Come 16 April at Home Club, widely respected art-rock band, The Observatory, and leading audio-visual collective, Syndicate, are joining forces for the first time to push the boundaries of sonic & visual expression. This special night will witness a live collaborative improvisational set from both acts followed by the sensorial light & noise performance by Norwegian duo, MoHa!, and the noise antics of Berlin-based London musician, Horacio Pollard.

MoHa! are two young Norwegian musicians, Anders Hana on guitar & synthesizer and Morten J.Olsen on drums and supercollider. They have been working together since 1998 in various corners of experimental music and in different settings. Their first release on Rune Grammofon was “Raus aus Stavanger” in 2006. The release gained a lot of national and international recognition. Their sophomore, “Norwegianism”, was regarded as one of the best records of the year in 2007 under the ʻOuter Limitsʼ category in the renowned music magazine, The Wire. Their music was described by BBC as “funky heavy metal musique concrete”.
In 2008 there was a drastic change in MoHa!ʼs music where they moved from being improvisational to more strictly composed material. After a lot of rehearsing and about 70 concerts in Europe, the duo recorded “One-Way Ticket to Candyland” and “Jeff Careyʼs MoHa!”, both released on Rune Grammofon to rave reviews. MoHa!ʼs music is best described as an extreme Aphex Twin meets Merzbow – precise, revolutionary and staggeringly intense.

Horacio Pollard is a Berlin/London based musician who works with mind-altering obscure noise creations. He started making music in 2000 with his 3-piece band, Cau_Cational Betreet, who built a small following by playing f*cked up music in strange places like motorway bridges, shopping centers, quarries and church roofs, to name a few. Since then, he has released a bunch of solo records on various labels such as Wong Music, Adaadat, Twilight Luggage and his own Neigh%Music. He has toured extensively around Europe, South America and the Far East and has collaborated with artists such as Anla Courtis, Ove Naxx and many more.
