Bendik Giske *sold out*


Sat, 2021/07/03

Bendik Giske (NO/DE) is an artist and saxophonist who uses physicality, vulnerability and endurance as his means of expression. His debut album Surrender was released on Smalltown Supersound in early 2019. It follows the Adjust EP with remixes from Total Freedom and Lotic, as well as Rezzett and Deathprod.
Giske takes the building blocks of electronic music and plays them live - without layering or looping, as best he can to let all the flaws of being human come through. He cites Lindstrom's arpeggio sounds and Evan Parker's circular breathing as references, and by combining the two extreme sides of the scale, he seamlessly fuses freeform jazz and club music. As a composer, Giske has created original works for dance and theatre, and as a performer he is as versatile as he is captivating.
