The chamber orchestra The Touchables and Pain Jerk (Kohei Gomi) will perform Pain Jerk’s compositon «Dots Kinematiks» at Atelier Nord ANX Thursday 30th of November from 7PM.

The Touchables play acoustically, but with an electronic approach which involves the exploration of «extreme» tonality, bordering on infra- or ultra sound. This approach led the group to commissioning a piece by Pain Jerk, who is well known for similar work with analog synth. «Dots Kinematiks» is a pioneering piece in regard to the extreme ends of the register, the deepest tone of the octobass is accompanied by the highest tone of the picoletto violin, allowing for a frequency range that goes from 16hz to over 20 000 hz.

The piece will explore the experience of the audience, what the audience is led to feel. Frequency below the audible spectrum can be felt on the body, allowing for an experience that is more than just auditative or visual.

Pain Jerk is one of the most influential and productive artists in the Japanese noise scene. He is considered one of the leading figures within the “dynamic” style of Japanese noise, next to artists such as Merzbow and Kazumoto Endo. He runs the label AMP (3) and is a member of the noise group Gomikawa Fumio.

The chamber orchestra The Touchables includes some of Norway’s most prominent musicians within contemporary music, improvisation, jazz, rock and classical. The orchestra was started in April 2015 and is made up of flexible and shifting crew.
