Janine ‘Planningtorock’ Rostron and Olof Dreijer, a.k.a. one half of The Knife [above] and techno producer Oni Ayhun, have collaborated on a mini-festival in Sweden, titled CURIOUS.
Dummy report that the festival veers towards the “more experimental side of things”, with performances promised from Stina Nyberg, Cel, Rroxymore, Tragic Cabaret and Planningtorock (DJing, as opposed to playing live). An introduction on the CURIOUS website reads as follows:
“To start with, we simply wanted to see these artists shows!
“We find them really inspiring… they all have very diverse ways in their expressions and it feels like they play around with different norms and genres within each of their context and still have a lot of integrity.
“When we take part in their devotion for sound and movement it feels like something that is less effected by commercial forces and standards, that is more difficult to categorize and motivated for completely different reasons.
CURIOUS takes place on October 6; for more details head to its website.
