impro/noise duo

Hilary Jeffery & Zsolt Sőrés (Ahad) - Danube Blues Variations

Hilary Jeffery - trombone and live electronics - composer, writer, artist, and trombone magician based in Amsterdam and Berlin, travelling worldwide.
The Tromboscillator is not a specific instrument, it is an idea of the sound which happens when a trombone mutates and melts into another virtual world. It is the sound of an imaginative journey from interior worlds transformed and transmitted via music: from the mind and breath - through the trombone - to a microphone - into the computer or analogue processor where the audio signal is fed through circuits which transform the sound.

Zsolt Sőrés (Ahad) - viola, electronics, home-made instruments, circuit bent toys, lo-fi theramin, synths, selected percussions, effects, objects - hungarian improvised/electroacoustic and noise musician, sound artist. His main instrument is 5 string viola. Ahad’s music characterised by formation strategy and immediate transitions, the use of unstable acoustic systems and continuous sound layers, unique electronic instruments. 
Within the last 20 years he has performed with a number of improvised, free jazz and experimental musicians and composers around the world. 

They knew each other from 2010, but this was their first concert together.
