Kentaro Imai aka Kren is pondering the unstable ensemble that counts him as its architect “I’m always getting asked what kind of band Mountain is but it is different every time”.
Mountain/ Full Edition make their UK debut at Counterflows, uniting multiple generations of artists and activists in Japan’s western Kansai region they make a virtue of their impracticability. Performances by the loose-knit collective may feature anything from 3 to over a dozen members, few whom have any or little musical experience. Performances can encompass, meandering jams, readings, screenings, absurdist theatre, breakdancing, wrestling bouts, sometimes all at once.
“It’s like a really bad drunken karaoke night”.
Soft tissue is a collaboration between Glasgow-based artists Feronia Wennborg and Simon Weins. Working with DIY electronics, everyday objects and digital processing, the duo produce hyperreal textures and hesitant melodies through strategies of shared agency and friendship.
In December 2019 soft tissue released their self-titled debut on Penultimate Press, a collection of sonic explorations based on recordings from everyday life and experiments in analogue feedback. With attention towards quiet noises and small interventions, the duo plays within networks of lo-fi amplification, blurring the boundaries between initiated and environmental sounds.
