The Shepherds of Cats formed in early 2014, and had an instant and strong understanding. Their attention to detail is impeccable and have created a deep trust to support each other in the most obscure and ridiculous tangents. Using improvisation as their working method, they create sonic stories and worlds, drenched in incredulity at their own existence, exploring the outer limits of good taste and pushing the limits of what should be considered acceptable. Their compositions are created in real time. They are hunter gatherers – hunting and gathering sounds and re-appropriating them in sometimes inappropriate manners. They have shame but no ego.
The musicians participating in this concert will be:
Aleksander Olszewski – ethnic percussion/reeds/voice
Adam Webster – cello/voice
Jan Fanfare – guitar/loops/voice
Günter Heinz. – trombone , flute
