At the beginning
of the new millennium y2k the band Slütspürt was born in the
heart of Copenhagen, Denmark. But after about 5 years of happy childhood
exploring the Danish experimental scene, the band decided to move to Berlin
to broaden horizons and experience a new musical scene.
The music of Slütspürt is often hard to capture in words, because
the band has been experimenting with an awful number of different things
over the last 6 years; home-build instruments, instruments ripped apart,
instruments hardly working but also plain old electric guitars, drums,
saxophones, power-tools and so on. You might say that the foundation of
Slütspüts's musical interaction is improvisation and free music.
Lately the band has been working intensely with drones, feedback and noise,
witch often lead into playing very long pieces using violin, electric
guitars, laptop, saxophones, ethnical instruments and other objects. These
long pieces can also hold elements of folk inspired improvisation, ambient
electronic parts and single chord guitar striking.
The four members of Slütspürt are also the heart of the experimental
music collective yoyooyoy. In yoyooyoy there are 10 working bands, numerous
side and solo projects, all consisting of at least one of the four Slütspürt
members. yoyooyoy has made 18 releases and done more than 200 shows in
Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Germany.
Slütspürt has released records on the Danish label Ninth World
Music, which also features releases by artist such as: David Thomas, Peter
Brötzmann, Mats Gustafson, Pat Thomas, Evan Parker, label director
Peter Ole Jørgensen.
Slütspürt has worked with Norwegian Noise Orchestra at Radio
Nova festival in Oslo 2004, Pat Thomas at Copenhagen jazz festival 2005,
Dane T.S. Hawk, Peter Ole Jørgensen and many others.
