Get ready for an explosion of trance-noise, laser, and modular synth, as Danish duo H E X (Lars Bech Pilgaard og Anders Bach) and Japanese DoraVideo cross blades during Vinterjazz 2022.

H E X and DoraVideo met back in 2019 in Kyushu, Japan, where the anarchistic freeform trance of H E X and DoraVideos free controller setup came together and bathed the audience in a sea of synthetic sounds, lasers and ecstasy. This February, the two will reunite as H E X feat. DoraVideo takes over the majestic surroundings in Musikhuset København.

Behind H E X is guitarist Lars Bech Pilgaard and percussionist Anders Bach. H E X has had a prominent role in the Danish underground scene for the past four years, and their latest album “ms vodou” (Wetwear) was nominated for “Experiment of the Year” at DMA Jazz 2020. Just this December, Anders Bach took ALICE by storm with an inferno of drums as he presented his ALICE Works project “Musik til Gnomen”.

Since the 90s, DoraVideo (Ichiraku Yoshimitsu, f. 1959) has been a both unique and central figure in the Japanese avantgarde scene, collaborating with artists such as Otomo Yoshihide, Keiji Haino and Jim O’Rourke. Ichiraku has frequently toured Europe and USA, and recorded with people such as Eugene Chadbourne and Chris Cutler.

Safe to say the ground is paved for an extraordinary experience as this uncompromising trio unite noise, improvisation and laser on February 18th during Vinterjazz 2022.

This concert is part of Vinterjazz – a national music festival celebrating jazz and exploring its many renditions. Vinterjazz 2022 takes place February 3-27. Read more at www.jazz.dk.
