Art's Birthday 2014 Radian meet Mats Gustafsson


The Art's Birthday is the first meeting of the abstract rockers Radian with the extreme saxophonist Mats Gustafsson. The apparent contrast between the Radian-own 'microscopic' focus on sound details and smallest nuances on the one hand, and the expressive presence of Mats Gustafsson's powerful baritone saxophone on the other hand, opens a wide field of synergy, compression and intensification options in total.
Mats Gustafsson and Radian develop especially for Art's Birthday a highly original vision of experimental music, changing between meticulously-composed pieces and freer, almost improvised sections (otherwise in the Radian context a rarity), oscillating between abstract Extended Technique miniatures and electroacoustic Wall-of-sound broadsides.
