Lorenzo Senni: Tireless investigator of dance music’s mechanisms and working parts, and head of respected experimental label Presto!?, the Italian musician produced one of the last couple of years most unique albums "Quantum Jelly" (on label Editions Mego). An amazing deconstruction of sound and rave culture in the 90’s, carefully analyzing it’s constituent parts for reuse in a very different context, with repetition and isolation as key concepts. His work explores the idea of the “buildup” found in euphoric dance music as a starting point to make a non-uplifting, more introspective piece that implicitly preserves its emotional tension and drama.

We are happy to see Lars back at EMS!
Lars Lundehave Hansen has been working in the fields of ambient/drones and noise for the past 16 years - as a soundartist, enthusiastic promotor of and dedicated performer in these fields. The usual works of Lars L. Hansen are often constructions, making a point of being constructions, that emit or react to sounds or noise. In an attempt to explore the relations between timbre / room and action / reaction the works often revolve around controlled randomness, manipulation, expectation, suspended animation as musical criteria and sound as a physical entity.
