Musician/filmmaker Hans Fjellestad tours and records extensively as a solo artist and in collaboration with numerous players on the experimental music scene in well over a dozen countries. An "innovative musician" (All About Jazz), his music has been described as "unbridled sonic freedom...raw, almost shamanic energy that embodies the true essence of unrestricted music" (XLR8R) and a "spicy concoction...refusing to behave itself, it screams, throws things and makes a mess" (The Wire). A classically trained pianist, these days Hans concocts most of his unbridled sound messes with analog synths and vacuum tubes.
Sound descriptionRobotic experimental music created with analog synthesizers.
