As a Berlin release party for his brand new LP, Aerodymanic, on Uhrlaut Records Danish wreckstepper Monolog presents another of his kicking live shows on the home leg of the mini-tour.
Support comes from local Ad Noiseam compatriots Kartsen Pflum and Subheim as well as The Buddy System and Voidnoise. It all starts with various metal bands in the 90’s, but with distinct reference to the jazz guitar that he grew up with. This combination resulted in an aggressive sound with complex harmonic structures, shaped as the band Wombat in Combat.
Later he turned towards modern jazz in Vestbirk Noiz Ensemble, a 13-man piece headed by Niels Præstholm, and known for playing anything from pipes, table tennis balls, washing machines, samplers, antique radios and a thundering bass.
Monolog | Ecule Drift
His activities in Berlin have often been rooted at wndl as well as the stage at ZR with its improvised music and modern jazz aesthetics. He soon bonded with EPY from Trust in Austria through a series of live shows in Berlin, while also playing doom jazz with Anders Holst Jensen of Danish stages.
Later playing a number of other Berlin-venues indulging in more functional aesthetic delivering break core sets including the Berghain Kantine. Recently also in a duo project with Karsten Pflum aka A Dying User. Or solo launching drum and bass and skewed wreckstep sets at raumklang, m.i.k.z, subland or other bass dungeons.
Monolog | Vertigo
Currently finishing up the Aerodymanic vinyl summing up recent steps in a harder, more dense and direct form, new to the monolog alias. The Monolog project is constantly changing, aiming for extremities and seeking them musically, technically and emotionally.
Whether it is hammering the drums or creating soothing harmonies, these musical poles are given life by Monolog’s binding of contrasts.
Support: Voidnoise, The Buddy System, Subheim + Kartsen Pflum DJ
