Deathprod: Treetop Drive
The Bergen International Festival is happening these days, and they have a concert series called "Between Sound" in cooperation with the Borealis and Ekko festivals of Bergen.
Monday evening we got to hear a live version of Helge "Deathprod" Sten´s classic noise album "Treetop Drive" from 1994, with Hans Magnus "Snah" Ryan (Motorpsycho) playing the violin (he also did that on the album)! Minimalistic, noisy and in fact quite beautiful, in a room full of smoke and lights by Pekka Stokke.
I hereby confess that I have never heard the album "Treetop Drive", so for me it was a new experience.
"Treetop Drive" is available from Rune Grammofon ( CD released in 2011).
