Christian Munthe and Christine Sehnaoui (SE / LB)

Influenced by collaborations with Mats Gustafsson and Raymond Strid, listening to Sten Sandell, Derek Bailey and Evan Parker duo, and ethnic music of different kinds.
On discovering improvised music in 1997 Christine Sehnaoui started her autodidactic study of sound experimentation on the alto saxophone. She creates a personal language on how to make electronic music on an acoustic instrument, producing tonguing tricks, unpitched breaths, spittle-flecked growls, biting, slicing notes or breathy echoey sounds. She will be performing in a duo with Christian Munthe on guitar.
