has been together for 4 years and has played concerts in Scandinavia, Denmark and Germany on festivals and venues, but hasn’t released anything before now. An unusual course in this day and age. The slow process is a result of a constant search for new sounds and ways of interacting, that has made the band wait until now to manifest their sound imagery.
Anders Filipsen (DK) has been active on the danish jazz, avantgarde & improv-scene in a decade both as a composer and improviser and as a part of the esteemed Danish label ILK.
Herman Müntzing (SE) is one of the most original artists on the Swedish electronic scene, that utilizes both electronic and acoustic objects.
Håkon Berre (NO) is based in Copenhagen, and is a highly active improviser in a broad spectre of avantgarde projects and works with both acoustic and electronic manipulated sound.
The record is produced by TEETH and mixed by Anders Filipsen.
