Sofia Jernberg – voice

Kjetil Møster – sax & electronics

Mats Gustafsson – sax & electronics

Anders Hana – guitar

Greg Saunier – drums

 

 

THE END IS HERE?

THE END of experimental music as we know it?

THE END IS HERE!

A brand NEW group of experimental music will see the light in 2018!? THE END

The members of the group have experience from work in a huge variety of creative music ensembles over the past years: Deerhoof, Møster!, The Thing, Fire! & Fire! Orchestra, Nervous Cop, Ultralyd, MoHa!, Paavo, Datarock, The Core, Noxagt, NU- ensemble, Brutal Blues and many other essential groups within the contemporary creative music scene of today.

THE END is an attempt to use all of those experiences and melt it together into something new and creative. Something of deeper poetic beauty and harsh brutality. Industrial grindcore free jazz MEETS sing & noise hardcore esthetics!

THE END means the sensational return of Anders Hana on guitar! After years of playing only intense Grindcore drums, he is now back playing the guitar!

THE END means the first serious meeting of the two Scandinavian innovative saxophone free blowers Møster and Gustafsson.

THE END means the presentation of the extreme voice of Sofia Jernberg in a totally new context surrounded by extreme electronics and drum- activites!

THE END means the first ever Scandinavian based group of legendary Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier!

THE END means THE END

THE END is a serious attempt to create new perspectives of contemporary experimental music – where elements of noise, melodies and layers of extreme energy can interact with the different backgrounds and experiences of the musicians and their work in genres as free jazz, noise, alternative rock, free improvised music, contemporary music, opera, grindcore, jazz and related activities!

Expect ENERGY Expect BEAUTY

THE END is making its first tour in January 2018, followed by a studio recording in Bergen, Norway for the UK based label RareNoise Recordings.

EVERYTHING comes to an END.
