Johns Lunds
Lund is a Copenhagen based artist, mainly with focus on sound and performance using intensity, persistence and endurance go against the normal assumptions of how a saxophone sounds. As a member of the music collective yoyooyoy he has played in the groups Fjernsyn Fjernsyn, Slütspürt, Yoke & Yohs, G.E.K., Forkert and Sumo Freunds and has also worked together with, Dane T.S. Hawk, P.O. Jørgensen, Peter Brötzmann, Fred Lohnberg Holm, Mette Rasmussen, Jooklo Duo and Mats Gustafsson, among others.

Along with performing Lund has always been involved with arranging shows in the Copenhagen underground scene. In 2010 he started a venue for experimental and extreme music together with Sune Nielsen, Tobias Kirstein and Maria Bertel, called Mayhem. Mayhem has gained a high international reputation and has become a centre for the experimental music scene in Denmark.

John Chantler
John Chantler is a musician and organiser living in Stockholm, Sweden working with electronics, organs and acoustics. He draws on a domestic reimagining of the traditions of studio based electronic music/musique concrete and 20th century minimalism and delivers this with brash revitalized energy. ‘Which way to leave?’ is his latest LP for Lawrence English’s ROOM40 label and the self-reflexive sequencing that tracks the sub-harmonic series in the opening blast of ‘Falling Forward’ positions the record as Chantler’s most explicitly melodic while the record’s abrupt cuts, deft variations of density and unexpected diversions are happily explored with headlong dives into ravishing texture and extended stretches of surface stasis.

“Chantler is a master of small degrees, a precision specialist who can make all manner of sounds, from the confrontationally large to the disappearingly small, serve the same vital purpose.” — Marc Masters

Landmark is happy to invite you to the concert with Johns Lunds / John Chantler – a new duo for saxophone and synthesizer. Johns/John lock into a series of cycles and frequency systems that while loosely in the tradition of the patterned saxophony and accompanying string drone of La Monte Young and the Theatre of Eternal Dream Music’s B Flat Dorian Blues obliterates the instrumental hierarchy that Young espouses for an altogether more unknowable intensity of experience.
