For the next addition of 55 the Formant has teamed up with another Mir staple to bring you a three-part journey through improvised electronics. The Formant will play host to SYNC with Robin Crafoord (from Trulz and Robin) conducting an impromptu jam session with various Norwegian artists manipulating synthesisers, drum machines and computers in a way of dialogue through music. For this edition of SYNC, Robin will be joined by Ashbjørn Blokkum Flø, Gyrid Nordal Kaldestad and Vinny Villbass. Asbjørn Blokkum Flø has a background in experimental electronic music and sound installations, often working with computerised acoustic sound objects. Gyrid Nordal Kaldestad works ina similar field to Asbjørn as a composer, musician and sound engineer. And Vinny Villbass, well that name should be familiar to a few already. Together they will be joined by a modular synthesiser, two Laptops, a TB303, a Dave Smith Tetra synth and Robin’s beloved Pearl syncussion. It will be an evening of community and experimentation and in the social ideal of the project, free to all.
