8 september 2017 19:30 – 24:00
Happy Fridays at the Fylkingen Bar, old/new music spinning exclusively. In concert unexpected combinations, always friendly, feelgood and experimental. Musical evenings spans wide electronic genres, soundart and artmusic.
Lineup: On stage Hara Alonso (ES), PRO424, Sound Quartet ft Hara. DJ Sansibar (Fi) (in the bar).
Hara Alonso frequently tour Europe and constantly perform new and inspiring soundart projects. During this concert she will explore her latest ideas on electronic soundscaping and composition.
She is from a classical background and focused on integration of new technologies in music though composition and performance. She is doing concerts as soloist and as member of different ensembles around Europe in Finland, Italy, Spain, Estonia, Germany, Sweden and Russia.
The Swedish solo project PRO424 has since the debut in 2011 wandered between musically narrow alleys, and finds his passion and inspiration in the classic ambient music, electronica and melodic techno. The LP Immune released on Lamour records is another step musically both into himself and into the unknown, where the musical norm is put to test and challenged by combining the softest ambient music with hard machine techno. The music can be seen as a fragile mix of Underworld and Tangerine Dream, with a scent of Richie Hawtin. Immune is released on vinyl LP and digitally.
