BRDCST features Bendik Giske: sax-ual excitement from Norway

Queer Norwegian saxophonist and performer Bendik Giske (who lives in Berlin) considers his biggest influences to be producer Lindstrøm (a fellow countryman) and the circular breathing of free-jazz saxophonist Evan Parker. We mainly hear Colin Stetson as great inspiration, but he worked with both cutting-edge producer Lotic and also electro/noise/ambient artist Deathprod on his impressive debut EP ‘Adjust’. Uncut described his upcoming album debut ‘Surrender’ as ‘Queer freeform jazz inspired by a night in Berlin techno mecca Berghain’.

Bendik Giske plays Thursday 4th of April in La Machine (21:00 – 22.00).
