About the Event

SCIARDAC is Dario Fariello on saxophones and electric viola and Harald Fetveit on analog electronics. The duo is named after Dario's father's favourite gastronomic shop, and plays eruptive noise or more delicate improv, depending on the circumstances. They first met in Paris in 2012, and have the last years played together at several occasions in Oslo, where they now both are based, and on tour in Finland and the Baltic countries. The two are in the making of a record, a cassetta and a vinyl, and this will be their second tour together.HARALD FETVEIT started to play noise in the mid-eighties. He has developed a characteristic, forward-leaning style, often full of ruptures and rapid dynamic changes. He was educated in visual arts, and has worked with site specific installations and photography, but also been involved in contemporary dance and performance art, with a.o. Baktruppen. Since 2003, he has been running “Dans for voksne”, a series for experimental concerts and related activities, around 400 events so far, and has played a major role in the development of Oslo’s experimental music scene. As a musician, he has toured in Europe, Russia, East- and South-East Asia, and played at festivals like All Ears, Cable, Sonic Protest and Noise and Fury. His focus has always been on the live-setting. He has played with people like Junko Hiroshige, Hankli Ryu, Hong Chulki, Mattin, Lucio Capece, John Hegre, Jim Denley, Alexei Borisov  and Anla Courtis, with whom he also collaborates in the project DNA? AND? with kids with mental disabilities. He is currently active with drummer Thomas Oxem in their duo SKÆVV and with sax-player Dario Fariello in their duo Sciardac.
