mir8, consisting of Werner Dafeldecker, Hilary Jeffery and Tim Wright, creates cinematic, abstract landscapes. For this occasion they are joined by pianist Simon James Phillips and drummer Tony Buck.

The concert during the 2018 edition of Göteborg Art Sounds is an especially produced audio­visual event combining music from the trio’s debut album Perihelion, with algorithmic visuals by Tim Wright and featuring new music composed for their second album. Together with pianist Simon James Phillips and drummer Tony Buck of The Necks, mir8 will create complex hypnotic structures, immersing the listener into a musical landscape of lush movie soundtrack strings, pulsating bass-driven electronics, polyrhythmic tessellations and introspective melodies unwinding into deep space.

Werner Dafeldecker is a key figure in Europe’s improvisation and experimental scenes, working extensively with post­minimalist shifts. Hilary Jeffery and Tim Wright have worked together since the early 90s in the UK electronica project Germ, later forming the group Sand who released three astonishing albums on London’s Soul Jazz Records.

Simon James Phillips is an Australian composer and musician living in Berlin. His work defies most existing labels and is at home in the contexts of classical, new music, experimental, jazz, electronic music. This cross­-fertilisation informs his many creative and performative approaches resulting in unique concerts and events.

Tony Buck is regarded as one of Australia’s most creative and adventurous exports, with vast experience across the globe. As a drummer, percussionist, improviser, guitarist, video maker and producer, he has been involved in a highly diverse array of projects but is probably best known around the world as a member of the trio The Necks.

Since almost 20 years Robert Nacken has worked as a sound engineer with artists like Markus Schmickler / Pluramon, Julee Cruise, Bernd Friedmann, Jaki Liebezeit, zeitkratzer and others. As sound director he has completed complex music theatre pieces, site­-specific installations and other unique multi channel and 3D sound setups.
